Tasty treats & more!!

We really liked this shop, and if you like coffee, you will too!!! The ugly mugs surround the shop, and might be a little disturbing to a child that has a sensitive side, as some of the mugs are..... Really kinda ugly! But the shop itself is very cool! Interesting local prints and art abound, so... read more

This is a cute coffee place with quirky "uglie" mugs lining the walls (hence its name). It seems like a gathering place for returning summer home owners - both times we visited people were chatting with each other so it has kind of a local vibe. The shop itself houses several other offerings (a coffee shop/bead store/ice cream shop/fax/internet/copy service)... More

Got an iced coffee and it still had coffee grounds left over in it! Also they have you put your own cream and sugar in it which I did not like too much. This place was really expensive and is not worth the money. Sorta cute shop, was expecting more ugly mugs though.

This is a nice quiet enviroment to sip some coffee and have a chat. One can also purchase hand made crafts and jewelry on the premise.

We went with our family of 4 and got coffee, a smoothie and some pastries. The coffee was great, and the pastries were good. The smoothie was the best we ever had!

This was a very cute coffee shop. The coffee was good and there was a back room with tons of beads and tables so you could make jewelry and sip your coffee.

So charming and delicious coffee, we even got a pound to go. Try the Cape Hatteras med. blend. The shop is adorable and the apple uglies are great.

We went to Uglie Mugs in the morning, and we weren't disappointed. The drinks were great, and the food was good too. Unfortunately, the service wasn't what we've been used to down here. Usually, everyone is happy and ready to help. The girl who waited on us wasn't angry, she just didn't say anything other than the total. For a... More

Great selection and I was so happy to see that they offered soy milk for my latte! My husband said the regular coffee was a little strong but he likes it that way. Their cranberry orange muffin was delicious as well. Love the selection and friendly staff. Definitely our go to coffee shop when visiting the island. My son loved... More
