I had the house avo toast and hash. My meal was good, but I can't say it was worth $16. $1.50 upcharge to swap the side of fruit for the hash, even though the hash is cheaper than the fruit on the menu.Not quite sure I understand that. It was also unseasoned and could've at least used some salt. The toast was pretty good though and was made with fresh ingredients. More...
By far the best place on the beach. Great coffee, awesome fresh food, and really friendly service. Go here!!

Excellent service, absolutely killer muffins
Great little find in Jax Beach- the grilled cheese, which is a cheese lovers dream, with the muffin was a great twist. Great peanut butter latte!
Very delicious nice vegan options, smaller portions, very welcoming atmosphere.. worth it $$
First time here. The food was fresh and fantastic. We will be back.
The best pork bell hash! The muffins so moist!
Best breakfast I’ve ever had hands down, fresh ingredients, muffin are AMAZING gluten free and vegan options you can’t go!!!
A quiet, quaint, and delicious breakfast/brunch spot. Welcoming staff and great coffee. A definite Jacksonville Beach destination.
The simple start was petty good. Just wish it came with butter or jam.
Love their huge muffins! Nice people cool space. Their coffee is good too!
The picturesque location , especially the view from second floor. Very cozy, has vegetarian and vegan menu options and coffee .
Delicious food, unique flavors, and an extensive menu! Looking forward to my next visit!
What an awesome hidden gem. I got the avocado toast with ricotta and the homemade bread was amazing! It was a cross between a muffin and an English muffin. The red expresso was a delicious drink. The muffins were flavorful and a perfect consistency, even the gluten free. Most things are made in house and if they aren't they are locally sourced. They offer vegan options as well. The owner was super friendly and seemed to truly take pride in her business and menu items. I would definitely recommend this place! More...
This has to be one of the most hidden gems of Jacksonville Beach! I wish there were more Ugly Cupcake Muffinrys & Cafe closer to the St Johns River! The menu screams with great combinations! This place has it all - friendly staff, great atmosphere, generous portions and affordable pricing! I sincerely appreciate them catering to my tomato allergy...the owner was courteous and kind to stop by and inquiry about our visit....All I had to say is I will be back...got to try that duck...or....pork belly Will let you know....and of course I tryed the MUFFIN...blueberry...just the way it has to be made...overloaded with sweet blueberries!! YUM More...
This place is a excellent experience. They have a good sized menu, including vegetarian and vegan options. The service was fantastic- lots of kind, smiling faces. The food was delicious! Everything was fresh. The Expresso drinks were the best I've had in Jax, hands down. More...
Chef Ivy puts out some of the best food at jax beach. Great views of the ocean from the top floor. Very reasonabally priced. She has a great tea selection as well More...
Perfect for a morning snack and coffee! The gluten free blueberry muffin was delicious and the iced coffee was delicious for my morning walk. They also have a little sit down area to enjoy hot breakfast. The location has a nice quirky front garden across from a little park with benches to sit and listen to the ocean! Very pleasant experience. More...
Loses one star for never begging open when I'm craving it. Don't let the name for you, they are beautiful and some healthy options like quinoa and kale
a beautiful house, fresh and good food
great food and atmosphere! accommodating to food allergies!
Food was great!
The jumbo lump blue crab was fantastic over the benidect hash
I'm so glad we decided to visit here for Mother's Day brunch! There was an extensive menu, including a made-to-order egg station (chicken eggs or vegan), biscuit bar, fresh fruit, salad, avocado toast and more! Each buffet came with a drink and muffin. In addition, there was a cotton candy machine for the kids to enjoy.The service was perfect! Everyone was so nice and everything seemed to be running smoothly.I've been a few times before today's visit and the food and service has always been perfect. Definitely a place to try if you haven't already!! More...
Muffins are great, but don't be in a hurry. This place is popular and very busy.
Finally got out to this place. Amazing food and the place is super cool and cozy in an old house. The owner is very welcoming and nice. Definitely my new breakfast spot!!
