ABOUT US


Mugs Café is a place to eat and drink without the pressure to consume and move on. Our vision is to be Argenta’s “third place.” Third places – a term coined by Ray Oldenburg in his 1989 book The Great Good Place – are informal gathering places where people in a particular neighborhood meet to develop friendships, discuss issues, and network with others.
