“Consistent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

We often visit the Mugg and Bean in the Liberty Midlands Mall, Pietermaritzburg after a morning shopping. The serving staff are very pleasant and welcoming, the menu is very varied and always of good quality. The portions are however HUGE and we often have to share the sandwiches. I feel that it would be nicer to cut the portions down (i have seen a lot of wastage and doggie bags leaving the restaurant) and therefore reduce the prices to make it easier on the pocket. Just a thought......
We will go back...

“What happened to the muffins?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

When we visit South Africa we always visit the Mugg and Bean and share a muffin between us. The muffins are huge and they use to have a lot of filling. We ordered a blueberry muffin and when we cut it, it did not have hardly any blueberrys. We asked the waitress and she said that they use crushed blueberrys.The Pavillion Westville was busy but the staff were polite- shame about the muffins!!

“Not that good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

The oversized muffins are ok, a bit dry. The theme is a bit tired. Staff are good and friendly. Overall ok if you want a quick snack

“Efficient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

The service is great, greeted with a smile at the door. A waiter is immediately introduced. Food arrives quickly. One leaves with the impression that these guy are organised and are serious about what they do.
