While the coffee and the service was as would be expected, my breakfast was possibly the worst omelet I've ever had the misfortune to experience. Either the mixture was watered down or they use the yolks for the Hollandaise in their Benedicts since it tasted...like (and even looked similar to) an egg white omelet. Won't be visiting this branch again!More

Hi A meeting with four at the Mugg today. Great coffees, super service and their apple cake nearly had me coming back for seconds! Very well done and thanks J

Well established and now have an additional outlet for those on the go with street front entrance. Portions are generally huge and service good. Bottomless coffee is a real treat for those doing some work with WiFi available.

Love Mugg and Bean. Chicken mayo toasted sandwich is lovely! Fantastic strawberry milkshake and would have again. Not so keen on the rosemary chips.

We stopped by for a quick sandwich and coffee. I ordered a toasted chicken and mayo sandwich which was cold on arrival. Taste was ok but a bit too much mayo applies. Bottomless coffee went down well. A bit disappointing.

A waiter sat me a a table and I immediately ordered a Coke delivered quickly. Ordered food and arrived after a very long time cool not hot. The toast had an odd sweet taste to the butter, the potato thing was awful as were the...chips. Food was served on a 'metal' skillet I assume to keep the food warm? It was cold. Never asked once if all good or if I needed anything else.More

The coffee is awesome and affordably priced, the staff members are awesome with someone checking every now and then if you are comfortable.

A busy restaurant with a lot of time for wait . Not a fast food chain but restaurant lacks the basics of quick menus and and seating. Service :- Order taking was ok then handed over to a second person. Energetic waitress and was a...friendly person with a flair for service . Saw the restaurant busy while the manger just stood not participating. Food :- Thé omelettes and the corn fritters were the saving grace. Priced ok. The bacon ( 2strips ) priced too high BILLING :- 2/3 a price of a steak for the 2 strips of bacon . Manager informed and was kind to promise to take off the bill but the to our amazement got the bill with the prices for bacon included. Upon pointing it out the waitress was apologetic and got the manger involved . The amount was removed off the bill. Hick ups do happen but things went wrong one after the other beyond point of no salvation . It’s a no go restaurant for us. Enjoyed the same chain of restaurant at Brooklyn ( Pretoria ) and Abu Dhabi ( Mushriff mall and Kalifa city- Etihad Plaza)More

Very friendly staff and the coffee was good too. The muffins are HUGE and enough for two. Free refills on lemonade was a nice surprise.

The standard in Mug & Bean outlets is consistently good - a clear indication that quality process have been established, staff trained to those standards, and are continually met. Not only is the coffee good, but so is the service and food. Particularly breakfast.
