We love visiting Village Pottery! Their food is incredible, the service is excellent, and it's always fun to paint some pottery after you eat.

Description
We are a family owned, paint-your- own pottery studio and cafe. Make no mistake, we are not just your grandmas favorite tea room. We have kid and husband approved menu choices. The food we cook our customers is prepared with the same care as if they are guests in our home. We serve only fresh, homemade, high quality food, with love from our very own staff. The only freezer we use is for ice. Our produce is locally purchased, when available, almost daily. Come try us and taste the Village difference.
