Stone Soup Books and Cafe is a charming little spot in downtown Waynesboro. It is located in a 115-year-old farmhouse surrounded by a garden. Stone Soup sells new and used books, displays local artwork, and serves up some of the best food in town. I am excited to announce that they are now selling some of my handmade journals. They currently have two large and two small Coptic journals, and a few of my mini concertina books on display. I'm also going to be bringing in a few more, like some leather-bound Italian long stitch books, as I finish them.
Stone Soup is walking distance from our office, and Tony and I usually try to head down there about once a week for lunch. Aside from their ever-changing specials and delicious soups, for the past year my go-to item on the menu has been the brie, pear, and honey sandwich on multi-grain ciabatta bread. It is such a fantastic creation, and is one of the best sandwiches I've ever tasted. Tony and I went into Stone Soup again earlier this week and I decided to branch out and try something new. And I'm glad I did, because I think I now have a new favorite on the menu! The goat cheese and spiced walnut sandwich with balsamic vinaigrette dressing (also on the multi-grain ciabatta) was fantastic. I had been a little wary of trying it because I didn't know what I would think about a cheese and nut sandwich, but it was surprisingly hearty and tasty.
If you live near the Shenandoah Valley, I highly recommend stopping by Stone Soup for a bite to eat. And please check out my journals while you're there too!
