I am a bit of a cookbookaddict and this is
my absolute favorite shop! They have a great selection of different kinds of cookbooks and I always find new treasures! It is small and a bit out of the way, but you can easily combine...More
As a proud owner of a vast array of cookbooks and an over enthusiastic baker myself, this place should have got me excited on a seismic scale...but sadly I left downtrodden and without a single one of their overpriced books! The concept is almost romantically...More
For years my sister and I have been going to Books for Cooks every time we were in London because we have loved that place. Well, we won't be doing that ever again!
This year we emailed in advance to make sure what time coffee/lunch...More
Nice selection of books for cooks. This shop has something for everyone. Not really worth to go to the area just for the shop (except if you collect cookbooks). But nice to visit during a portobello road market visit.
Books for Cooks is always a must to visit not only for the endless shelves of cookery books but also for the delicious lunches served. It does get busy and tables are filled quickly so should be taken into consideration if planning a lunch there....More

I used to love this place, I've spent heaps on books here over the years, but visited yesterday for the first time in a while and now there are tables in the bookshop and not just out the back. It was really busy and is...More

As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an
experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
