“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” –C.S. Lewis
When you’re looking for a restaurant at which to eat and relax, there are many factors that you consider—the type of food, the atmosphere, the cost, the company, and the convenience. No matter the factors, though, the most memorable restaurants are the most unique ones, and here in Waynesboro, Virginia, we have just such an establishment.
Stone Soup Books is a café and a bookstore, and during the warmer months, it boasts a lush garden as well. Its location is perfect, as it’s nestled in downtown Waynesboro and centered in the verdant beauty of the Shenandoah Valley.
The bookstore at Stone Soup features a fantastic collection of rare, out of print, and collectable books, and if you can’t locate a book that you would like, they promise to help you track it down. You can also share your enjoyment of reading with other book lovers at various book gatherings and events, often accompanied by tea or wine. (Coming up on January 26, 2012 is Stone Soup’s “Book Tea” for only $8 a person. Make your reservations now!)
The café section of Stone Soup is known for a delicious selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, wraps, and teas. Ingredients are locally grown, organic, fresh, and healthy: “Breaking bread with your neighbors and visitors offers fellowship and a connection to your community.” (Stone Soup Books)
