The store offers a wealth of tempting choices and unique gifts, much of it locally produced and all of it stylish with a country music feel and a “Nashville” flair! There’s even an Urban Hillbilly Bead and Leather Bar where patrons can create their arm candy to their own hearts’ content. Stop in to shop; sip on a margarita; and meet Melissa, Mignon’s owner. Trust us—the neat boutique will become one of your favorite places in town.

Crown Cigars also offers a year-round military discount for active-duty soldiers. But whether soldier or civilian, all are welcome to watch some football or talk some business while enjoying the finest cigars and ales and Austin’s unmatched service. Also on hand are great gifts, a variety of humidors, custom pens, lighters, cutters and pipes.
