Recently my wife and her extended family had Sunday Brunch (the only day it is served) at the Ugly Mug. There is a flat charge of $10 for all you can eat which includes all your breakfast favorites with omelets made to order along with pancakes any way you like them and all the usual breakfast amenities. I might add... More

Ate here for lunch with my family. Had soup and sandwich lunch special. Nothing special. Service was good. The problem I had was the place was dirty! The straws were out in the open on the table and not sanitary. The bathrooms were filthy! Will not return!

We have visited the Ugly Mugg every time we travel to this location; we fell in love with it the first few times we visited for lunch so decided to try breakfast. We will not return for breakfast in the future. Our waitress didn't even use paper to write down our order which is likely why she failed to bring... More

The Ugly Mugg has a lunch special each day. The day we were there it was chicken and dumplings. They have several "named" sandwiches that appear to be their claim to fame. I had the United Nations which was sort of a smorgasbord in a sandwich. Very good. Coffee was above average.

Looking to support small business enterprises, I chose Ugly Mug for a quick morning bite to eat and coffee. The egg sandwich featured tasty ham and the black coffee was stout, as I prefer. The interior is roomy with table seatings or couches are available, also. I'm pretty certain they offer WiFi. Outdoor patio seating is available, too.

We have not tried any of the meals, only the hot beverages and pastries. Every time we have gotten good food and lovely coffee/hot chocolate. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming and the baristas are very attentive. This is a regular stop when we're in the area visiting family.
