Mags & Fags
Ranked #31 of 80 Shopping in Ottawa
Reviewed 30 November 2014

Located on Elgin street this is a great stop to pick up the latest edition of your favourite magazine or international newspaper. Always amazed at the incredible selection that is available. The place also offers a range of quirky gifts.

This store is an Ottawa institution. Located on Elgin Street (and area with numerous bars and restaurants as well as a few boutiques) not far from the Parliament buildings for over 30 years, it originally sold magazines, newspapers, cigars and cigarettes. It still carries the above...but moving with the times, it now not only caters to the newshound (in a smoking jacket?) but has evolved to become an urbanites' general store with additions of quirky and useful things for you or the folks waiting for you to come home....cards, chocolate (some 2012 critics choice prize winning chocolate from Newfoundland), quirky baby stuff, dog gift section....did I say urbanite's general store????!l
