If you've been looking for something that most other stores don't carry (aside from the massive number of mustards!) they may just have it. It's worth going in even if you don't have something specific in mind. So many wonderful things including a large variety of imported treats.

Yes they are fab. at Christmas, but they are just as good, (and not so crowded) at any other time of year. The staff is very helpful and will take time to "find" items for you. They have a great locally made section, and they import from all over, everywhere (They actually carry Tim Tams!!) Stop in during the summer... More

Wonderful little shop with find foods and kitchen gadgets for sure! We always pick up some small jars of mustards which are 4/$12 and the garlic expressions dressing/marinate.....definitely essentials from there! Worth the stop if passing through Merrickville!

This shop seems to have everything when it comes to teas, coffees, condiments, kitchen gadgets, Xmas decorations to list just a few types of products they have. The staff were VERY friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the products they sell. A must visit when in Merrickville, even if you are only there for a few hours like we were.

Omg I could spend days in this stores. The smells were amazing. Fresh bread right out of the oven. All different kinds of oils and mustards to say the least. Disappointed it is a kitchen type store and missing certain items, but the garlic expressions made up for it!!

Thanks, Tracey, for taking the time to review your visit!

Did you get upstairs to our second level? that's where all the baking and more kitchenware is kept. Sorry about the timing but... More

A fantastic shop. You could easily spend an hour in there and still keep discovering more high quality items. I try to stop in every time I go to Merrickville

During our Ottawa stay, we managed to go through Merrickville, twice. The first time, I missed Mrs. McGarrigle's cute little shop. The second time, I went in & discovered it was not so little. Several rooms were stuffed with gourmet food imports from many countries. Also, there was cooking utensils, bake-wear & knives, a cheese counter, oils & vinegar, dishware,... More
