When it opens in early August, Ugly Mug will serve coffee from local roastery Passion House Coffee Roasters along with sweet and savory croissants and breakfast sandwiches. Lunch options will include a shaved roast beef sandwich with white cheddar and a Almost Cuban sandwich with ham, cheddar and pickled jalapenos. Owner Mik Wright also plans to serve cake by the slice until 10 p.m. for the coffee-and-dessert crowd. Located in a rehabbed building dating to the 1890s, the long skinny space features a bar made from reclaimed wood where you can sit and chat with your barista. There are also two- and three-seat tables and armchairs for laptoppers soaking up free wifi or dates listening to live music; Wright hopes to start bringing in small acoustic acts this fall. A dog-friendly backyard patio with street access is also in the works.
