MUGG & BEAN

In the early 1990s, Ben Filmalter and his wife Judi were in Chicago when they discovered a little coffee shop on the South Side. Its remarkably friendly and generous feel drew the couple to lingering on to take in its atmosphere.

When they returned, the seed of a generous coffee shop and restaurant concept, planted in Chicago, began to take shape. Finding the right launch location was next and once that was decided, Mugg & Bean was born in 1996 at Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront.

FROM THIS POINT, OUR HISTORY BEGAN WRITING ITSELF

…as more and more restaurants opened across the continent, and overseas too.
