  • Nestled in the French Quarter's Pirate Alley, this shop served as home to Ernest Hemingway when he wrote his first novel. He went on to complete several others in the small home. It is now an amazing rare book store. Highly highly recommended.
  • A very very cool spot to visit! I heard about this store on Anthony Bourdain's show and knew I had to go. Plan to spend a little time here, as there are many rare, first editions to look through. I bought a book by Faulkner to get the authentic experience!
  • Loved the shop!!! Small place filled with bookies😉browsing. You can talk books there and owners read. Yeah!!!
  • Small but filled book shop with lots of classics and great help from the woman that worked there
