My Mom & I were just out wandering as tourists do....and we stumbled upon this shop and decided to go in. It looked inviting and had a friendly appearance, not a 'high pressure to buy' appearance. Lynn greeted us and welcomed us to sample and...More

We stopped by to taste some flavoured oils and vinegars and we really enjoyed the quick experience. The staff were helpful and very knowledgable and we ended up buying a few things that we are frequently now enjoying in our kitchen. It's worth the stop!

Very helpful, but not pushy staff. Very free tasting area with dozens of choices. They also serve a light lunch too. We enjoyed their vinegars the most, also tasted their wines from lost river winery across the alley.

Lots of great flavored olive oils & balsamic vinegars. Staff offers good recommendations on combinations and pairings. They'll give you a free sample bottle if you show them your receipt for wine tasting/purchase at Lost River Winery tasting room nearby.

This is a terrific place, just steps away from Pike Place Market. They focus exclusively on gourmet olive oils and vinegars. The staff are very knowledgable and friendly and will help with tastings and selection. You MUST try the white grapefruit balsamic, it is delicious!!!!
