If you are interested in fabulous extracts for cooking, this is the place to go. Nothing synthetic here. The place looks like an old fashion chemist's shop.

This is a real throwback in time store. Although they specialize in their extracts, the store is a quirky collection of items that recall previous times. It is a lot of fun to walk through and the proprietors are extremely friendly.

If you like to bake you must go to this store and buy their homemade vanilla. Tastes phenominal and helps everything you bake to taste better. Then buy more of their spices and extracts like the almond extract. Buy the Worchestershire sauce.

This charming, historic general store is more than a local attraction, but rather a source of unsurpassed flavor extracts for cooking and baking made by the proprietors.
