Meet the Creator

The Ugly Cat Cafe is the brainchild of mural artist Amanda Turner.

Raised by two Marines, she has lived around the world from a very young age, eventually settling in sunny San Petersburg, Florida, and left her mark, literally, on the canvas of the urban landscape and in many places in between.

Amanda has recently traveled to Costa Rica, Guatemala, and currently lives in Ajijic, Mexico, bringing her own unique mural style to each city you encounter! She fuses her creative influences from around the world to create her own style.

Described as an "abstract adventure in color", she brings back tales from the tropics and traces of every city she has set foot in.

She invites you on this journey, to enter the world of coffee now! Having always had an eye for design and a love for hospitality, Amanda hopes to bring comfortable, relaxing, and delicious coffee to the people of Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico.
