If you can read French & love to cook/cookbooks , you may have found heaven in this bookstore. Wow what a culinary selection of French cookbooks. I always find a special book or two every time I visit. This time was no different. A wonderful Gluten free one!

A waiter at my hotel restaurant tipped me off about this spot, and I wasn't disappointed. I had inquired whether the chef had any recommendations for a good bread baking cookbook (in a quest to reproduce une baguette traditionelle) and he suggested that I pay this librairie a visit. It is quaint and easily overlooked - definitely not a tourist... More

After a couple days of doing the touristy Parisian stuff, I needed some shopping therapy. This small bookstore specializes in culinary books. I spent a great deal of time checking out the wine & cocktails sections. I speak French, but I am not a native French speaker. I have had mixed French language bookstore experiences in before in Montreal. Shopping... More

A wonderful book store packed with cook books. Yes, most are in French, but. don't let that deter you. If you are serious about food, language is not a barrier. There are a number of books in English also as well as a fine section of cookbooks for children and I have found some good ones for my grandchildren.

My wife loves cook books and I love wine books. We both loved this fantastic book store that met both of our needs. They also sold some interesting books for my children. They had a decent selection of english books and the staff was very helpful when I had a question.

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
