Unique and historic bookstore
Oct 2018 • Couples
Fantastic selection of titles, memorabilia, special events and an outdoor reading porch with lovely afternoon light. They have a wonderful section specific to South African authors and the knowledgeable proprietor helped me to select several books (which I've since happily devoured). If you enjoy finding a place that has a vibrant heart of its own and a long history in the community, Ike's cannot be missed. It is truly special.

Fantastic Book Shop full of character, books and art
Feb 2017 • Couples
A bibliophiles paradise. A literary gem in this city. Set upstairs in a lovely building the shop is crammed with books. Specialising in Africana the shop and its late eponymous owner have a rich history. Now owned by Jo who worked for Ike, there is a fantastic selection of books. Travel, politics, history, military history and fiction from nice modern and keenly priced first editions to penguins. All such good value. The various typewriters, the NFS section of books about books and the cookery books in the kitchen are all wonderful. If you have any time to spare between 10am and 4pm in Durban, and consider yourself a book lover, then this is your destination. Those who like art will appreciate their ample section and wide variety on art, with unusual editions about African art standing out. Of course the history sections are broken down into areas such is the quantity available. I was just so impressed. And the service and pleasant atmosphere was terrific.
