Omnivore Bookstore in San Francisco

posted on: Monday, July 5, 2010

A food bookstore.

Last week I crossed one thing off my summer list. I spent the day in the city by my lone self. Except for dinner, when I met up with a friend and that was fun. It's not that I love my own company it's just that I really wanted to go to Omnivore without the kids. I wanted to look and sit and read for as long as I wanted. 

and I did.

I don't know how long I stayed there for. I wasn't worried about time. I love cookbooks, no wait, that is an understatement. It's not just cookbooks it's books about food in general that I love. Pictures. Writing. Recipes. So fun.

and of course the staff is great. She was so patient with me showing me all the different children's cookbooks.

I got the Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook for Enzo, for Christmas. It's part of that summer list, you know Christmas shopping early so that I'm not stressed out in the end of the year. 

They have all sorts of great vintage books as well.

Next time you're in San Francisco make sure you hit up Omnivore and if you want to get me an early Christmas present this is the place.
