Harry Potter-inspired coffee shop opens in Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- Calling all wizards! Here's your chance to have your coffee with a side of magic.

The Coffee MUGGle, located just south of downtown Corpus Christi, is casting spells over its customers with its Harry Potter-inspired coffee shop.

Owner Susan Almaguer says she always dreamed of owning her own coffee shop, so why not combine her love for Harry Potter and coffee?

The community has also embraced the magical shop by donating many of the items in the shop like potion bottles and paintings.

Almaguer said she wanted to open a business that would be a safe place for all to hang out at without feeling judged.

"We are a place where everyone of all ages can come. Where people can comfortably sit with their friends and have a dungeons and dragons gathering and not feel judged," Almaguer told CNN. "Where a cosplayer can walk in dressed however they want and instantly feel welcomed!"

Almaguer, a single mother of two, was also inspired by her children, Emily Eva, 9, and Everett Isai, 5.

"I looked at them one day and thought, 'I want to be able to afford to take you to theme parks with my own hard-earned money,'" she said. "And it was then when I said 'that's it! I'm going to be my own boss and make my own money and do what I love in the process!"

She said the coffee shop logo was also inspired by her children.

"The coffee cup represents my daughter, she is calm and reserved and sits and observes every situation like you would when you sit and drink a cup of coffee," she said. "The lightning bolt is my son, 100% Everett, he is my rambunctious one!"

The coffee shop sells baked goods like cookies and sweet breads.
