  • This place is very unique and has lots to offer from the cutest little shop to outdoor music to painting pottery or grabbing a bite at the cafe - a very nice place to take friends when up in the woods...  more »
  • I was so sad we could not stay and paint some ceramics. There were so many interesting items in display! Pottery items, wall art, garden art, jewelry, clothing items, and some very funny wall plaques....  more »
  • A trip to the Potter's Shed to listen to music in the evening is an enjoyable event. Open air stage at back of Shed has music and food.

  • Ambiance is wonderful. Great place to shop for unusual gifts.
  • Wonderful to say the least. What a gorgeous place with such intricate little designs & things! The food is amazing. Very real & fresh! Our sandwiches had a nice portion of meat & chips that came with. The decor & atmosphere are very welcoming. The booths are so cozy & private. The Italian sodas are great. I can't say enough good about the place. A must stop if you're in the area. We plan on coming back soon. Possibly later today for some afternoon coffee. Oh, and that was just the cafe lunch experience. Once we walked around & saw all the things this place has to offer it just got better. You can paint your own pottery, buy fairy garden supplies, see live music, walk the beautiful gardens, relax on the couches up front, use the wifi, shop handmade pottery. This place is full of things! My new favorite spot whenever we come up this way.
  • A very fun lunch stop! Good, healthy food surrounded by young & mature community ceramic artists at work with gift shop.
  • Great atmosphere
  • Best coffee around.
