The Ugly Mug is the original local Memphis coffee shop and coffee roasters. If you’re a Memphian and you like coffee, this is where you get your coffee. If you’re looking for a great local alternative to the Green Mermaid from Seattle, then swing by the Ugly Mug Coffee shop at Poplar and Perkins to get a latte or a bag of high quality locally roasted coffee.
The original Ugly Mug was a cavernous hangout near the University of Memphis campus full of used couches. The new location is a former drive through Fox Photo film developing kiosk. Its compact with a couple of bistro tables and a bar, but the legacy of great local coffee lives
