Kitchen Witch is a small, but purrfect, book shop in the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans. We specialize in rare, hard to find, out of print and pre-owned books on food and cooking. This is a fully functional independent book store and not just a website location.
We are located at 631 Toulouse Street in a building that was constructed in 1830. We open for business six days a week, closed on Tuesday, from ten thiry in the morning until five in the evening; due to our squirrley schedules and lives, we are only open for a half a day on Monday. Which half (?) you ask? The first half from 10:30 until 2:00. At that time we run errands like headless chickens so that we can fall exausted on Tuesday, regroup and do it all again; fortunately for us, we love what we're doing!
Being we are a two person operation with outside jobs, there are times when we get to the shop a little earlier or later and the same may go for our closing time. We are ALWAYS open by appointment. The shop's phone number is 504-528-8382 and we gladly will take and execute telephone purchases.
We will happily ship your purchases, and all out of state shippings save the 9% taxes that we must extract from in-shop clients. We do ship 'Media Mail' and that takes seven to ten days from time of departure. Our zip code is 70130
Debbie Lindsey and Philipe LaMancusa (the two person operating team) look forward to your visit, either in person or by phone/email/spirit/carrier pigeon.
We are full of advice on dining and other visitor concerns, we are very friendly. In fact, let us know when your birthday is and we'll
send you a card!
Small but perfect
We also carry a full line of new Creole, Cajun and Louisiana cookbooks. We can furnish you with a list. We happen to be building this site ourselves, so please be patient with us. There will be blanks that will need to be filled in, eyes to dot and tees to cross. We're dancing as fast as we can. While this site is being built you may reach us in two ways with any questions: 1. email firstname.lastname@example.org or 2. call 504-528-8382
We also buy cookbooks. Please click the link above for our criteria.
