Is there any better combination out there than a good book with a piping hot cup of coffee? Probably not. And that’s the premise that The Story Coffee and Bookstore is based on. Open since November, this locally owned spot near Montgomery Pointe in Ardmore has been working toward becoming a staple in the daily lives of our community. The interior is cozy and welcoming, perfect for working or cracking open a book at lunch. The book collection they have is a mix of new and used, with a strong focus on history, philosophy, and culture. You’re sure to find a thought-provoking book if you’re in search of one!

The one thing they’re really earning rave reviews for is the quality of their coffee. They brew beans from Sightglass Coffee in San Francisco, as well as Methodical Coffee in Greenville, SC. Their menu is simple yet delightful with coffee, espresso, cortados, cappuccinos, lattes, chai, and super tasty pastries. Give it a try this week and see what you think!
