Welcome to Amelia Island’s Indie bookstore where you can shop for books, sip delicious coffee or signature wine or craft beer, pick up a creative greeting card and unique gift, and/or dine on a delicious breakfast or lunch. Enjoy the ambience of the bistro and outdoor patio while dining on specialties including the Little Paris Bookshop Quiche of the Day, Simple Abundance Chicken Pot Pie, Madeline’s Chicken Salad Croissant, Under the Tuscan Sun Fruit & Nut Plate, Eat Pray Love Hummus & Flatbread, and our deliciously healthy Acai Berry Bowl!
Bacon’s hydroponic lettuces grown locally are used in all bistro salads: Secret Garden Salad, Ina’s Chicken Salad, and A Walk in the Woods Wheatberry Salad. Stop in and see us!
With seating for 125 theatre-style or 66 for banquets, the upstairs art gallery and event space (with elevator access) at Story & Song Center for Arts & Culture is an attractive alternative to more sterile meeting rooms. Surrounded by art from local artists, books and hand-crafted gifts, the setting is perfect for small groups or wedding parties. Full-service catering from our bistro is available.
The crew at Story & Song is ready to meet all of your needs with attentive service, a broad variety of menu items and beverages, high quality stage, sound and audio-visual set-up and a private, intimate setting in our Art Gallery.
We specialize in “life event” celebrations such as baby showers, milestone anniversaries, and birthday parties for all ages. We also host corporate training and evening events, and simple gatherings with friends, too.
I stopped by for a bite to eat, having always wanted to try. I could not have been happier. I had the recommended Ina Garten chicken salad on incredibly fresh spinach with a delicious dressing that I have to go back for. Oh, also a cup of the Tomato Bisque soup. Both of these, I was told, were favorites, and I can see why.
My happy place
I only wish I lived closer year round! Each time I go, I am inspired and feel the attention and care of the staff and see the wonderful design of the store with nooks and crannies, reading spaces and wondrous titles, and teas and cookies and soups and sandwiches, my next best to being there is ordering from them. That attention to detail makes it a pleasure! It's my go to and has finally given me a way out from under big box store conglomerates who lose the person. Bravo Story and Song and multi grazie
Best on Amelia Island!
My visit to Story & Song was the highlight of my trip to Amelia Island. It's a warm and welcoming space with a beautifully presented array of unique books, cards, oils and candles. And a lovely space for children with room to play! The staff kindly greeted us and we were seated for the best meal I had on Amelia island: fresh tomato bisque and a gouda grilled sandwich with vegetable pesto. I only wish I could have stayed in town longer to enjoy some of the amazing events.
Best bagels on the island
Only place to get decent bagels. Water Bagels from Da Bronx. Frozen, take home and heat in oven.
Inside a very quaint and gift and book shop. In a quiet area outsiders busy downtown. Easy parking. Also has a bistro, outside covered seating.
Best. Soup. ANYWHERE
S&SBB is a great little venue for a light meal or snack. Their soups are varied, healthy, and delicious!
