This is a fascinating place to visit and shop. A great old grocery with lots of small rooms jammed with foods. Good selection of cheeses and pastries. Pick some up for the room or to enjoy on a bench while touring the city

What an incredible find! Such a cool store that's actually still open for business. They had some great day to day food and some good gifts to take home if you're visiting.

We got here at noon so that might be why a lot of the selection was gone. But I didnt find there was anything special about this place and the food was EXTREMELY overpriced. Walked in for about 30 seconds and walked back out.