Love this placeGreat muffins & the duck sandwich is delicious

We loved the food!! The service and scenery are amazing!!
Located in a plantation style house on a side street in Jacksonville Beach, this is an unusual place for lunch, very close to the beach. It’s main claim to fame seems to be it’s muffins. I had scrambled eggs over hash Greek style, i.e. with feta cheese and spinach. However it was not corned beef hash which I was expecting, just home fries under the scrambled eggs. At $13.00 I though this was a little on the expensive side compared to other local eateries. More...
One of our favorite places at the beach! The food is amazing! The service is great! The owner is a sweetheart. We get the Mexican scrambled over hash. Omg is it good! If you want a beautiful view and some great food, this is your place! More...
Was highly recommended and did not disappoint. Within walking distance of the beach. Friendly staff gave great recommendations after taking the time to find our what we liked. Food presentation and atmosphere were perfection and the perfect way to start off a beach day. We will highly recommend as well now! More...
Favorite breakfast spot at the beach! The specialty coffee’s are amazing and the food is always perfectly prepared!! Awesome atmosphere with great view of the ocean!
Such a Gem ! This is such a cute, local place you have to experience. The Avocado Sandwich was mouth-watering. You have to try the The Frozen Caramel Latte w/ coffee as the base. Definitely will be back
Wonderful people beautiful location
Love this place. Small, local business with great food & service. Also, right in the beach with amazing views while relaxing on the porch.
Amazing spot. Healthy food made quickly. Almost always too much food for one person!

They're doing my wedding, melts in you mouth
My friend Bob Lumby and I went here from Breakfast. The staff is very very nice, fun, upbeat. The atmosphere is perfect for those of us trying to wake up. The coffee was great, the Eggs Benedict classic was fantastic. Great view if the upstairs veranda isn't wet from rain. Don't miss this place. More...
A great little gem. Love the atmosphere and the food. We drive quite abit just to there in weekends and holidays and after it take a walk on the beach. Highly recommended.
Those are some fantastic muffinsA very nice family run business in a house, packed with many choices including vegan options, and a mission to give you the freshest experience possible.
Delicious fresh food, amazing coffee, breathtaking views! Well worth our 4-hour drive to try it!
The food was fabulous and the service was great. I love the old house, it is beautiful.
I love the flavours and options are amazing. The people are great. Everything is so fresh.
I met my husband at The Ugly Cupcake for lunch. What an amazing experience! The BLT on a gluten free muffin was to die for! Awesome. We sat upstairs with a view of the ocean and thoroughly enjoyed our time in the beautiful home that is The Ugly Cupcake. Chef Ivy makes delicious foods for all tastes - she even has vegan goodies. I highly recommend this local gem. More...
Certainly tasty and unique foods. Good hash and crab muffinwich and coconut cold brew. Great atmosphere too in a cozy little house with beach views. Quite expensive though.
Best breakfast and lunch in Jax... amazing coffee. Customer service is beyond fantastic- grey to see a small business that truly values their customers. Don’t pass them by! Best way to start my morning! More...
Adorable breakfast cafe in an old home just a block from the beach. Perfect place to get a little work done, with good food and great customer service.
This was such a fun cafe! It is on a quiet street and from the balcony you can see the ocean. The prices were very reasonable and everything was fresh and delicious! I also liked that I left full, but not stuffed. The muffins were indeed ugly, but so amazingly good, I didn't have to look at it long. I would recommend this place for a week day brunch due to the lack of street parking available, it would probably have been a bit of a headache to get to this place on a Sunday morning... But it would be worth it ;-) More...
I love the Ugly Cupcake! We like to stop in on the weekends early during our morning dog walk and grab a couple muffins and coffee to go. Sometimes we sit at the tables out front with the pup and eat and enjoy the fresh air and surprisingly quiet spot. I love trying all the different kinds but I always come back to the blueberry! Yum! More...
I heard the guy up front on Sundays is cool. Muffins are huge.
Love the little goodies here :)
Food and coffees are DELICIOUS! The owner is super sweet as well. Love it there.
