We return back to the store to get more tea. Very good selection of teas, and olive oils and vinaigrette. Very friendly and helpful staff. This store is on our visit list when we return back to Alexandria.

Lots of different types of olive oils, able to taste test in the shop, and reasonably priced. Also have spices and suggestions for pairings with different food & drink. Makes for great gifts.

You don't get much more specific than exclusively olive oil! This plCe is cool to look around in and sample assorted infused olive oils. I took my dad here (the master chef at my parents' house), and he really enjoyed it! He bought some oils...More

The tastings are sooo delicious and the service is 5 star. Once you shop there, other business just don't match up. Hints and suggestions too!

A delightful shop that sells only olive oils and balsamic vinegars. The customer service was really great--attentive but not predatory. Large selection of flavor infused oils and vinegars and you can taste them ALL. I recommend the black walnut balsamic and kiwi white balsamic vinegar,...More
