English books are a rare find in France, let alone a whole bookshop full of them, where you can also have some tea and stay for a bit. I loved their selection, truly a booklovers place. Big thumbs up for their large, contemporaty and very affordable second hand collection; 5 books for €10,- is a steal. Highly recommended.

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.