Food was great.
Love, love, LOVE this place. The food is amazing and the owner is such a doll. 10/10
Good food .... Just be aware if you are using a Local Flavor coupon they have a menu just for that coupon...but all in all great food..
One of my favorite cafes. I love their muffins and mac & cheese!
Excellent food and service, true local gem.
The best breakfast, brunch and salads on the beach. Truly fresh food. Great service. Place is super clean.
Great local food, great views, environmentally conscious - using no straws!
So delicious neat place near the ocean
Cute spot with good food! Their johns hash will always be a favorite.
Thoughtful, delicious, fresh food. Wonderful service. Inviting atmosphere. I cannot recommend this place more highly!!!Gluten free and vegan friendly :)
What a cute little place across the street from the beach! They do serve omelets and non-muffin food, if like me you're avoiding gratuitous carbs. But the muffins looked amazing.
I feel like a better person after eating here! The avocado toast, yum yum!
super fun atmosphere and yummy food make this place well worth a visit
Fantastic venue for a relaxing morning coffee. My only complaints are that the staff is delightfully unpleasant and the food is too delicious.
The Ugly Cupcake Muffinry features amazing made from scratch breakfast and lunch items such as muffin benedict, muffinwitches, toasts, soups and salads. Open from 7am-3pm, my favorite part is that the restaurant is inside a two story house that blends in with the surrounding beach neighborhood.Try a "Bruffin", their famous breakfast sandwich with 1 egg over medium or scrambled, together with various options like turkey sausage, cheddar jack, tomato, onion.What really surprised me was their potato hash. The "Kai's Hash", which comes with cheesy hash potatoes, chorizo, peppers, jalapeños, onions, and hot sauce can only be described as a flavor explosion with every bite! More...
Great food, amazing desserts, one of our favorite Beach stops.
Great location, family owned and run. One of my favorite spots at the beach !
awesome food, great service. love to study here.
So fresh, delicious, friendly staff and beautiful view of the beach!
Great food. Great people. And great atmosphere.
Fresh, tasty, and AWESOME!!! Great options for gluten-free as well!!!
Food was good but the biscuit somewhat overwhelmed the sandwich. Place is cute and you can eat outside on a nice day. 1 minute walk to the beach. Don't use the restroom unless you have to. Hopefully they will renovate it soon. More...
Thank you Uber Eats for introducing me to this place!! Finally somewhere I can get a yummy healthy salad with great ingredients and my fiancé can get a 3 meat sandwich and both of us are very satisfied. The coffee selection is divine too
I really like the location, the coffee, and the owner. The Peanut Butter Latte is delicious. It sometimes feels a little hectic and chaotic, though, making it a tough place to relax compared to a Southern Grounds. I would advise that the little shop consider better remote working opportunities for people who like to work in coffee shops. With such an awesome location, it's a no-brainer. More...
Them muffins are called ugly cupcakes but taste better then any cupcake I ever had
Loved the vegan options. Really cute house.
Delicious, healthy, clean food. Get there early before the Gluten Free Muffins are gone!!!! Always a new flavor, and always to die for!!!
I love this place, its great for breakfast and has a great view. I recommend getting a bruffin. But don't let the name fool you there are no cupcakes here just delicious muffins and Nitrogen coffee, which if you haven't tried you should!
Awesome place...breakfast was excellent and unique choices...coffee was incredible. Looks like a beach house...outside service faces the ocean
I stumbled upon this wonderful little cafe while searching "breakfast places near me". I would never have found it on my own. The woman whe helped us with our order and deluvered our food was very helpful and so nice. I ordered a benedicty style entree. It was amazing. Homemade biscut with avacado, fresh tomato and homemade hollandaise...heaven. crazy good latte too. Check it out! More...
Absolutely adore this place! Everything is delicious and my friends and I love to come here and hang out!
Great food and service:)
Cutest place ever!! My favorite spot i found while in vacation!!
