The moment you walk into Cornucopia, you're smacked in the face by the aroma of freshly ground, flavored coffee. It's really nice.
And so is the selection of cookware, cutlery, gadgets, linens, tableware and much, much more (including, of course, a wide variety of coffees). A cook's paradise, you're sure to find what you're looking for here - and with a range of options. "When we stock an item, we try to hit all price points," says owner Walter Smith. "We have the traditional basics as well as the contemporary versions that employ more- advanced technology. Our shoppers range from beginning cooks to culinary students, so we try to have a little something for everyone."
With the holidays approaching, check out the wall of cookie cutters, the array of serving pieces and, for the collector on your gift list, the impressive and extensive selection of Fiesta dinnerware and other items.
And while you're at Cornucopia, be sure to ask manager Scot Smith - who's known around the shop for his killer omelet - for tips on making a memorable breakfast. Your holiday houseguests will thank you!
