Mugs Cafe drop-in Thursday in Argenta

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2013 at 3:03 PM


The Church at Argenta has begun work to put a coffee shop, Mugs Cafe, at 515 Main St., next door to the Argenta Market and is having a drop-in from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, April 4, for coffee and menu samples. Among the offerings: "Thanksgiving on a roll," a turkey and cranberry slider; and a smoked salmon and avocado club sandwich.

The full cafe menu — described as tentative on the website — includes coffee in all its iterations as well as frappucinos, breakfast foods, gelato, wraps, smoothies and more. A July opening is planned. The cafe has a Facebook page to check for updates.

Also on the menu: Church. The Church at Argenta, which is Southern Baptist with a twist, since all denominations are welcome, will eventually meet at the coffee shop. Michael Carpenter, "church planter," said "we're not going to be overt ... but we're not going to be covert, either."

A statement on the cafe from the church webpage:

It is so easy for us to withdraw to the comfortable confines of our Christian sub-culture. But that is not the example Jesus set. He crossed every conceivable demographic and line. By building a coffeehouse, we will be able to create a place where connections will happen week in and week out. We can only image how many people will walk into Mugs Café to get a cup of coffee and end up finding a church.

For more information, call 615-477-8854. Carpenter also sends this link to the food blog Fancy Pants Foodie on the cafe.