Love this quaint cafe nestled in a small enclave of Jacksonville Beach, in a beautiful vintage charming building, I thoroughly enjoyed the ocean views sitting on the patio on the second floor. There is downstairs seating as well inside and ou tside. I look forward to visiting this wonderful cafe every time I am in Town! I Love the fresh food, muffins and coffee! One of my favorite dishes is the Maryland crab Benedict, best hollandaise sauce ever! I highly recommend giving the Ugly Cupcake Muffinry a try! More...
Right next to an art garden and beach access, the cafe is a great location for a delicious meal and beach day. Beyond several daily muffin flavors, they offer full and filling meals and a long menu of beverage options.
The ugly cupcake is the perfect place!!! Great food, perfect service, and it’s right next to the beach!! It’s so cute and fun. I’ve never had a bad experience. You can have your dog outside and it is my favorite place to eat. You gotta try it. It’s a power move. It’s the only move. More...
literally the best place to get breakfast at the beach! exceptional muffins and everything on the menu sounds/is delicious. wonderfully friendly staff, definitely worth a visit!! More...
Best little Cafe on Beach! Balcony seating for older children and adults. The food is made to order with fresh, many organic ingredients! The staff are wonderful! The Chef is AMAZING!!
The Views? Indescribable! More...
This is a nice, cozy place to take a break from the sun and waves at Jacksonville Beach. I expected a simple bakery with baked goods and such, but it’s actually a full café with lots of light but filling options for breakfast and lunch. I got a breakfast sandwich (called a Bruffin here) with eggs and sautéed veggies, and it was excellent - the bread was perfectly fluffy and buttery, and it came with the most fresh side of fruit I’ve ever had at a restaurant. It tasted like they picked them right out of the backyard. The price is definitely high for what you get - I paid $12 for a small breakfast sandwich with fruit and a drink - but the atmosphere, friendly service, and overall quality make it worth the visit. However, try and plan ahead, because we showed up around 2:00 and they were sold out of most of their meats, and the muffin selection was limited. More...
Very good food. Great tea and coffee selection. Gluten free and vegan options. Indoor as well as outdoor seating to enjoy the ocean breeze.
This place is amazing! The service was wonderful. They have a great menu with tons of options. With that being said, We did not know what to order. Ivy (gave us top notch customer service and had a great personality) helped us and recommended the best food for each of my group. Our food was so delicious and the muffins are amazing! Love love love this place. More...
Extremely warm and comfy place to have some breakfast or lunch. Feels like a nice "home" style cafe atmosphere that I just love. Service was on point and the food was absolutely decadent. More...
I loved this place! Delicious food! Great atmosphere! This was the protein breakfast, I highly highly recommend it. And of course the muffins are FANTASTIC. Go here. Even if you aren't sure just go. It's so worth it!! More...
The Ugly Cupcake Muffinry is the perfect morning spot. Located across 1st St from the beach and next to a park filled with statues made by UNF students, it has great views.
The restaurant is located downstairs in a concerted house and has beautiful wood floors and simple decor. They also offer indoor, outdoor, and patio seating so you can get just the right spot.
Now the food...Ivy makes the best muffins. Not too sweet but full of flavor and a little smaller than your head, which is definitely the right size. Her daily specials are worth a look, we went with the shrimp and grits and pulled pork breakfast sandwich. I have also had the chance to try her grilled cheese, the cheese oozed out and covered the entire plate! Most of the options comes on a version of an unsweetened muffin, kind of like an English muffin but better.
They also have coffee. So many delicious choices. Ask the staff for advice, they have tried it all and know the menu well. The won't lead you astray. More...
Huge muffins. Lots of options on the menu. Very friendly staff. Great spot to grab a laid back breakfast.
I had the avocado toast $8 which was delicious. The bread part was in the smaller side, I asked for greens/lettuce to be added which made it perfect.. I also got a cinnamon muffin gf, which was totally worth the $4.50 they are enormous. The owner was very lovely and the entire restaurant was spotless. It was a nice experience, I did feel like the avocado toast was a little over priced at $8. More...
This place is amazing! Delicious food. Lots of veggie options and very friendly staff. Ivy is great!
