Best Smoke Shop

Golden Leaf Tobacco

Remember when smoking was glamorous and sophisticated? Neither do we, but that doesn't stop us from occasionally pretending otherwise. A great place to do so is at Golden Leaf, where premium tobacco can be sampled and purchased. That's right, sampled: Smoke shops are one of very few places where lighting up indoors is still allowed. The St. Paul location even has private rooms for indulging. Both stores have many unique pipe blends and walk-in humidors stocked with cigars. Lovely pipes and other accoutrements in well laid-out displays tempt buyers. And yes, they have regular old cigs too.
