I have purchased a few of the oils and balsamic vinegar myself as well as given them as gifts. I recently brought my friend in the store who had never been to Coronado. She loved it and has a few items shipped to her home out of state.. 5 star service and quality. I am hoping to try the cooking class when I have time. -Laura A.
When you enjoy the little things, life tastes so much better
We exist for our customers. Every recipe we create, new product we order, tasting we explain, and cookbook we write. We love to see the look when the first taste of flavored olive oil hits their tongue, or the giggle that we hear after a balsamic has awakened their senses. We live for those little moments.
Thank you to all of our supporters, online and in our store on Orange Ave.
I went in today to buy some gifts for my daughters teachers for the last day of school. Roberta was SO friendly and helpful and wrapped my purchases up beautifully!! I’m a repeat customer and absolutely LOVE this shop! I could spend a good portion of my day in there taste testing the different oils! Excellent quality and a good variety of specialty items! Coronado Taste of Oils is fabulous!!!!!!! – Sara B.
Five stars indeed! I was given a bottle of their Blood Orange Fused Olive Oil and was smitten. It will be a staple in my kitchen. I just ordered and received two more bottles. My five star rating includes acknowledging superior customer service as well as quality product. I had a bit of trouble placing an on line order. I left a message requesting assistance and my request was promptly attended to. Thank you Roberta and Terri for your gracious help. I can’t wait to try some other items offered. – Judi T.
Came here on a food tour last year and have been back a few times to buy more product. Wow- they really have a lot of oils and vinegars in this place! And the best thing is that you can try them all before you decide which ones you want. Deeeeeelicious! My first time here I tried so many vinegars that I wound up with a case of heartburn so bad, it had me thinking that I was gonna burst into flames (not their fault, obviously).
The staff are very knowledgable about the products and their uses, and very friendly and helpful. I’ve always stopped by since then whenever I’m in Coronado. – Rob D.
I’ve never been to an olive oil/vinegar shop quite like this one. What a variety of natural flavor and infused oils/vinegars they have here. The quality of the oils and the flavors infused in the oils and vinegars is truly unbelievable. I didn’t try a single flavor that I didn’t like. The peach vinegar really blew me away– intensely infused, yet not overwhelming to the senses, this was so delicious and wonderful that I think I’m going to have to make a special trip back to Coronado just for this. The shop is conveniently located on the main drag of shops in the center of town, and everything is so nicely kept– beautiful displays, warm staff, simple and clean design. You are free to try as many oils/vinegars as you please as well, which makes it a lot of fun to browse! What a special culinary find! – Catherine C.
Such a lovely shop. Came here this past Saturday on a food tour of Coronado. Had the espresso balsamic vinegar over a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was divine. Ended up purchasing the dark chocolate balsamic vinegar and its fantastic. The gals there are super nice. Such an extensive selection of olive oils and vinegars which they invite you to sample. I really like the lavender and cinnamon pear vinegars. This is great place to pick up a thoughtful hostess gift or a little something for your favorite foodie! – Suzy G.
It is so wonderful when you meet people who are really passionate about what they do, and you can really tell this store is a labor of love. We stopped in during the Bite San Diego tour with a really open mind. We tried probably 8 or so different oils and vinegars until we found the two we wanted to take home with us–Mushroom Sage Olive Oil & Raspberry Vinegar. We had a great time tasting and learning about the origins, shelf lives and differences between real oil & vinegar vs. what you buy at the chain grocery stores. We will definitely be long-term customers! Overall, this place is filled with positive energy and great tastes. I wish it was closer to LA, but they do have a website you can order from! 🙂 – Lauren A.
Yogurtland but with oils.
The people there are so friendly and nice. You can try different types of oil before trying which is nice since it is kind of on the pricey side of 18 bucks a bottle. They spend a lot of time wrapping/packaging it and they do gift wrapping for free.
Really like 18 year old one and the peach one. They have a lot of good combination and recommendations if you ask them about it. Definitely give this place a try, one of a kind place! – Willis W.
I keep going back for more!!! After going in and tasting samples of delicious flavored oils and vinegars, we fell in love!!! We will never purchase oils or vinegars in the store again. We will always return to Coronado Taste of Oils!!! – Tammy R.
Best ever for a unique gift or the yummiest of yummy oil blends! -Richelle P.
