The Spice House has become my go-to for myself as well as to get gifts for people who like to cook. They have the best of everything there, spice wise! It is also in a great area - old town! Pros: variety of quality spices Cons: parking in old town more

Excellent Knowledgeable Staff 5/22/2008

You can smell this store long before you get to the door. There are so many spices to choose from, at reasonable prices. The staff is very friendly and ready to help you with picking out your spices. I just tried one a couple nights ago. It was amazing. I am so excited to try the other new spices I bought. I really wish we had a similar store where I live. If you are into baking or cooking, this store is somewhere you want to go, even if it is out of the way. When I go back to Chicago, this is one place I will definitely visit again. Pros: Service, selection, prices Cons: parking can be hard to find on the street more

Spice and everything nice 11/22/2005

I just love the Spice House. I often come here to buy items to put in a gift basket or buy their already packaged gift boxes. They have a fabulous selection and everything is fresh. Ive also learned quite a bit about unusual spices that I have never even heard of before and learned how to use them in my cooking. The staff is so friendly and helpful. They even have recipes available that you can try out in your own kitchen. PROS: Vast selection, many are out of the ordinary CONS: more

Amazing variety! 11/8/2005

This is a great place for gifts for those who love to cook. They have a huge assortment of spices and lots of suggestions for how to use them! I could spend hours here. Prices seem reasonable. more

Great place to make your food spicy 7/19/2005

If you are tired of the same boring, bland chicken, stop by the spice house to pick up a variety of unique and tasty spice blends. There are so many spices in this place that you can smell if from about 10 feet away, while standing outside! Come here to season just about everything you own in your kitchen. PROS: Really cool variety CONS: more

What a great place 7/19/2005

They offer some wonderful and exotic spices, herbs and seasonings, all for a great price (way below retail). You can find whatever you're looking for at this lovely little shop. If you are looking for something special to spice up your culinary creations, you can get some good ideas from this store. more

Go in for the smell alone! 5/24/2005

This place is intoxicating! Your head will spin with all the wonderful smells! Once you get your bearings, you'll be amazed by what you'll find. From spices you use every day to the most exotic, it's all fresh and accessible! Don't be afraid to ask questions staff is very helpful. You'll never buy a spice at the supermarket again. Perfect hostess/host gifts too! more

The Best 8/13/2002

The best thing about the spice house is the variety of spices from everywhere on earth; labels even tell you where that particular spice is from and gives ideas about how it can be used. No, wait, the best thing about the spice house is that the prices are very reasonable No, wait, the best thing about the spice house is that the employees are friendly and knowledgeable,and very patient. With that many spices it is hard to make up ones mind about what and how much to buy. The staff understands that and just lets you "check it out". That's a lot of best things about one store, but that what makes this one of the best stores I have visited in a long time. I can't think of any cons, except that I never take enough money with me to buy everything I want. Pros: nice atmoshpere, store smell yummy more

Spice delight 6/21/2002

The aroma from this homey little shop is almost overwhelming when you walk in the door, but it's a welcoming smell. They have all sorts of spices and herbs that are not readily available in every grocery store--plus you can buy smaller amounts than what you might get at a grocery store. I love the gift boxes. It's a terrific place to find unique gifts for the baker or cook in your life. Pros: Unique gifts, Friendly staff Cons: Parking more
