I find petrol station cafes overpriced especially for what they offer so when Mugg & Bean opened in Hurlingham, I had no interest to visit the place despite all the positive reviews it was receiving online. My friend recently hit me up for a breakfast date at the cafe and i obliged because I can never turn down free food.
There isn’t much to say about the ambience of a cafe located within a convenience store so we will jump right to the food and drinks on offer.
Chicken and Mushroom Pie – Kshs 230
Its been a minute since I had a chicken pie and this one is one of the better ones Ive had. What I loved most was how creamy the filling was.
Coronation Chicken Roll – Kshs 250
I Loved this roll. It was a perfect combination of sweet and savoury. Order this.
Savoury Mince Pie – Kshs 230
This pie is filled to the brim with mince! I found the mince meat filling a bit bland and under seasoned.
Beef Brie Onion Roll – Kshs 350
On paper this sounds delicious but what we got was rather disappointing. The Brie and the cheese were non-existent in taste. I’d give this a miss.
Bacon, Cheddar, Potato and Egg Bowl – Kshs 400
This egg bowl was everything! The combination of flavours go so well together. Im currently salivating thinking about this dish and highly recommend ordering this.
Chicken Mayo and Mozarella Sandwich – Kshs 350
This was a great toasty and dare i say one of the best ive come across in the city. You cant go wrong with creamy chicken and cheese sandwiched in between soft bread.
Berry Coconut and Lemon Freezo – Kshs 350
When i saw this on the menu i thought the flavour pairings were odd but when i tasted it i was pleasantly surprised.
Mango Coconut Freezo – Kshs 350
I Loved Loved everything about this freezo! The mango and coconut pair together so well making this the perfect drink to have over a sunny day. A must order.
Mugg & Bean pleasantly surprised me with an experience much more than I expected. The pies are OK but my stand outs were the egg bowl, sandwich and Frezzos which were fantastic. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for breakfast and snacks on the go.
