It's always a good 'The Cafe'

Imagine this Fall or Christmas at 'The Cafe' beautifully decorated...

In the oldest standing building in the historic small Midwest town of Walnut, Iowa, The Notebook Café has an amazing and unique place for women to gather. 'The Cafe' is located in our 1875 historic bank building restored by The Notebook Cafe Publisher, Shelly Thompson, her husband, and parents. Since the fall of 2017 'The Cafe' has welcomed many women's groups including Bible Study and circle groups, Birthday gatherings, sisters, mother's and daughter's, and lifetime friends. 'The Cafe' offers a signature Cafe brunch, devotion time with The Notebook Cafe Publisher, Shelly Thompson, and concludes with a tour of the 1875 historic bank building. After your time at 'The Cafe', you can leisurely stroll along the quaint brick lined streets of Walnut and enjoy several amazing shops featuring vintage, shabby, recycled, upscaled, and repurposed finds. It's a great meet-up for a 'Girl's Day Out with God!' where you'll be refreshed in the Word...enjoy a relaxed time of fellowship with friends...and have fun with some great shopping! Don't forget about Birthday parties (who wouldn't want to celebrate their Birthday in an 1875 historic building)!

'The Cafe' is held in an 1875 historical restored bank building in Walnut, Iowa. Check out a few photos below!
