Urban dictionary defines ugly mug as a face that is undisputedly ugly and resembles that of a mug or cup. However, head to 418 Milton Road Brisbane and you will most likely run into Mikey. Now I just want to make it clear that I'm not implying anything. After all it wasn't me who named his shop.
Anyway, I have know Mikey for over twelve years, his wife is an old friend and back in the day we all met in a pub (of course) just by Old Street station in London. Unfortunately Renee's visa had expired and so she had to move back to Brisbane. Mikey understandably joined her shortly.
Mikey open Ugly Mug coffee shop almost ten years ago and I was beyond ecstatic to finally visit. This was well overdue and let me tell you it didn't disappoint. I missed Mikey's sarcasm and witty banta and the espresso was strong but tasty. I even got the VIP treatment with home made sourdough that was absolutely divine. The regulars I met as I drank my morning cup were all friendly and chatty. So if you are in the area I highly recommend you stop by, if you are lucky Billie (their beautiful dog) might also be about. Fingers crossed it won't take me so long to head back for another cup of coffee!
