Omnivore Books Will Satisfy Your Appetite for Foodie Beach Reads

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

If you weren't looking for Omnivore Books, you might miss it. Nestled on the corner of Cesar Chavez and Church Street in Noe Valley, Bon Appetit once named this spot one of the top culinary bookstores in America. (Alice Waters is also a fan.) New books, used books, rare cookbooks, memoirs; this tiny treasure trove has everything a ravenous reader would want. But getting started with selecting beach reads from all the titles? That could be a challenge. We asked Omnivore Books owner Celia Sack for her picks, and she happily obliged. If you can only take a few foodie reads on your trip this summer, these should be on your list.
