Steady and reliable.

This is a good breakfast and coffee joint. The service and food quality are steady and reliable. Although open for lunch, their best fare is breakfast. If one enjoys quiet time with the newspaper, not exactly the place to go to. It's above the Spinney's Market and quite often parents with... read more

We went for supper there. The restaurant was less than half full, but ordering took 25 minutes, and a further 50 to receive the food. It was poor quality, and our burgers were cremated, dry and stale rolls. All in all I would not return as the quality was so bad. We only waited so long as we had my... More

We first used a Groupon burger deal to visit Mugg and Bean, and have been back many times since. The burgers are especially good for lunch, and if the burger meal doesn't fill you up, be sure to order one of their over-sized desserts to finish up the meal. We haven't been able to visit for breakfast, but when we... More

Have been here a couple of times and had the same thing - the meat pie/pastry and it has been amazing. Other than that, the service was good, but their wifi did not work even once.

Mugg and Bean is the gold standard of coffee shops. I’ve been coming for years and I absolutely love the atmosphere, the service and the food. As far as location goes, I prefer the one in Khalidiya above the Spinneys store, though the outlet in Abu Dhabi Mall is larger. The food is top notch and they serve a mean... More
