“A hidden jewel”
Reviewed April 11, 2006

It's not an easy or obvious place to find, hidden as it is in the tiny town of Helmsburg, Indiana. Yet, for those lucky ones that experience the Fig Tree Gallery and Coffee Shop it's more than worth the trip! This is a haven of enlightenment, offering something for nearly every taste, from the extensive African Art collection to the live jazz/blues/folk or ?? entertainment to the incredible collection of recent science fiction/fantasy memorabilia on the second floor. You can browse through and purchase unique artifacts, books by select local authors, wonderful coffees and cakes...even your own 'Figgie' shirt. The owner/operators are delightful people, and everyone is treated with warmth, courtesy and good humor. I am a regular visitor, and I drive a very long way to get there. There is no denying it--this place is special. It's a diamond gleaming in the wilds of Helmsburg.

“Home away from home.”
Reviewed April 10, 2006

They make you feel welcome soon as you come in the door. Alot
of locals in there, but they make you feel like one of them.
Coffee is excellent and wonderful homemade desserts. Nice to
sit around and take in the Art. They have alot of Jigsaw Puzzles on the wall that patrons have put together,anyone is
welcome to join in. They have Music on Thursdays, by local
Bands & other groups.Some thursday nights standing room only. They put on Plays a few times a year.Cleanest restrooms I've seen. Miss them when they close in winter. On St.Patricks Day
they have quite a get together, with Bag Pipers and Knights
having fights outside. Sort of off the beaten path, but well
worth it. Once you come, you'll be back.
