Prices were reasonable , good coffee and they offer baked goods. Not much seating inside & outdoor seating faces a busy street, but not too noisy. Would return to this coffee shop again.

Dropped in for coffe and breakfast sandwiches. It was and ok experience. Seats quite a few people inside despite its small footprint. We enjoyed our eats outside on the porch. This place is convenient to Macy's if you want to do some shopping too.

We stopped at Ugly Mug Coffee before heading to Bass Pro. The coffee was delicious, and they had fun, unique flavors to choose from. I loved the funky coffee mugs and quaint atmosphere!

Love this place for their Mocha drinks! The hot chocolate is also delicious. I buy their coffee in bags to take home. The best coffee in Memphis!
