We had a lovely time tasting wines and various other delicacies with Veronica. We came in to escape the craziness of Pike Place for a bit and ended up staying an hour and leaving with four really intriguing wines and some amazing spreads.

We loved the truffle oil. We actually went another place to buy macaroni and cheese, then came back to the truffle cafe and they added truffle oil to our mac and cheese, and it was fantastic. Accomodating, great variety, nice tastings. Loved this place.
