Have stopped in here a couple of times while in Arrowtown. Like their selection of sausage rolls and pies. Quick service and located with in the center of town. Cozy little location.

My wife and I enjoyed going to Cafe Mondo for breakfast while we stayed in Arrowtown. Nice big mugs of steaming coffee and tea as well as reasonable size portions at breakfast.

We walked in the door looking for breakfast, there was a breakfast menu on the counter I asked if breakfast was still being served I received a snappy abrupt "no" while she whipped the breakfast menu away. Incredibly rude service. We turned around and walked out. Don't bother going here if you want service

I cannot say that the place is bad, only the service. It took like forever to get our cappuccino although the place wasn't crowded.

Bit disappointing. Good coffee but cakes not that tasty or sweet. Not good service. Young girl who greeted us as we walked in was not friendly and welcoming. Bit of a shame in a place with so many tourists.

10,50$ for two eggs on two toasts and nothing else more in the plate is abusive. It is basic cooking. 8$ the basic smoothie (carrots celeri ginger) is abusive too. There are better places for a true generous breakfast for the same price.

Dreary weather we having out here today so decided to sit in a cafe and enjoy something hot. Good recommendation for Cafe Mondo and here we are. Sooo glad I didn't go for the bowl of hot chocolate as suggested by the lady behind the counter. Normal cup itself was quite big. Both the cappucino which hubby took and my... More

We were looking for a decent lunch and while we were shopping down the street the shopkeeper recommended this. Tucked away down a little alley we received a warm welcome and an excellent lunch. Good choices plus specials.

I visited by myself, and had a lovely hot chocolate, on a cold day. The food was very tasty, and the service very good. There are a lot of languages offered, if you don't particularly speak English. Delicious food and drinks. Well worth a visit, and on cold days, they have blankets outside, for visitors to wrap up in.

Thank Donna W
