“Better than Starbucks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

From light flavored to robust & strong there are options for any coffee lover. And, you don't have to say grande or venti! Better yet, you don't have to pay the extra star"BUCKS"

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

We hit the drive thru for a quick cup at work. Staff very conscientious about us getting exactly what we wanted. They have many, many varieties, roasts, and drink choices. Great find!

“Quality service, fresh pastries, good coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

I have been coming to the Ugly Mug a couple times a week since moving here a year ago and have to confess, this is a really cool, eclectic coffee shop. Liz the manager knows every regular, if not by name, then most definitely by the type of drink ordered. I counted twenty-one different types of coffee, beans ground fresh for each pot. It's an art watching them carefully create an espresso drink. Coffee, espresso, tea, pastries.
I also have to comment about the way Mackenzie makes their pastries, cookies, muffins, and scones - bar none, the best I've ever tasted. My son orders the quiche. That they got my son to enjoy broccoli alone is worth noting.
In fact, freshness is one of the cornerstone's the owner has instilled upon the entire staff. I'm not a fan of tea but they have an entire cabinet of choices. Bagels are delivered fresh daily from Joey's down the street, the homemade cream cheese is portioned out and the cups are dated. The smoothies are made with fresh puree and the even added Greek yogurt to mine today. The frappe mixes are prepared as you wait, and the little extras like Wi-Fi, clean CLEAN bathrooms - makes this one-of-a-kind coffee shop worth it.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Have been here several times. Ok place but they ALWAYS expect a tip. They push it down your throat. They always have good looking girls to lean out the window to deliver your drink. I probably wont be back. Food is just ok. Atmosphere is good.
