Conveniently located right off the main highway on your way to/from West Yellowstone, The Coffee Pot is a great place for a light lunch, wonderful coffee & teas, and the most scrumptious pastries you’ll ever enjoy (as good as Grandma makes).
I had a slice of Quiche Lorain…let me tell you, this wasn’t your Costco variety, this was home-made with quality ingredients you can taste. I then had to try one of their pastries for dessert…I opted for a peach turnover—the crust was flaky and so full of peaches I could hardly contain my excitement.
The Coffee Pot/Mountain Arts Pottery are housed at the same location, which makes for more than just a place to tantalize your taste buds…it’s an experience. You’ll find yourself enamored with the variety of handthrown pottery…from platters, mugs, dishes to canister sets—all in wonderful glazes. The two business are run by a lovely couple, Dave and Jennie Lockie.
The “Mountain Arts Pottery” studio is located in the back of The Coffee Pot, where Dave and his small team collaborate and produce everything you see in the store. It’s really quite an operation with very humble beginnings as Dave tells it. I had a wonderful time meeting Dave and Jennie and I’m sure you will too.
