  • A very fun lunch stop! Good, healthy food surrounded by young & mature community ceramic artists at work with gift shop.
  • 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.
  • Great atmosphere
  • Best coffee around.
