— Sign outside Potage's Cauldron Shop[src]

Potage's Cauldron Shop was a shop on the North Side, Diagon Alley that sold all types of cauldrons, displaying them in a stack outside the shop, under a sign displaying what cauldrons they had available.[2] It was the first shop encountered when entering Diagon Alley from the Leaky Cauldron. It was owned and run by Madam Potage.

A branch of the shop was also located in Knockturn Alley.
