New Kid in Town

There's a new kid in town.  A new coffee shop.  It's called Mug Shots.  The co-owner is married to a law enforcement type dude.  Get it?
The space is very cool and completely redone by owners Corrina and Rob.  It has had several "personalities" over the years and we're all lovin' this one - a lot!

There's Corrina now.  Hi, Corrina!  She's getting ready to pour me a cup and serve up one of her fabu scones.  I've had scones before and it wasn't love at first bite but these scones - way different.  I have to stop myself from gobbling them up - remember my experience at Stephens College for women; I know better.

This seating area is in the front of Mug Shots.  I like sitting there because I can keep an eye on the comings and goings of town.  Those people need watching and I'm the gal that can do it.

And . . . . . you can buy your own beans.  Take 'em home and grind to your heart's content.

Unless you order one of Mug Shots' fancy drinks, this is where you fill up.  There's always at least 3 yummy coffees to pick from.  I thought it was a good idea to personalize one of the pictures with local color.  That's Keith - filling up.  Hi, Keith!

There's also a back room.  How cool, eh?  Comfy.

AND - we're still not done.  They've thought of everything, I tell ya.  Bring your 'puter and plug in.  Check your email, cruise the porn sites blog sites, like mine. hehe

These tables are set up directly across from the computer area I just showed you.  This is where I usually hang with my "coffee peeps."  We gather on Wednesday mornings and solve the problems of the world or how to deal with hot flashes.  That's a world problem, isn't it?

Same area filled with brilliant ladies.  Except, of course, I'm not there.  Someone has to take the picture, ok?

Mug Shots is a wonderful and welcome addition to Allegan.  If you're in the area, stop in and have a cuppa cuppa.  Oh, and the sandwiches are great, too.  And - they stay open after 5p.  What a novel idea, eh?


  1. Now that looks like a great space for downtown Allegan. I will definitely give that a try on my next visit. I recognize some of those brilliant ladies, perhaps I will pop in and join you once in a while!

  2. Hmmm, looks VERY familiar. Great post, Ellen. : )

  3. Marilyn - we would love to have you drop in - anytime.

  4. We concur! It's wayyyyy past time for a good coffee shop in Allegan. Seems like Water Street could become the "Happening" place in town!
