This Spice House was one of the stops on our recent Chicago Food Planet tour. What a treat! We learned about spices (cinnamon and pepper in particular) and smelled and tasted our way through the store. Fabulous!

Fun spot to try and buy delicious unique spices! Prices were decent and not out of line! If in the area would definitely stop again and if not I would make an online order!
