We were two families of 3 adults 3 kids. took a really long time to get our drinks, waitress placed hot coffees right in front of small kids. 2 of us had chai lattes and they were warm with chunks of cinnamon on the top. It was gross. Table on the right as you walk in has a broken leg,... More

Situated down a laneway beside the bakery this is a little gem. Excellent coffee and great sweet/savoury muffins. We went there on 3 occassions and each time was a delightful experience. The coffee was consistently good and was made to the right temperature with good crema and a pleasure to drink. The lady who owns/runs the cafe was very attentive... More

This review is a little overdue in coming so I must apologize. We ski every year whilst in New Zealand and usually have coffee in Queenstown but it has become harder & harder to find a cafe that is consistently good and does a really good coffee ( we're fussy ). We decided to go to Arrowtown for something different... More

This place is so good, highly recommend. It's hard to find a good iced chocolate but these guys nailed it. My eggs on toast was perfect, and my partner raved about the mondo stack he had for breakfast. Service was great, and the food came out really quickly. Will definitely be back.

Really nice cafe in a nice location. Hidden away, and really worth seeking out. The Works and the Mushroom dishes are very tasty.

On visiting Arrowtown today, we came upon Cafe Mondo by chance. It is in a small courtyard, enjoying both outside and inside dining. We just wanted a light snack and the toasted sandwiches were very tasty and reasonably priced. The flat white coffee was exceptionally good. The service was a little bit hit and miss, but would go again if... More

Went here recently with my wife and mother - wonderful food. Had the Thai beef salad. We also ordered the summer platter and Chicken Stack. The food was tasty and wine was nice although slightly expensive. Nice atmosphere - sitting outside - a good dining experience. would drop by again if in Arrowtown!
