For the coffee snobs:-)

I visited the Ugliest Mugs Coffee shop on our last day of vacation, although all my younger family members went daily to get coffee. A small yet very popular coffee shop. Considering the size suprised how quickly they get to everyone. Definitely recommend. They also have pastries for sale.

Well made coffee drinks and fresh (and big) muffins and other pastries. There's seating in the back in addition to what you see in front.

This was a great find in Avon. Good coffee, very good pastries, and that unique charm that reminds you that you're not in just another Starbucks. They sell artwork, cool mugs, jewelry, and lots of other stuff to keep everyone entertained. Not a whole lot of seating, but we were able to find space at a communal table. I always... More

They had great coffee and have a cute beading spot right in the store. We have been there three times since we stayed here. I would highly recommend.

We had some coffee's and pastry. It was good and the atmosphere was worth the stop. The staff worked hard to get our order just right. Well done.

We were driving back to Duck from Cape Hatteras and saw this place and quickly made a u-turn. The coffee shop has a great bohemian beach feel and upon entering the whole place smelled delicious! I was impressed with the options and ended up choosing the s'mores frappe while my daughter got the peppermint patty iced coffee. Both were amazing... More

We were here last week for coffee and the lattes, smoothies and just good strong black coffee was delicious. Friendly staff, fun mugs (yes, they're ugly) and a bead store in the back if you're so inclined. Our friend who live in Avon year round gets his coffee here every morning :)

Looking for a coffee shop and passed this one and stopped just because of the funny name. Well went inside and the shop must be named after the rude lady behind the counter because she was awful. Just go to the gas station to get coffee if you are ever in Avon, NC.

We stopped by for a couple lattes and a light breakfast one morning before hitting the beach. I was disappointed that they didn't have almond milk, but they did have soy. My husband had a whole milk vanilla latte. They were ok, but not worth the $6.00 a latte for sure. Looks like we will be driving to Buxton and... More
