We take pride in serving meals that are as easy on the tummy as they are on the eye. Whether you’re looking for a plant-based pick-me-up or an alternative to dairy, there’s something for everyone at Mugg & Bean. We also include kilojoule counts on all our meals, as well as a full nutritional guide on our website to help take the effort out of making better food choices. We’re constantly adding healthier meals to our menu, as well as reasons to enjoy these dishes. One of these incentives is our partnership with Discovery Vitality, which gives Discovery members 25% cash back on selected healthy meals, and 50% on selected kids meals.

At Mugg & Bean, the safety and well-being of our customers is our top priority. We’re committed to serving our customers the great tasting, high quality meals they expect from us, every time, making sure that the food we serve is always delicious and safe to eat.

The food we serve is fresh, and adheres to the very highest requirements, using quality ingredients while meeting regulatory requirements and international best practice standards.

All Mugg & Bean restaurants are required to uphold our stringent food safety standards in order to make sure we serve fresh and quality meals. Mugg & Bean restaurants are audited to make sure that all health and safety requirements are upheld. Our suppliers are also required to adhere to our demanding food safety standards and are independently audited to make sure food safety requirements are maintained at all times.

We take complaints related to our food very seriously and strive to respond to potential health and safety issues related to the food we serve as a priority.

It’s important to us that our customers have a great experience at our restaurants and serving you a fresh, tasty and quality meal will always come first and foremost!


Tastebuds don’t lie. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of sinking your teeth into any of our familiar favourites, you’ll know there’s something special about a Mugg & Bean meal. We understand that a meal is only as good as the ingredients that were used to prepare it. That’s why we use only the best locally sourced and grown potatoes. We leave the skin on your fries not only because they taste better that way, but because they’re more notorious and create less food waste.

Our burgers are generously stacked with all the best, freshest toppings, and our beef burgers are the true stars of the show. All our beef patties are made with a 100% pure mix of chuck and brisket meat – making them more juicy and even more tasty.

The same effort goes into sourcing coffee beans from the best coffee-growing regions in the world, before they’re roasted to perfection right here at home. After that they’re in the hands of our professionally trained baristas, who are just as passionate about your pick-me-up as you are.

A simple motto guides our approach to recipes: ‘If it’s not broken, don’t fix it’. That’s why our Famous Giant Muffins are still made with the same recipe we’ve been using since 1996. All our muffins, cakes, tarts, cookies, and more are baked fresh every day right in our restaurants, using only free-range eggs. You’ll by hooked by those enticing baking scents before you’ve even come inside! It’s also why our famous Toasted Chicken Mayo makes use of the same iconic recipe that our customers have enjoyed for years.

From the first bite to the last sip, you can taste the extra effort and love we put in.

At Mugg & Bean, generous portions aren’t the only thing we’re concerned about. We also understand that what happens in the kitchen echoes into the natural environment. That’s why our food is produced, sourced, and grown in a sustainable manner. Our takeaway cups are also fully compostable and biodegradable, which makes it more likely to end up in a garden patch than a landfill. We’ve also stopped clutching at plastic straws, and now your takeaway drink will be served with a paper one instead.

Our reusable Travel Mugg is made from sustainable bamboo, and apart from helping the planet, you also benefit from R5 off every refill in your Travel Mugg. Check with your local M&B to see if they have stock.

Community Logo

We’re serious about serving our community. When it comes to sourcing for our veg, fruit, and meat, over 90% comes from local producers and suppliers. We’ve built lasting relationships with farming communities that benefit everybody from the farmer, to the planet, to you.

You’ll taste more sweetness in our honey, too. Our partner, Musanya Honey Co, aims to bring meaningful development to rural Zambia that benefits locals by offering them sustainable opportunities in the global agriculture economy, especially women. Our honey comes from pristine Miombo Woodlands, where there’s no modern agriculture, pollution, pesticides or chemicals, so you know that it’s better for you and for the planet.

In selected communities, we serve a Halaal menu, which is just as tasty and generous as our generic menu.

When it comes time to give back, we flex our generosity and so do you, our customer. Every year we help raise funds and awareness for families fighting childhood cancer through our CSI partner, Cupcakes Of Hope.

Find out more about the kids who benefit from your help, and make your own generous donation.

We’re always looking for more and more ways to make a positive impact. We don’t just serve food; we serve food with thought.
