Reviewed 3 July 2019

We came back from a two week visit to Namibia and were very tired from a long trip from Mariental to Upington. We therefore were just looking for a place to eat something and to have a decent cup of coffee. From the moment we...step into the restaurant until we paid our bill, the service was exceptional. Definitely worth a visit!More

Always a pleasure to stop at Mugg and Bean for a coffee and snack/lunch. This location in the new Kalahari Mall is clean and right in the middle of things.

Just popped in for a light meal and some needed coffee, and it was a lovely Mugg and Bean to stop at, in a very clean neat mall. The service was very good and the food lovely.

Spotless restaurant with cordial and attentive staff. The portions are more than adequate. As M&B is in the mall, allow time. It is not fast food, but good food ... and well worth the wait.

Staff can do with more training. Food was good. But the cake was to big and very expensive. I'm sure the Mugg and bean group can have a look at that. I never saw a manager on the floor.

This is one of the best restaurants in Upington. The staff is friendly and efficient and the food can't get any better! Presentation of food on the plate will make you come back again and again.

Came here for brunch on a Sunday and overall enjoyed the experience. The service was friendly but a bit slow. We ordered two orange juices (57.80R together), one coconut soup (34.90R), one toasted sundried tomato sandwich with fries (56.90R), and one Havana Omelette (64.90R). Food...tasted good and portions were decent.More

Mugg & Bean is always a safe bet and you know you will get good food. The Mugg & Bean in Upington is what one would expect with the same good food and menu. TIP: Have their bottomless lemonade! Great for the hot weather in...Upington.More
