If you’ve ever gone in search of nigella, epazote or chili threads in Ottawa, you know fresh, high-quality herbs and spices can be hard to find. Friendly, expert advice can be just as scarce, since most grocers know relatively little about herbs and spices.
At Cardamom & Cloves, we aim to change all that. We’re Ottawa’s premier spice shop. We source a wide selection of the best spices and herbs from around the world (and our own region).
But we don’t just stock herbs and spices — we know a lot about them, their rich history, deep cultural significance, and range of applications. It’s knowledge we love to share, and one of the secrets to our outstanding customer service. At Cardamom & Cloves, you’ll find Ottawa’s best selection of fresh herbs and whole spices pre-packaged, and ground to order. Our friendly, knowledgeable salespeople are a great resource for information on herb and spice origins, proper storage and use. Visit us at our various pop up locations or through our online store.
