“I felt at home”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Found this book shop in San Francisco, brilliant if you are into baking. This shop was quaint, and full of love from someone who is passionate about baking. Loads of baking and cooking books - Old and New - this is a place where you can spend hours being fascinated with the various books to hand. The staff is very friendly and very helpful

“Food book heaven”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

I have wandered by Omnivore a couple times when visiting in San Francisco, but it has never been open (as it is usually late and I am heading for dinner). I made point this trip that I would get there at a reasonable hour and was rewarded for my efforts. The shop is small, but you could linger there forever. Not only are there cookbooks, there are cookbooks on everything, plus books on food and eating and everything you could ask for. Without sounding Seussian, there are new books and old books and big ones and small, really a book for everything. But before this just sounds like a warehouse, I have to say what made it great was the woman who helped me. She helped me find a book the way a waiter might help you pick a dish. She asked about what I liked and why and handed me the perfect book to make the return flight a bit more enjoyable.
