Potage's Cauldron Shop was the first shop one encountered when entering North Side, Diagon Alley from the Leaky Cauldron. It sold all types of cauldrons, displaying them in a stack outside the shop, under a sign which read: "Cauldrons - All Sizes - Copper, Brass, Pewter, Silver - Self-Stirring - Collapsible."[1] It is owned by Madam Potage.

A branch of the shop is also located in Hogsmeade, and one is located in Knockturn Alley.
