We went as part of a food tour and had a delightful time meeting the owner and sampling his wonderful products. Did we buy....why yes of course....some wonderful truffle salt and caramel topping. Super place right near Pike Market. Go on in and enjoy!

I believe the patron was Veronica and did she know her wines and other small tasty items in the store. We were flying... More

Not a huge truffle oil fan and don't really get the excitement. The manager was delightful and very enthusiastic and knowledgable. We tried several and this is a place for sampling and trying spices and oils.

Wonderful food, appetizer ideas, condiments. You can taste test anything in the store before buying, they also have samples out of different items, from truffle creams, balsamics and aperitifs. A must stop for food aficionados!

We were snagged as we walked by to try their truffle salt - amazing! My friends and I decided to go in and do their wine tasting ($10 for three 2 oz pours) and had a really fun time. The staff were all funny, knowledgable and professional. Great shop in Pike Place Market!

My friend and I both like wine and decided to stop in to check it out. We did the wine tasting which was made fun by the owner and her staff. It was also interesting to check out all the other items in the shop as well. Go there - you will love the shop!

We went in for a glass of wine and ended up enjoying several different wines - both Spanish and Washington state. Also sampled truffle oil, pesto sauce - both of which we purchased. Our hostess was just fantastic and made the whole time there quite enjoyable. Kind of a hidden gem in the hectic area of Pikes Marketplace. If you... More
