The Mugs, a cozy coffee shop tucked in the corner of Golden Springs Plaza in Diamond Bar, has become my new favorite spot for studying or chatting over caffeinated beverages.
Being a college student, I am always on the lookout for spacious and well-lit spaces to study off campus, which is why I’m thankful I stumbled upon The Mugs. This shop has free wi-fi, ample seating and a great selection of drinks, pastries, sandwiches and desserts.
The natural sunlight from the open windows and the chill background music created a very calming ambience, perfect for sparking productivity and focus.
My friend and I both ordered earl gray lattes with oat milk. I would’ve preferred the earl gray to have a stronger taste and be less milky, but it was still delicious and refreshing. Their menu also features a good tea selection, with unique options like sencha, passionfruit jasmine and french lemon ginger.
We sat at a communal table, secluded in the corner of the shop, so we could focus on our projects. The only flaw was that the entire table only had one wall outlet.
I highly recommend visiting The Mugs, the next time you’re craving a tea latte or need a place to study.
