Hands down best Tre Leche I've ever had (also the only Tre Leche I've had, but my friends who have had it before said it was among the best). The owner was happy to explain its recipe's origins in Costa Rica that came out of a trip years back. They serve your drink (a house blend with a splash of... More

I no longer live in Florence, but can't go home now without a trip to the Clay Pot. It has great coffee, the artwork never fails to show me something new and interesting, and the owners truly believe in the community and in downtown revitalization.

I was first introduced to The Clay Pot several years ago, when I traveled from Columbia to Florence meet my now fiance. Since then, every time we're back in Florence I make it a point to make a pit stop at this lovely coffee haven. It's not your typical, fast paced coffee shop with boring furniture, bad music, and the... More

I came by here with my mom to grab some coffee. I ordered a mocha and it was the best mocha I've ever had. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Although this place is slightly pricey, it's more worth it than any other coffee shop in town.

Great coffee and the owner recommended the quiche that was just out of oven. Fresh quiche daily :) The owner is friendly, there was lovely art on the walls, and there were several gluten-free options to choose from.

Wow! Live music, good coffee, fantastic shrimp and grits, amazing desserts, super friendly folks what more could you want on a Sunday morning. The "pop-up brunch" at the Clay Pot is one of the coolest and tastiest things I've experienced in a while.

My most recent visit to the Clay Pot was a few weeks ago for a pop-up brunch with live music. I always enjoy the friendly, laid back atmosphere. The food is fantastic and obviously made from scratch. It is wonderful to have a place like this in Florence!

Although the staff were friendly, they were oblivious to the amount of time their patrons were waiting for breakfast. It took 45 minutes to get two items off their very limited brunch menu. Although the shrimp and grits and sweet potato pancakes were good, they weren't hot; the portions were very small and the prices were very high. We paid... More

Peggy B, Owner at The Clay Pot Coffee Shop, responded to this review

Sueffla thank you for your review, and I apologize for your wait time and also for your serving portions. Last Sunday was a pop up brunch and the first we'd had since May, in a sense unrehearsed. Clay Pot Coffee Shop is a full art center supporting local artisans on all levels. I employ high school students who are in... More

Peggy and Frank are friendly and outgoing and make you feel at home. They serve healthy, homemade meals. Our favorite place to stop to dine while in Florence.

Of course the Clay Pot has great coffee. The food is wonderful too. But on your first visit, I promise you'll discover something surprising. This is just a fun place to go hang out. From the art by local artists to the quirky decor, the atmosphere at the Clay Pot is very open and inviting.
