Ephraim Clayworks   Leroy's Coffee Cafe

Ephraim Clayworks

Understated and beautiful Raku pottery is Brian's specialty, in addition to organizing the Door County 1/2 Marathon. This shop, two doors down in a turn-of-the-century log cabin, offers utilitarian pieces as well as handsome artwork. It is a working studio where you may be lucky to catch Brian throwing on his wheel in the back of the shop.


Leroy's Coffee Cafe

Our guests love having Leroy's three doors down for an early morning or late night bolt of great coffee and pastries. Indoor seating with games in this turn-of-the-century log cabin or popular outdoor seating where you can watch the world go by.

Beach People Water Street Gallery

Beach People

Stacy B. herself is the essence of fun, bringing us her whimsical selection of teen props, funky jewelry, summer decorative accessories and wall decor artfully arranged in her little white cottage. Definitely worth a look; and a volleyball net on the front lawn entices passer-bys to get up a game while Adirondacks offer seating for spectators.


Water Street Gallery

Then there is Fred B., Stacy's husband, in the larger cottage next door, also a Door County native and an energetic, self-taught painter. Stop by the Gallery for an array of framed Door County art and nautical maps and great conversation.

Wilson's Ice Cream Parlor Door County Confectionery

Wilson's Ice Cream Parlor

Originating in 1909, this old-fashioned ice cream parlor is a must visit. Featuring home brewed root beer and great ice cream from the classic soda fountain. Lunch and dinner is served on the outdoor patio with a water view. Line up early to get your cone and catch Ephraim's famous sunset at water's edge.


Door County Confectionery

Fudge for breakfast? This store opens the earliest in Ephraim, at 9 a.m., with an unbeatable selection of classic candy from long ago, chosen from barrels and puchased by the pound, as well as homemade fudge. Hard to get it home in one piece.

Good Eggs

Joel, a.k.a Mr. Good Eggs, serve up a wonderful breakfast / lunch wrap with your choice of some very gourmet ingredients that will keep you filled up all day. Surf boards provide outdoor seating with a water view. Open until 2pm.


Ephraim Beach

The expanse of white sandy beach and shallow water makes this a great spot for families, with a wrap around view of Eagle Bluff in Peninsula State Park forming the southern crescent, around to the view of our quintessential village on the hill. Walk down for the day and take your lunch break back at Eagle Harbor Inn. Remember to pack your towel!
