Whilst a great place to meet up with freinds or for a business meet. It is only average when it comes to the food or ambience. But hey, it is convenient and the service is good.

Went for breakfast, it was busy so we had to wait a while for our second cup of coffee, I think the waiter forgot about us, we had to ask again. The breakfast was ok.

We were 3 people who went to Mugg & Bean, Farrarmere Square for a Sunday lunch on March the 5th. Two of us ordered the rump. It was so tough it could not even be cut with a steak knife. When we complained, the waitress told us that the chef said he received a bad (tough) batch of meat. We... More

I have visited several times and The Mug & Bean is just fine for a casual meal or a coffee break. Service and food quality is more than acceptable but nothing special.

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
