    Garden District Book Shop: Garden District Book Shop

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love visiting book stores, this one was great full of books all over the place, a good collection of everything and (no surprise) a corner (in coffin shape! Pic 3) with Anna Rice’s books of course (they also have first edition signed by her)

    What we liked most were the books dedicated to the architecture of the city in general but also about the Garden District (that’s why we visited the area anyway). We also bought one with some amazing old black & white pictures.

    The people that work there are really helpful and friendly.

    The bookstore is located in old building (from 1884), there is another store with some interesting gifts for decoration (pic 4), a lot of art objects and gifts here, some were really nice but the service was slow very slow.

    The café next door is perfect to sit and read the books you just bought :)
