    you will have a nice welcome very friendly folks who gives out goodies to taste and take home with the Norman smile.
    the shop is nice and central with a section in the back of old cider brewing equipment. They represent many houses but especially the biscutierie Jeannette from nearby Cabourg;

    This is a new store and not easy to find in internet now. But a great visit will tell you why its special, for now give you the site of the biscuterie jeannette as they can guide you there too.

    rue de la Republique: Mixed assortment of shops

    by rexvaughan Written Nov 30, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Studio Mulot

    I discovered the demon of digital cameras when reaching Honfleur after about 10 days in England. My 512 mb card was full! Fortunately I found a shop on rue de la Republique which had another one, and at a cheaper price than the one I had bought in the US. The shop was Mulot and specialized in photo related equipment (although it had the mandatory racks of cheap souvenirs as well). What I noticed however is that this street has tons of shops of all kinds so if you are a shopper, a stroll along here would be in order.

    What to buy: You can find books, jewelry, clothes, lingerie, wine, etc.

  • Gribouille Honfleur: An Paradise of Normand Products

    by dimilag Written Apr 15, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When we first saw it, it seemed indifferent to us. By the time we 've entered we immediately understood that we "hit gold". A huge variety of Normand products were on the shelves waiting for us to buy and to explore their taste. Cidre, Crème de Pomme Verte, Liqueur de Poire, Liquer de Cassis and Calvados are just a small part of the variety of products that this shop has. I strongly recommend you to taste the various kinds of jams. Especially we adored the Confiture de Lait (Jam with milk).

    What to buy: Cidre, Crème de Pomme Verte, Liqueur de Poire, Liquer de Cassis, Calvados, Confitutes (Jams)

    What to pay: If you can buy all the stuff i suggest you, a lot of money.

    La Normandie de Marianne: Taste of the Town

    by ExGuyParis Updated Aug 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This shop offers a range of regional products.

    What to buy: Calvados-- made from apples. A fine bottle of Calvasos makes a fine gift (for a friend or for yourself). We enjoy Calvados-- it is good for cooking as well as drinking. For the first time we tried calvados and cream-- a bit like Bailey's Irish Cream, but with the taste of apples and cream!

    The Fine Art of Honefleur

    Galerie Chaye is one of the nicest art galleries in honfleur, and there are dozens of galleries in this town. I didn't like a lot of the art in a lot of the galleries, but this particular one is impressive. The building itself is a work of art.
