After a year and a few months we are back to have cheesecake and tea, hoping it would be better than before. We had the cheesecake with berries.

The service at the Greenstone Mall is always excellent and the food great. The menu can get boring sometimes, but this is not a problem for breakfast as it is quite diverse. I love the Eggs Benedict, but the Hollandaise taste can vary from branch to branch. You also have a wide variety of coffee beans sourced from across the... More

I've been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. Service is fantastic and since I'm somewhat of a regular , the waitresses know my order even before I place it. Being the professionals they are , they always ask first though. ;-) The food has always been good ...... always made with fresh ingredients.

A recent shopping trip to the Greenstone Shopping Mall left us hot and thirsty and a little shopping weary. Going to the Mugg & Bean was a good choice indeed.

Good service and great food! One of my favourite Mugg and Bean shops to visit. Ideally located for a coffee after the morning's shopping.

Were 3 of us and we enjoyed our coffee which was produced smartly. One person had a "banting" breakfast and it was exactly as required. Will definitely eat there again.

I ordered a lasagne. It was disgustingly greasy and the cheese on top cold. I asked when was it made to which it was the previous morning, frozen and simply warmed up for me. Tasted disgusting. I expected better from Mugg & bean.

Convenient coffee shop where you know what you will get. Service is good. Be careful of shoplifters operating in the mall - bags are often stolen from here.

What a let down......the cheese cake which I usually rave about and go back there for was not appetising today. The topping tasted like strawberry jam and the cheese cake ..... well what can I say. I won't be going back soon for that.

As we entered the mall the power went off. Mugg and bean was prepared. The service was quick and the food was great.
