But really, it's the name of my "second home" (besides the other second homes that include bookstores and coffee shops in general!), a cafe that I never get tired of and that sits happily near UW campus. It's a very small space--yet the cozy furniture and humbling art work surrounded by the warm yellow-painted walls, the coffee drinks and meals made purely with heart, and their diverse yet soothing music make you feel like you're in your own little room...
So words like "hurry" or "rush" don't exist in this cafe. :)
Their coffee drinks are mostly what you may find in other cafes, but each drink has so much character to the way it looks that you'll find yourself admiring it almost too long before actually drinking it! Their meals include soups (my favorite of which is pumpkin tomato), sandwiches (Veggie Foccacia is the best!!), and even a breakfast plate where they give you eggs, an english muffin with a sweet creamy spread, and other delicate eats! And as for the drinks, I mostly order their Ovaltine Latte (sweet and rich) or their milky dreamy Earl Grey Tea Latte...Mmmmmmm.
If you all of a sudden find yourself in the bustling busy street of University Ave in Seattle, achingly wondering where you can get yourself the best, coziest, warmest meal of your life, just walk in the delightful aura of Ugly Mug and you let the noise of life drain out of you. :)
Happy Saturday (and Happy early Mother's Day)!
