About Us

The Mugg & Bean story starts in the 1990s when our founder visited a small coffee shop in Chicago. Though the coffee shop was small they prided themselves on their spirit of generosity. Taking inspiration from this, the first Mugg & Bean was opened in Cape Town in 1996.

Mugg & Bean On-The-Move was opened so that we could offer that same generosity and restaurant quality, packaged to go. When you’re on the move, pop in and refuel with our signature cappuccinos and gourmet takeaway meals.

Mugg & Bean sit-down restaurants are the place where friends and loved ones gather to relax and reconnect over good conversation and great food. It’s much more than a coffee shop, it’s your home away from home, where you arrive as a customer and leave as a friend. Whether you’re in the mood for a world-class coffee, a decadent slice of freshly baked cake, a wholesome salad, a gourmet burger or a grill, M&B is the place to be! So, make that coffee Bottomless and stay a while longer.
