Was a bit dissappointed, my friend had to send back her sauce, without it being replaced or the chef enquiring what is wrong with the sauce. There was a nice vibe around us and the waiter was very friendly

This Mugg and Bean is a really nice place for a meeting. It is quiet with just the right amount of foot traffic to make it look busy. The downside for me is that the service is really sloppy with no sign of management and never a waitress when you need the bill. Still I would go back for a... More

Had a few late morning coffees and a few people around us ordered food, it looked lovely so decided to stay for lunch. Good selection and great value (compared to UK).

My friend and i did not know anything about Mugg and Bean but we asked around and we were told that it was a solid eatery and coffee shop in Capetown for a number of years and we would not be disappointed. We were not-it was excellent. We stopped by for lunch-my friend is a vegetarian and ordered a salad... More

We always enjoy the Mugg and Bean but lately it just seems better - piping hot food and plates on these cold winter days .

Mugg and Bean in Constantia is my favorite of this excellent franchise chain. the staff are always accommodating and the food is fresh, the coffee is hot (and bottomless if you want it to be) and the setting is sheltered and tranquil - even on a Saturday morning in busy, shopping Cape Town!

It was my first time experiencing this branch. Pleasant seating area,service was efficient and the manager seemed to be hands on and on the floor. It was great to see the new items that the menu had and I loved the new listing of drinks. We all had beverages so can't comment on the food items. All in all nice... More

Mugg and Bean has been a solid eatery and coffee shop in Cape Town for many years. However, service has free-fallen and is now a real disappointment. The solid food and coffee menu remains but it was really the friendly, efficient and memorable service that brought me back for meetings and catchups over the past 10 years. I'm not sure... More

I ordered a salad and was very satisfied that the vegetables were not mixed together so I did not to have to eat anything I do not like to eat. Quick and friendly service! I had a piece of cake for dessert, and I have hardly seen such a big piece of cake before. It tasted delicious! I will happily... More
