You can smell this shop from the street as they roast coffee, besides having spices that locals seek for food preparation. When you enter the shop it is like going back in time, not only do your eyes see how shops once were in Italy, but your senses smell the history of Modena.
Don't miss the chance to spend even 5 minutes back in time!
There are fewer and fewer of these kinds of shops in northern Italy, as many older shop owners leave the business and their shops are renovated into a New York look alike. Once made into a shiny, black and chrome spectacle the old look of Italy cannot be brought back.

What to buy: They have teas, too.
Look for balsamic vinegars here. They will help you find the one right for your budget.
The people who work this shop, are really friendly, and will tell you about the history of their shop if you ask.

What to pay: average prices
