Donn Zver is a wonderful combination of charismatic showman and talented artist. His studio is so beautiful. If you are lucky to see him in production, you will be fascinated to see how quickly he can create pots on his potters wheel. He has a huge kiln that fires off stunning red and purple glazes that are a real signature... More

The atmosphere is beautiful, notably that the plates were all made in their onsite pottery factory. Some were hexagonal, others were rectangles. Even the salt and pepper shakers were pottery! The colours were in purple and mauve, with flowers. The food was exquisite. The potato-leek soup was delicious. There were chunks but not too rustic and big; the salt level... More

Food was delicious and service excellent. I also bought 2 pottery pieces. The potter was selling some as a fund raising for an I'll child and donating his services. Very impressed by that!

I've been shopping at this pottery since it opened many years ago . . . for gifts, for myself and sometimes just to enjoy the beauty of Donn's creations. Over the years, he's added many different designs and glazes to keep old customers interested and attract a newer generation. Today, I picked up 6 gorgeous custom made mugs which he... More

I have been to the Potters Cafe several time and it was favourite spot of my Mom's. The staff and Donn always made her feel special. The food is always wonderful and of course the dinnerware is beautiful. A great place to have lunch/dinner and also get some shopping done!

Cafe Troy offers a good selection of delicious food in a warm and inviting setting. We were celebrating a friends birthday and had all agreed that Cafe Troy was the perfect place to visit again. Located on a country road admist rolling farmland midway between Hamilton and Cambridge it was easy for us to get to traveling from Paris. We... More

The best place to go to get your money worth. Food is delirious and for a reasonable price. Best of all is the friendly service. Shopping and buying the pottery is a good investment, It's beautiful and sure to get collectors value down the road.

A nice quiet drive about 20 min from Hamilton will take you to the Donn Zver Pottery and Cafe Troy Restaurant. I came down here for lunch Sunday and called to make reservations. When I got there, I was given a table at the entrance of the restaurant as if I was in exile. I asked them to move me... More
