My husband and I buy a lot of books, and we love buying from Munro's. The service the last time was not up their normal professional standard. As we were lining up to pay for our purchases, the short haired mature manning the till (not sure if she one of the new owners) did not greet us, she was very... 更多
Start with a beautiful old building on Government street. Add dark wood bookshelves and fill them with a wide variety of books and magazines. Top it off with a friendly and knowledgable staff and you have Munroe Books. It's a "must do" every time I'm in Victoria.
Beautiful shop on Government Street in downtown Victoria. I had less than an hour but I stopped in to see the selection of adult colouring books and the tools to go with. I asked the very helpful staff to direct me and the service was very personable. Definitely recommend this shop for the book lover.
It doesn't get better than Munro's Books. In a beautiful heritage building on the main tourist steet, it's my go to place for wandering book shelves and adding to my already overloaded shelves at home.

Wound up visiting three times, since it was centrally located and we couldn't resist the temptation to stop in. Munro's has a terrific selection of books and knowledgable sales staff. In an age of vanishing bookstores, this is a great one.

The gentle hum and drowsy atmosphere from soft filtered light, means that it doesn't feel crowded or rushed, even when busy. Housed in a former bank, the... 更多
Cozy is the right adjective for this fantastic local bookstore, number three best in the world! Very helpful staff, they helped me find exactly what I was looking for at a real decent price. It can be busy, but not chaotic, just a perfect place to get a good book! Closes at 6 pm
My family and I really enjoyed spending a rainy afternoon at Munros. Great selection of books - particularly the regional collections. The staff was friendly and very willing to assist. Victoria's equivalent to Powells in our hometown. :)
