TURNS Shar­ing is hot, cus­tomers are cool, at Mugg & Bean


One of Gra­ham­stown's favourite restau­rants is two years old this month and to say thank you to the town, they are giv­ing back in a de­li­cious way!

Owner Craig Foord said two years af­ter their grand launch, Mugg & Bean are more de­li­cious, and more pop­u­lar than ever.

To cel­e­brate, they re­cently launched their break­fast spe­cial - a com­pli­men­tary flat white cap­puc­cino when you or­der from the all-day break­fast cat­e­gory on the menu.

Times are tough and pock­ets are empty - but Mugg & Bean's menu of­fers great value for money.

“We have a unique menu which is up­dated ev­ery sea­son," Foord said.

This week, they launched their sum­mer menu that in­cludes plat­ters cater­ing for six to eight peo­ple.

The Mugg & Bean menu caters for ev­ery­one, in­clud­ing the health con­scious, veg­e­tar­i­ans, ve­gans, those who re­ally like some­thing meaty on their plate and those who in­sist on or­ganic food.

Based at the busy Pep­per Grove mall, Mugg & Bean caters for a wide va­ri­ety of peo­ple and not only al­lows cus­tomers to share meals, but en­cour­ages it.

“We cur­rently have an ex­cit­ing menu where peo­ple can come in and mix and match their meal and share it with each other, turn­ing the meal into an ex­pe­ri­ence,” he said.

Din­ers and mid-morn­ing snack­ers can or­der mini Has­sel­back pota­toes, Mex­i­can corn frit­ters, smoky bar­beque pork belly rash­ers, spicy buf­falo wings and a light wedge salad to mix, match, and share to­gether.

"Mugg & Bean is about shar- ing and en­gag­ing with friends and fam­ily," says Se­nior Man­ager Reinette Crous.

They restau­rant is in the process of get­ting a liquor li­cense, but mean­while, groups may bring their own al­co­hol to the restau­rant for a fee of R25 per ta­ble.

“We have our Face­book page (Mugg & Bean Gra­ham­stown) and en­cour­age peo­ple to like the page," Crous said. "If you get your friends to also like the page, you stand a chance of win­ning a spot prize."

If you're look­ing for a se­ri­ously big meal, Foord sug­gests the Pit Boss bar­beque grill - a 125g rump basted in bar­beque sauce, smoky bar­beque pork belly rash­ers, boere­wors, buf­falo chicken wings, grilled corn on the cob, skin on fries with creamy mus­tard cheese dip­ping sauce.

“The Pit Boss bar­beque grill is our lat­est in­ven­tion on the menu and it's a great one to share,” he said.

The restau­rant also does cus­tom cater­ing for func­tions such as end-of-the-year func­tions. A range of plat­ters in­cludes a break­fast plat­ter, a meaty plat­ter and a chicken plat­ter.

Cel­e­brat­ing the cafe cul­ture vibe is the fan­tas­tic deal where you can buy one cup of bot­tom­less cof­fee and help your­self to more as much as you want for free while en­joy­ing un­capped WiFi.

"Our cus­tomer base has grown be­cause we're in­volved with the com­mu­nity and we do our best to make our cus­tomers feel at home when they're here," Foord said.

“We are ac­tively en­gaged in sup­port­ing the lo­cal Gra­ham­stown com­mu­nity on many fronts and will con­tinue to keep do­ing so.”
