The very best of franchise coffee shops

Okay. It's a franchise. It does coffee, so what? They all do coffee but Mugg & Bean also great food and a bottomless cup. So choose your blend, pay for one and drink as many as your digestion can handle. The food is pretty typical but the portions are generous. The milkshake was superb and the... read more

To be fair, Mugg and Bean is not known to be the most hygienic restaurant chain. However, one expects a level of hyhiene when food is served. The tables and M&G Brooklyn are sticky and the floors dirty. Staff are not really attentive nor are they bothered by the dirty state of furniture.

We visit M & B often, especially for breakfast. We love the variety and the bottomless coffee. Service is sometimes good, other times not as good. The variety on the menu is the main reason we keep coping back.

The service & quality of food at Mugg & Bean Kolonnade is the best! Every time we go to eat I gave another favorite. I love the chicken pot pie & recently discovered black & blue burgers. The tastiest burger with lots of blue cheese sauce. Delicious!! Staff are very friendly & well trained. Portions are big & food very... More

We used to go there every Friday after class for a milkshake and a muffin. They have wonderful muffins - huge and tasty! Service is friendly and not to expensive.

My friend and I were on our way to another restaurant in the mall but found Mugg and Bean so inviting that we decided to try it out. Friendly and quick service, great steaks and excellent cheesecake. We spent close to 2 hours there and decided that we would go back again at some point when I visit her in... More
