If there was anything wrong on this day, it was that the service was shocking. Music was blaring away during shift change, waiters and cleaners mopped up while people were seated and loud exchanges between staff was the order of the day. The comfort food was good, enough to drown sorrows. On weekends I've seen this m&b packed to the... More

Always have the breakfast either fresh fruit and muesli or the oats in Winter. Love the red Capuccino and ginger beer.

This is the ideal place to meet friends or even solo. The food is always good. Some a bit pricey but mostly value for money. They have breakfast options that is quite affordable. Coffee variety is good - try the coconut options! Yummy! Awesome variety on drinks - hot and cold. The only think that is a disturbance, is the... More

I am very disappointed in Mug & Bean Farrarmere Square Benoni. I absolutely love Mug & Bean in general, but my past experiences with this outlet have left me speechless. I visit East Rand Mall and Sandton regularly and have only the highest of praise for their staff, service and quality and portions of food. Thus, I regard my comparison... More

Always loved the food at Mugg & Bean, but was a bit dissapointed this time, I ordered the bare burger, which was supposed to be low carb, but it was so sweet with some sweet sauce that I know it was not low carb, the sweet patatoe chips was not fried nice and cold. It is a same because the... More

The food is always excellent & delicious. Great menu and good coffee. The waiters are friendly, the space might just be a bit tight though.

As we walked in we could just smell the beautiful aroma of their coffee. I really liked it there. I had the chicken and mushroom pie. And I think I died and went to heaven. Best pie I have had.

Returned for breakfast after avoiding following a bad experience, generally seemed back up to Mugg & Bean standards but certainly not the best. Overall still some lack of attention to the detail on the dishes but no complaints. Service also generally improved. Will no longer avoid.

Thank Whctree
