This little place is a gem, and I always go at least once per trip. Great place for herbs, and the proprietors' mix or "melange" spice bags make wonderful gifts of layered spices for meat, fish, poultry, or salads. Foodies know this place -- the...More

I used to like to visit this shop, but this was my last trip. It was always quirky, and the elderly owners have always been appropriately cranky - and this was one of the reasons I liked to shop here - but times have changed,...More

The proprietor is an arrogant, pompus individual. Unless you craft your question precisely, he will just answer yes, no or sorry. If you are not a local, you will wait and wait and wait. I have visited this place before to buy spices, but there...More
