Do NOT drive past!!
Between Multicap and the Service Station at 269 Padstow Rd Eight mile Plains is "Monte Lupo Pottery and Cafe."
Tucked back from the road is a welcoming cafe and gallery.
The shop is run by Multicap to support people with disabilities by helping them create pottery and mosaics and also to work in the shop.
What a wonderland of colour and styles. Bowls, mugs, and figurines are a feast for the eyes. The friendly staff were very welcoming. I enjoyed coffee and a florentine while I drooled over the gorgeous goodies for sale.
I totally fell in love with the Mosaic People dotted around the shop. They are so quirky and full of character. It'd be more like adoption than a purchase. I resisted on this visit, but I suspect I'll be returning after pay day!!
