It's half cafe, half pottery painting, and is just the fun, modern, funky kind of place that Montrose was needing. You don't have to paint anything if you don't want to - you can just go in for a coffee or yummy light lunch.
The tiles in front of the counter show the handprints of staff, builders and early customers. (I believe I've been added since this photo was taken!) I've also painted a tile in the style of my quirky hills and sheep paintings, a number of which are displayed for sale in the cafe.
There aren't a huge number of options for children's birthday parties around here, but your little darlings can now paint their very own piece of pottery and have party food at Cafe O'Clay for £10 per head.
You can also just pop in to paint something whenever you like - on a recent wet Sunday, I took the kids along and we had a lovely cosy, painting session. I decorated a bowl for my breakfast cereal and my girls painted little boxes.
Hand painted pottery makes a great personalised Christmas pressent, especially for grandparents, so if you're in the area, give it a go!
