This week’s Feature Friday is a place where you’ll not only find a great cup of coffee, but good company and good conversation as well! The Ugly Mug on Market Street in Poughkeepsie is an awesome local space where people can come together. With a wide selection of locally sourced coffee, tea, and snacks, and a welcoming, cheery staff, it’s hard to not enjoy yourself. On top of serving great food and drinks they do things like hosting Coffee of a Cause fundraisers, and Yappy Hour, a time where dogs can socialize, have a play date, explore a new space and for dog owners to hang out, relax and make new friends. If you have never been to the Ugly Mug, you’re definitely missing out. “We hope to be a place of gathering for our neighborhood — a positive, encouraging local space where folks can come together for good company and good conversation. We’re putting our money where our heart is, and we can’t thank our patrons enough for all their love and support.”
