The Mugg & Bean chain has long been a favourite eating place of my family, especially the Waterfront flagship Restaurant in all it's various locations over the past 20 years or so.

After a quite a long absence I visited to eat breakfast on Sat Mar 15th & although the location may have changed, I'm pleased to say that the service level & food quality are of the same high standard as they always were.

Mugg & Bean is family orientated & has both inside & outside seating. If sitting outside, beware of the probability of visits from the local sea gulls as the area is literally on the Harbour side. Enjoy great views across to Table Mountain as well as other harbourside restaurants from the outside area.

The staff at Mugg & Bean are friendly & efficient & very helpful......when I visited it was extremely busy but all staff were coping & I didn't notice any complaining customers.

A small amount if Free WiFi is available in the Waterfront but it is capped which is very frustrating especially for regular visitors like myself.

All in all Mugg & Bean is a positive dining experience. While largely predictable the menu is extensive & good taking the customer from from breakfast thru dinner at prices to suit every budget & food items to suit every appetite. Vegetarian items are available. A good selection if teas, coffees, juices & sodas are also served.

You won't go wrong at Mugg & Bean, Waterfront.....

My wife and I visited several mugg and bean locations while in cape town and we were never disappointed, great coffee and meals. Like the coffee towers with different coffee choices and the huge muffins served with jam and cheese are amazing. Great place to visit for a quick bite.

Always like to use this fast food restaurant when I want a quick bite to eat and have yet to be disappointed and the one at the V & A is as good as any that I have used.
