We wandered in after a museum visit and were thrilled by the comfortable surroundings and warm welcome. And the books! What a wonderful selection to browse through and take a break from the hustle and heat of Aix. Found a few books I would never find at home and a book bag with "I love Darcy" on it.

This is a "real" English bookstore.
It must be one of the few remaining in 2017.
What a surprise to find it in Aix-en -Provence.
The stock is extensive and absolutely up to date. Tea and scones (and air conditioning)
are a bonus when shopping in this delightful store. Nobody rushes you or pressures you in any way to make your selection. There is something for everyone. One of our top 5 "go to" spots for our regular visits to Provence.

Some people would say their drinks are pricey but again, being situated in Aix-en-Provence, I think their prices are quite reasonable.
Besides, I love the interior!

Went there twice in October and really liked it. Book in a bar is a bookstore, which has books in different languages, and a Cafe. The Café offers all kind of Coffee Drinks and a small variety of snacks.
The whole atmosphere is very cosy. There are tables and reading nooches all over the place and you can also have your coffee there. - not only in a designated area. The place invites to stay and spend some time, even if you do not want to buy a book.

Book in Bar has lots to offer and it's all good.
Vast selection of books in English and you'll find many other languages upstairs. Carefully chosen "Provence" section.
Comfortable seating, good coffee, and a decent restroom for patrons.
