The original Spice House was located on 33rd and Galena Street in Milwaukee. Bill and Ruth moved it to historic Old World Third Street in the seventies just as the city and neighborhood began its resurrection. With its old European charm, Third Street is anchored by Usinger’s Famous Sausage Company and Mader's German Restaurant.

We were able to purchase the building that has housed our shop here since 1992. Long time customers may remember our various migrations on the street. Consequently, it’s a relief to have a permanent home. An historical building, the Adam Bauer building dates to 1858 and originally housed a "konditorei," or German bakery and sweet shop. The original owners lived upstairs. After extensive renovations, we were able to install our very own demonstration kitchen above the shop. We are thrilled to be part of the evolution of downtown Milwaukee. The future looks wonderful!

The Milwaukee store is certified by the Kosher Supervisors of Wisconsin.

Love, Love, Love this store. If you love to cook you must visit. They have a nice array of spices. They hand craft and blend many spices here. The place smells magnificent. Much of the staff is trained in the culinary arts so if you have questions they can answer them for you.
