this place is mostly frequented by locals and college students as far as I can tell. It has some soups and sandwiches but we usually get coffee and a dessert. A place to sit, read, relax and meet students or locals.

The coffee was great, the staff friendly and the breakfast sandwich tasty. A great place to stop on your way out of town.

This is a great place to hang out, have coffee, use wi-fi. Students make use of it quite a bit. Wonderful coffee.

Visited for breakfast last weekend. Coffee was great. I ordered an everything bagel complete with sausage, egg, cheese & bacon. The service was very quick & food was great. We finished off with a warm blueberry muffin & cinnamon bun - both homemade & extremely tasty. The cafe had a great relaxed atmosphere, a great breakfast experience!

My daughter and I stopped in here after visiting Gettysburg college. We were very happy with our drinks and got gluten-free peanut butter cookies as a bonus. They were very good!

Great coffee, Great atmosphere, and the staff is extremely friendly ... Best way to the start of any day is with a coffee and a smile, both you can get here ... Prices are comparable to any other specialty cafe I have been to.

The Ugly Mug was a great stop for a quick breakfast/lunch in Gettysburg. They offer a range of menu items and have fast and friendly service. The Ugly Mug is popular (particularly among Gettysburg students) and it's clear to see why. They kindly attend to dietary restrictions and offer good alternatives. We enjoyed our veggie burgers, frappe and latte very... More

We decided to make a latte pit stop on the way home and found this coffee shop that had great reviews. Especially loved the name which we all thought was adorable. Had a vanilla latte, so creamy and so perfectly blended coffee. Definitely put Starbuck's to shame. My daughter had an iced coffee that she said was the best she... More
