You may experience a little sticker shock at first, but there’s real value here. It’s not quite on par with Napa Rose across the way, but the same dedication to quality and originality is evident from the menu to the service. Kids will find lots to like about the food, while adults will enjoy the California wine country–inspired menu options (from smoked salmon to seasonal flatbreads) and a leisurely cocktail or glass of wine. You’ll want to save some room for dessert too—who could pass up warm bread pudding with vanilla sauce? A Manitowoc, Wisconsin, reader recommends the café as an alternative to dining inside DCA, writing:

We ended up eating at Storytellers Café on a spur-of-the-moment decision, and it was one of the best places at which we ate at the park, as far as food, price, and atmosphere. The lemonade with the foam on top was AMAZING!

Setting and Atmosphere

Storytellers Café carries the Grand Californian Hotel’s Arts and Crafts theme throughout with large, open beams; natural wood and wood carvings; milled stone; and stained glass. The walls are adorned with impressive murals depicting the state’s rich literary history, from Mark Twain’s “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County” to Scott O’Dell’s Island of the Blue Dolphins.

House Specialties

Children under age 10 will love the character breakfast buffet. Hosted by Mickey Mouse, the meal features a complement of cartoon friends who visit the tables, sing songs, and pose for photos between bites of omelets, waffles, and caramel French toast. The dinner buffet features a meat-carving station and rotating selections of seafood and pasta.

Other Recommendations

The chilaquiles with fresh eggs and tomatillo salsa is the best item on the breakfast buffet. The charred corn chowder with rotisserie chicken at dinner is filling. Kids can make their own pizzas.
