They offer many types of coffee and styles and also offer baked goods. There is a wifi area for reading or catching up on email in the front. The rear of the store has a small beading area to make or buy beads

We traveled to Uglie Mug everyday during our 8 day stay in Buxton. The coffee was great and the service was warm and friendly! I appreciated that they got to know us and our order after only a few days there. I liked the local "feel" of this coffee house and I appreciated that they were still open for the... More

Super cute coffee joint! Lots of beautiful, local art available for sale there as well. We only went there once because we stayed in Hatteras but if we were closer, I would have been there everyday. Staff was sweet, treats were very good!

I've been travelling to the OBX since the mid 2000's.While we have been up and down the entire stretch of the barrier islands, we spend most our time in Nags Head with friends and Avon where we stay in a beach rental. The only routine I maintain during my stay is spending an hour or so every morning with some... More

totally felt this place was lacking during an off-season visit. The coffee is better than a gas station, but the service was rude...the "barista" was more concerned with getting rid of us and talking to her friend than doing well for her employer. I do hope this young woman with dark hair and glasses wasn't the owner.

My wife used to be a Starbucks junkie. Now, she's an Ugly Mugs junkie. Forget the mocha frapacino, the cloud nine is the king of blended coffee drinks. The muffins are top notch, also. If you love coffee, you'll love this place.

Great place but if you are there to sit, forget it. 3 old men and 3 old ladies are always there and that is it. Don't bring your own seats because there is no room. This is a must take home kinda place and hope you do not spill the coffee on the way.

We stayed in Avon, NC in September and visited Uglie Mugs twice. The coffee was very good, and the muffins very tasty. The staff were all very nice and accommodating, and the atmosphere was very friendly. The outside seating areas were comfortable and you had a choice of arrangements to choose from. We will definitely stop again when in Avon.
