Very efficient staff and quality food. Muffins are big and ask for a big cup of coffee its worth it. When ever I want to impress a girl I meet at the Mugg and Bean.

Within 4 days, we had 2 lunches at Mugg and Bean, Midlands Mall. The service was excellent, the food fantastic and the restaurant spotless. I have had a Chinese noodle chicken salad many times in Johannesburg too, but this takes first prize. I asked for the bowl sized portion ( which is big enough if you are not too hungry),... More

Friendly staff, efficient service and tasty food. They make a heavenly cuppa. I always order their vegetarian meals and have never once been disappointed.

She was such a pleasant waitress and took orders correctly. Thank you once again Jenny. The food was delicious and well prepared, thanks to the guys from the kitchen. We always... More

I have been to Mugg and Bean several dozen times over the past two months. Their food is always very good quality with generous portion sizes. Their coffee and other beverages are excellent. Their cakes are baked on the premises and are world class. Whether you live locally or need a good place to eat while traveling, I strongly recommend... More

Mugg & Bean is always good value for money. The standard is good and the coffee delicious. What used to be a beautiful place with water features, trees, grass and singing birds outside the restaurant is now built in and features a merry-go-round which is noisy and, to be polite, not very pleasant. Because of that I tend not to... More

Ordered lunch for two people with drinks. Drinks arrived however meals didn't. In the space of an hour, the waitress Jenny came to our table twice, assuring us that our meals were on there way. When we were tired of waiting, she fumbled with the bill and mumbled on about the managers not assisting us... Poor service all round.
