I think we should have elected to stay at home, rather than go to the Mugg & Bean on August 3rd. The restaurant was not overly busy, and we as a family were hoping to enjoy lunch together for the last time for a while. Three of us were not quite hungry enough to order a big lunch, so we... More

Had a bottomless gingerbeer and a mushroom, avo and bacon burger. Very tasty and a banting surprise! Good service!

I have not once had an exceptional dining experience at any mugg and bean, and the Stellenbosch one is no exception. Although the food is good, the staff are not well trained. You wait very long for drinks and food even if the place is empty. Wouldn't recommend a place like this when there are so many other quaint coffee... More

After driving from Cape Town before touring the winelands of Stellenbosch and Franschoek we popped into M&B fro some breakfast. Ordering 2x French Toast with bacon and maple syrup were promptly delivered with great service and tasted excellent. Coffees too were very good along with fresh orange juices to top off a filling and nice breakfasts.

I often visit Mugg&Bean with friends to catch-up and enjoy a great meal... The food is amazing (I'd recommend having a scone or one of their burgers!) Their is a casual and relaxed atmosphere and the service is decent. If you are in Stellies, I'd say that you should give M&B a try - it's well worth it!

Having had Mugg&Bean from Boksburg to Abu Dhabi I felt as though the Stellenbosch branch gave us quite a forgettable experience. Average food (doesn't look half as good as the pictures on the menu's), average service (taking order, bringing food and removing plates) could do with a smile and a chat now and then. When I asked the waiter is... More

I had some visitors from the US, 6 adults and 6 kids and visited a number of wine estates. I did not book a lunch as the programme was pretty flexible. At 14h30 we tried Mugg & Bean as a last resort as the kids were now Hungary and impatient. I called Mugg & BeN and they were able to... More

Breakfast was had here on the 29th December. Although the service and attitude was good the food was well below what is expected at Mugg and Bean. The Croissants were send back twice just not baked properly. Eggs hard and tasteless. I know its the silly season but not good enough in a town full of tourists.
