I bought sandwiches for a business client and staff. They told me about this small little café not far from their office that is very reasonably priced. The bread is to DIE for!! I bet they source out locally but man was it good!!! I had the chicken pesto, which was huge, I ate 1/2 for lunch and 1/2 for... More

I've driven past this cute cottage advertising Mundos Cafe a hundred times. I heard it was good and finally I pulled in. Wow! I had a Mundos Cubana, it was juicy, fresh, flavorful and I devoured it. The pork was tender, the bacon perfectly cooked and the Francesa role was melt in your mouth. The service is fast and friendly.... More

Wow the best Tri Tip sandwich on the Peninsula hands down!! They have some good lunch specials but I'm hooked on the Tri Tip! Call ahead for easy pick up....you can eat outside but space is limited.

We were looking for a lunch stop and stumbled upon Mundos. This is a great find. We had the chicken bacon ranch sandwich (hot), a ham sandwich that came with an incredible amount of ham, and a plain cheeseburger. The food was prepared fresh, was made with care, and was very reasonably priced. Service was fast and friendly. My concern... More

Cute and clean place. BLT was amazing and falafel we had was really good. Prices reasonable too. Great casual lunch place.

This place has got to have the best sandwiches I have ever tasted! The prices are very reasonable. I last visited and got the Argentine Tri-tip sandwich. Perfection! The meat was incredibly tender, very flavorful and the bread was fresh. I added a side of the delicious potato salad and got the Australian root beer. A great meal!

Having been to Mundos countless times since they opened, it's time to show my appreciation. It's a tiny place with huge sandwiches. Good variety, reasonable prices, fast service and clean cafe. Some of my favorites are the classic BLT, Tuna Salad and the Cubano with pork and chorizo. I highly recommend Mundos for a great sandwich.

We could not have found better food. Everything was fresh and homemade. My husbands turkey sandwich war from a fresh roasted turkey...not deli meat. EXCELLENT!!!

Although Mundos Cafe has a really small dining area (8 two-person tables inside and a few outside, but no high chairs for little kids), it's clean and quaint and has some sandwiches you just can't get anywhere else. We had Tri Tip Argentino and the garden quesadilla, and both were packed with goodness and delicious. The counter lady was efficient,... More
