  • The best place for coffee connoisseurs to buy the tastiest beans! Not only is there a large selection of coffee and tea, but all sorts of other goodies, from candy, to spices, to almond paste!
  • I'm pretty sure these guys couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Phenomenal selection of coffee beans and odd ingredients your Italian grandmother definitely knows about.
  • Friendly and helpful staff. Super cool place to get coffee!
  • My favorite small grocery in the North End. Outstanding selection of herbs, coffees, and traditional Italian snacks.
  • Greatest coffee shop in Boston
  • Get a lb of the pecan rum roasted coffee beans.
  • Wonderful selection of spices and whole bean coffee here, but note that they do NOT brew here.
  • Great service and great spices for good prices
  • Make sure to say hi to Nicky (assuming you can find her)!
  • This small shop has far more than just coffee beans and tea. It also offers over 150 different spices, cheese, dried fruit, whole nuts, sauces, beans, Italian candy, & fun sweets like licorice pipes.
  • The Dutch Cocoa powder is excellent, well worth the price!
  • I can't even count the number of things I love about this place. Great people, products & prices. AND they have the ever-elusive dill seed that I need for pickling.
  • Friendly, super knowledgeable staff. Huge selection of coffee, fresh ground to your order. Great prices. Really, just a excellent experience.
  • Is it Rainforest Alliance Certified? It should be.
  • Definitely THE best lemon slush
  • Best lemon slush in the summertime! So good!
  • Best small local shop in Boston! It hasn't changed in at least 25 years (prob a lot longer)...great selection of grains, candies, coffee (of course) and best lemon slush I've ever had (summer only). I
