“coffee & tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2011

This shop has a wonderful informal atmosphere. I don't drink much coffee, but the owner seems to be a master of "tea knowledge." It is an education to talk to her, and to take away some of the many kinds of tea she offers...

“What a coffee shop should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2010

I have spent enough time in coffee shops both in the US and Europe to know a good one. This is what Starbucks tries to be, but can't. It has great coffee, great staff, great food (coffee shop food, bagels, pastries, muffins, etc.) and an atmosphere that welcomes you the second you walk in the door. Be advised that the location next to a tattoo parlor is a bit different than one might expect, but don't let it deter you. The place has some nice booths, tables, and a living room type of area that reminds me of my grandmother's house, complete with crocheted afgans. They have a strong wifi signal and the booth's have easy access power supplies.

The owner, Leatha Schulze has done an amazing job of turning a strip mall corner into a fantastic local gem. They even have a drive through (thus the corner location). The local employees are super friendly and helpful. In a perfect world, an Ugly Mug would be a block or two from my house and every hotel where I stay. Fortunately for the people in the Hendersonville, NC area, there is only one.
