“Love this bookstore!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We spent a while in here! This place has so many local books to peruse, as well as great works of fiction. There is a lot packed into a small space!!! The shop keeper was so friendly; she gave great advice on a recipes I wanted and showed me a great local cookbook. She also had great recommendations on some local places to eat!

“Bibliophile's Dream”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

Though this shop isn't huge, there are enough rare, first edition, and locally penned books to keep you for an hour or more. Shopkeeper was very helpful and friendly. Will return!

“A must for the literary lover.”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

For the well read, this shop is de rigeur! In the entryway of Faulkner's home in the Quarter, you will find fabulous tomes, first editions, signed books, and many delightful literary artifacts. As much as I enjoyed the first editions, I appreciated the personal letters to Faulkner from Ernest Hemingway, Lord Bryant, Robert Frost, and other. Even if you don't find something to buy, you'll be glad you visited.

“Nice bookstore!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

I love books, so I always seek out bookstores when I travel. The store itself is a little on the small side, but has a great collection of local authors. I would definitely visit again next time I'm in NOLA.
