Thanks for Visiting


If it has been a little while since you have visited Cardamom & Cloves, you will notice things are a little different around here. I have absolutely adored running Ottawa’s favourite spice shop for the past 5 years! But, as life often does, a perfect storm of set backs and opportunity was sent my way. In the end, the choice that was best for my family and myself was to set aside the spice retail side of Cardamom & Cloves and focus on the community side. Getting to know all of you and share my love of herbs and spices is still the best part of my day! All this while running a home daycare to give my little Spice Baby (really now a Spice Toddler) a chance to grow her communication skills.

    • All of our spice blends are gluten free – however they are not made in a gluten free facility and cross contamination is always a concern. However the blends are made without any fillers or additives only spices and herbs.
