Excellent little shop, established in 1887, whose windows bulge with every conceivable type of domestic coffee maker. Inside little has changed since the turn of the century; their claim to be a haven to all those bored with standard items is easily justified, the walls being covered with shelving holding their stocks of over 50 varieties.
The choice of teas and tisanes is even more expansive, with every conceivable region and flavour on offer.
Other useful items offered are ground roasted figs, vanilla pods and marron glace. A mail order service operates.
