Very small inside, so limited seating. Many varieties of drinks and of course several varieties of coffee too! Bagels, pastries, etc. Wi-fi available for a small fee.

While this is not up to the level of a big city coffee shop, this is fine for a small town and pretty much your only choice in town.

I often visit family in the area and make sure I stop at 1 of the 3 (I believe Hidden Valley Lake is now closed down) Mugshot locations for one of the several enticing flavors of fraps! Wifey always gets the coffee and loves it too. There are numerous flavors to choose from i.e.: Milky Way, Mexican Mocha etc. Very... More

Stopped here on a car journey to grab a quick coffee. It was great tasting and the service was friendly, The whole area is suffering after the recent fire and we were glad to be able to support the locals at this time. Everyone is suffering. Everyone was friendly. And the coffee was wonderful! Go support these people in Middletown!

Mugshots offers quick and good beverages and sweets, but the service makes the whole experience much more enjoyable. It draws many from the community together, but welcomes the outsider as well.

Wide variety of good quality drinks. They'll do anything from espresso shots to fancy frappes, and everything I've had is great. The snacks (cookies, muffins, etc.) are nothing special though. The staff is always friendly and pleasant. Tight (almost cramped) interior. Three comfortable booths and two small, round tables. Magazines (New Yorker, Rolling Stone, etc.), and free WiFi. Popular with... More
