Paint Your Own

Pottery Studio

Feel good. Paint pottery!

Gather around family and friends and set your artistic spirit free. Let our harbor-front ceramics studio and cafe inspire you.

How It Works: Choose from hundreds of pieces on the shelf and we will supply you with all of the paints, brushes and supplies you need to bring your piece to life. We will dip your piece in a food-safe clear glaze, and it will be ready to be picked up in 5 days, after 5 pm. Each piece is individually priced. Pottery is around $12 (for a 12-oz mug) and up (+ tax), with NO additional studio or firing fees! Can't finish in one day? Bring your receipt and piece back to return at no additional cost.

Tasty Treats
& Delicious Drinks

Join us harbor-side for a real treat.

Delight in a fresh, real-fruit smoothie (dairy-free available upon request). Try a delicious Italian Soda. Or, stop by for a hot cocoa with your family during your harborside walk. Relax and enjoy a mouth-watering cinnamon roll, a slice of velvet cake, or our special-of-the-day.


Enjoy one of our dozens of teas, or if coffee is what you desire, choose from over 30 syrup flavors, customized to your liking. Or, keep it simple and enjoy a cup of house drip. Whether you're in the mood for something sweet, salty or a healthy treat, we have what you're looking for. Learn More >

You're welcome to enjoy beer and wine on-site, or to-go, too! We stock Gig Harbor's local 7 Seas Brewery, Leavenworth's original German-style Biers, Colorado's classic Coors, and MANY more. Learn More >
