Who we are
We are a locally-owned spice and herb shop in the Noe Valley district of San Francisco. We carry all of the seasoning essentials, along with many hard-to-find items.
Our team consists of owners Matthew and Phuong, as well as our friends and neighbors who have helped make this shop everything that it is.
What inspired us
We looked at the culinary landscape of San Francisco and realized a specialty spice shop was sorely missing. All the options we saw were either outside of the city or national chains, grocery stores, and bulk wholesalers. We wanted to offer a centrally located, easy to get to storefront in a friendly neighborhood that serves everyday people looking for quality herbs and spices.
We also are avid homecooks and love using unique ingredients (or classic ingredients in unusual ways) and staying on top of food trends. We wanted to build a store that we ourselves would enjoy shopping at, and that's what we aspire to bring to you.
Our mission is to help you.
