“OK coffee shop not a restaurant”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Mugg and bean is a coffee shop chain that serves good coffee and very mediocre and uninspired food, its ok for a toasted sandwich or a quick breakfast but little else.

On the plus side most of them have free Wi-Fi

“Large portions of comfort food”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

If you want something uncomplicated, and are hungry; then M&B is the place for you. A varied many with many choices. Whatever you order, the portions will be large, the salad sometimes overwhelms the rest of the plate - but it is always tasty and nice. Kids are welcomed, but generally are better behaved than at the chain that provides a play-area for the kids.

“Cafe Home in JoBurg”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

I can't review all restaurants I've been in JoBurg as I was a resident of. But Mugg & Bean takes a special place. Whenever and wherever we've been to a M&B, we left happy and full and satisfied. Great fresh food, almost best cappuccino in town, nice staff, good managers. Children friendly restaurants like Broadacres are best.
I can say that people of the south are so lucky they have Mugg & Bean.
