On The Way Out

The morning we had to leave Staunton, we stopped by Mugshots to grab some coffee for the road. The atmosphere was unique and fun, the coffee was to die for, and the staff friendly!

We've been here before on several occasions a year or so ago and enjoyed the coffee and the service. We also prefer local coffee shops to the national franchises as they are generally friendly and have better coffee. That's why we came back. Maybe it was because it was a Sunday morning, but the latte I had was not hot,... More

Good coffee and baked goods with a nice atmosphere. Wish they had the delicious cinnamon scones every day!

Excellent coffee, baked goods, and the most wonderful barista named Jill! We sat for two hours catching up on their free wi-fi and meeting all the locals.

We stayed in a place that had a kitchenette and went to Mugshots for coffee and juice each morning. The servers were great, the coffee hot and good and the juice was cold. What more could you want?

I had an Americano waiting for my train - Amtrak station is a block away and they offer a 10% discount for train riders. My drink was perfect. I noticed too late that they offer single origin pour-overs, with genuine freshly roasted beans. I did purchase some beans for home and cannot wait for the morning! Pleasant shop, relaxed atmosphere,... More

This is a great place to sit and people watch, or take in a hot cup of your favorite brew and a delicious snack before or after a Shakespeare play. friendly staff, good background music, and shelves full of books to look at while you pass the time. very comfortable.

Great place for an early morning cup of coffee (I think they open up before any of the other shops in downtown Staunton). I particularly like the fact that they have gluten-free pastries and frequently a gluten-free soup at lunch time.

Aside from price - which, strangely, seems no longer to matter - there are four things that set a coffee shop apart from the competition: atmosphere; food; wi-fi; and the actual coffee. There are three coffee places within a city block of Staunton's main attraction - its world-class Shakespeare theatre - and I have friends who prefer Mugshots to the... More

Blue Mtn Coffee bought this place a while back, and raised the quality of the beans to what they serve at their other locations. We Like!
