  • Munro’s Books is an authentic local book store. They curate books that are of an interest to the local customers, as well as widely distributed titles. Many of the retailers are now omitting classics section, but not this bookstore. Browsing both adult and children’s classic sections is such a delight. Their staff are intergenerational, which is also greatly appreciated. Custom order for specific items that are not in stock can be requested, and the staff are knowledgable and willing to help. The interior is lovely, full of dark wooden shelves with a large stained-glass window. The crown-jewel of the shopping experience at Munro’s is when classical musicians come to play during the Christmas season! The store then bears an ambience that resembles Victorian winter, which cannot be replicated in any large retail stores or shopping online.
  • One of my favourite bookstores in the world! I pretty much visit once a week: fantastic staff, great selection, stunning location.
  • The nicest book store I've ever been. Beautiful building and a great selection. I highly recommend it.
  • Love to visit this book store when ever I am in Victoria. Great atmosphere to browse and find something interesting to read.
  • Great old-fashioned bookstore jam-packed with tons and tons of books. Good selection of maps too. I always find something good to read there.
