Governors Cigar & Pipe was founded in 2014 by proprietor, Friday Ellis. With a love for all things tobacco, Friday set out to create a cigar shop that was not only a place to connect with others, but also a place to share about the industry he loves so much.

Governors Cigar & Pipe is located in the heart of Monroe’s historic Garden District. We specialize in boutique cigars, quality pipe tobacco, and a diverse selection of pipes. We are the area’s only Xikar dealer with a full line of cutters and lighters that come with Xikar’s life-time warranty. Come in and checkout our extensive line of humidors and accessories.
