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.

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!
