Enjoy our visits here regularly, especially the bottomless coffee and lemon meringue. The service is always friendly and prompt, the place is clean and the atmosphere relaxed. The menu caters to all meals and snacks in between. We'll be back!

A wonderful place for simply coffee or even huge meals. The portions are very generous and the menu has a huge variety to choose from that it is difficult at times to pick. The staff are always friendly and management regularly checks in with you to see if you are enjoying yourself.

We feel that Liberty Mall Mugg and Bean serves the best breakfast. The bottomless coffee option combined with the On the Go breakfast is our favourite breakfast. The food is of a consistently high standard, the staff are efficient and friendly and Brad du Toit, the manager is always ready for a chat, a smile and a friendly greeting. This... More

Although part of a chain and we found in most towns it as a small place feel. The service was very good and we enjoyed our meal and the good selection of coffee.

The Mugg & Bean brand is, as always hugely successful no matter where it is. This particular restaurant is good, it's however situated within a busy and understandably very noisy shopping mall. If you'd like to have a quiet coffee, then this isn't the place to go to.

Nice food, ok service but overpriced for what is on offer. Coffee is decent though...for SAfrica! Service slow and somewhat slap dash.

The usual massive portions at mugg & bean...a newly discovered habanero chilli sauce that is great if you like a robust and full 'bite' of chilli. I would suggest this to anyone who wants to sit down after a little shopping. Go for the salads! D
