An okay option

We ended up here when the wait for Syrup & Eggs was too long. The Morning Star Farms sausage they use has egg whites, which limits options. We got the tofu scramble and asked to sub veggies instead of the sausage. The cashier seemed confused even thought that’s exactly what their menu says to do to make it vegan. Unfortunately our scrambles both came out with the sausage on the side. We ate just the scramble and toast and it was pretty average. Probably wouldn’t come here again for food. The coffee was fantastic though!

The sweet potato hash with tofu was great and the vegan muffin was delicious. My non-vegan friends enjoy the humongous biscuit, eggs, hashbrowns and homemade jam.

Pros: Great location, Cool ambience, Delicious food

Cons: Parking, Small bags that couldn't hold the food, Got sick from coffee

Wonderful breakfast wrap - one of the best I’ve had in 15 years of being vegan!

Knowledgeable of what was vegan, had a great breakfast wrap, fruit cup and bought a muffin for later. All was tasty and the coffee was good too - very helpful service. After realizing I was vegan they were clear to ensure that no one else in my party had vegan or vegetarian needs.

Great vegan options

Had the paleo breakfast with tofu and morning star patties and chai latte with oat milk. Everything was fresh and tasted great. Staff was really nice as well

No vegan meat

This place unfortunately no longer has the vegan burrito I see on previous reviews. They do not have vegan meat as their veggie sausages contain egg. I ordered a veggie scramble with tofu eggs and it was very bland. They did have a delicious vegan muffin which saved this review from being 2 stars.

Multiple vegan options

I had the Albert breakfast sandwich. It's vegan by default, and the staff were proactive in telling us that the Morningstar sausage you could add had eggs in it! Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Highly recommend!

Good drinks, disappointing food

I love that mean mug does not up charge for alternative milks! I enjoyed a wonderful dirty chai with oat milk. I ordered the vegan breakfast and was underwhelmed. The tofu scramble was simply not good. The forward flavor was turmeric, leaving a bitter and otherwise flavorless tofu. I added kale to the dish and was disappointed that it was raw and without any dressings. I love kale, but not to munch on completely plain. Thankfully I ordered some delicious blueberry jam for my toast (great bread btw) and ended up smothering my entree in it. Odd choice but I did make it better. With a couple of thoughtful adjustments to the recipe for the dish, it would have been much better.

Pros: No upcharge for alternative milks , Decent price, Mobile ordering

Cons: Styrofoam to-go containers

We loved Mean Mug!

We visited Chattanooga and brought breakfast in case we could not find a good place for vegan breakfast. We didn’t find anything, so ate our own oatmeal and the found Mean Mug Coffe to get a cup to start our day. We ending up eating some avocado toast when we got there because we were sad we didn’t know about Mean Mug before we ate! Very friendly staff. They have several vegan options for breakfast and lunch. Try them! You’ll love them!

Pros: Several vegan options., Indoor and outdoor seating., Staff are knowledgeable about vegan foods.

Cons: Couldn’t rate it 5 because it is not fully vegan
