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.
Jeff Brugees is a fabulous shop there was a friendly and polite service. Beautiful for gifts or to treat yourself and it wasn't too expensive either. The icecreams were delicious and as for the gift we brought the gentleman spent lots of time and care wrapping it for us.
What to buy: Chocolates, sweetes, sorbets and icecream.
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.
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 Compagnie de Calvados can offer you an introduction to the pleasures of Calvados, a regional drink made from apples. You can sample the wares before buying.
Be sure to taste creme de calvados-- a bit like Bailey's Irish Cream (but imagine apples and cream).
What to buy: Calvados!
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.
