I was invited to have a business lunch here. It's right around the corner from my office. It's very casual, you order at the counter and find a table to sit to eat or take away. The hamburger was very good and I could get potato salad with it. This is a great inexpensive place for anyone with limited time... More

Seems to be a family run restaurant, but make sure you get there early in the evening as space was limited we had to wait 35 minutes

Lots of options for burgers and HUGE sandwiches. No alcohol licence so only tea and some sodas. Try the Thai iced tea for something different but good. I had the tri tip and enjoyed it. This is 3 blocks from my place so I'll be back. Especially in the summer to relax at their outdoor tables. Be aware this is... More

This week we craved good hamburgers....so of to Mumdos for take out. They serve great old fashioned burgers & no skimping on the meat. The only thing we miss are that French fries are not available. They have potato salad or chips instead.

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

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!