Everyone is super nice here. If you are in the area, you should give it a try for breakfast. The menu has great options, and the pricing is ok for the view that comes with the meal. Try the savory muffins, you'll change your whole way of thinking for muffins More...
Food awesome , unique and fresh
The food is one of a kind and the variety is incredible! It's definitely catered towards a more mature crowd so keep this in mind when planning a family outing - kids are welcome but there are limited accommodations - but for a lunch date or study group the atmosphere is perfect. The weekends are understandably busy with the season but the food is either quick to come or given with a heartfelt apology and occasionally a free muffin for the extreme cases. All in all a great cafe for someone looking for a unique local flavor! More...
HUGE muffins that are SO yummy!
Great secret, fast or sit down breakfast spot
在楼上户外就餐，食品挺好看的但是味道平平 据说蛋糕好吃 但是我吃不下了 冰咖啡味道很好。
Terrific place for coffee and breakfast.
Wish I had discovered this place a year ago when they opened! Such a charming and adorable house. We were greeted with a friendly face today who explained their menu to us in the front foyer. I chose the avocado toast combo and it exceeded my expectations. The muffin it was served on was pure perfection. There were so many delicious and unique things on the menu I'm sworn to go back and try them all. Our drinks were fabulous as well. All five of us loved our meals and could have sat back and relaxed inside for the better part of the day. Five stars! More...
Very convenient to Oceanfront Park, excellent coffee and muffins. Price a bit steep.
Super cute place, lovely staff, GIGANTIC muffins with new flavors every day. Lots of variety in the menu. Unique, fun atmosphere, will definitely be back.
Super cute place with great outdoor seating. Really loved their bruffin sandwich.
I just went to The Ugly Cupcake Muffinry for the first time. I've been meaning to go for awhile. Boy, have I been missing out! Such a unique concept & fresh, delicious ingredients! It's such a cute atmosphere too! The food came out super fast, but I could imagine relaxing for a leisurely brunch or lunch. I went by myself with my baby & the entire staff was so helpful & accommodating!! I will definitely be back & I encourage locals & visitors to check this place out! Thank you to everyone at The Ugly Cupcake Muffinry for the awesome food & being so pleasant!! More...
Located in a two story house is a hidden gem. Make it your Saturday morning breakfast spot,sit in the garden or the balcony. Ask Chef owner Ivy how this place got it's name. Pet and kid friendly More...
Such a calm and peaceful place to eat and a very friendly staff. The food was delicious and the coffee was very good, you should try the peanut butter latte. The only reason it's not 5 stars is there was mold on the blueberries in my side fruit salad, which can happen anywhere even in my own home, so I didn't even say anything. I will go back, maybe even next week. More...
One of my favorites! The menu is normally posted on Facebook the day of with specials- which are always great. The coffee (I'm fond of the iced vanilla latte with almond milk) is good, my kids love the muffins & fruit. We love coming here for brunch.
Such friendly staff and amazing location/house is beautiful. Food is good and great coffee! I liked the muffin sandwich (different from most breakfast meals)
The best muffins I've ever tasted. They are fresh and you can tell. Nice little place to grab a quick bite to eat. It is small onside though.
This place makes these unique breakfast sandwiches called bruffins. It is an egg sandwich on a cross between a muffin top and English muffin. Great cheddar jack cheese, Canadian bacon, veggies, and sides of fruit. The coffee is great too! More...
Joanna Franklin Bell
FANTASTIC!! Not to be missed whether you're living at Jacksonville Beach or just traveling through. Muffins like you've never tasted before, plus the whole rest of the menu that makes you want to keep coming back until you've tried it all.
Great atmosphere, prime location, and always stocked with unique tasty muffins that are sure to delight. The staff are warm and welcoming and the coffee is brewed to perfection. A must for any muffin enthusiast.
Super friendly environment! Try the nitro coffee.
Loved it!!! From the coffee to the food to the atmosphere everything was amazing!
Friendly staff and lovely beach views from the balcony. Great place to have breakfast!
