What I tried:
Mexican Drinking Chocolate, Golden Milk, Hug in a Mug, Coconut Chai and Vietnamese Coffee.
The aesthetic of this café.
A unique take on a café vs a regular coffee place.
Plant based and organic.
Extremely affordable drinks and food items.
The location is very hidden behind bigger and taller buildings in a plaza. They also do not have a sign outside just yet, so be sure to look for the restaurant "Planted" as they are next door.
Golden Milk is my favorite drink from all the ones I had the privilege of trying.
They have a variety of gluten free/vegan snacks and salads made in house.
Alicia is the sweetest and friendliest person. Service was incredible and made us feel at home. Thank you for your hospitality and welcome to the neighborhood!
The Golden Milk is a turmeric, spices and coconut milk based drink. Was pleasantly sweet and a great healthy option.
Hug in A Mug is a beetroot and ginger based drink. Spicy but subtle aftertaste.
Mexican Drinking Chocolate is a decadent hot chocolate with a coconut milk base.
The Coconut Chai was not my favorite as it had a spicy ginger aftertaste which I usually do not associate with a coconut chai.
The Vietnamese coffee was unique and tasted authentic especially with the condensed milk.
The do not offer the traditional lattes or cappuccinos but their version of hot drinks are unique and different to what's available in Hamilton now.
An urban jungle right on John St S, with plants in every corner.
Bright and airy with plant themed décor and throw pillows.
Spacious and great for catching up with friends or working.
Give Café Mondo a try! The owners are amazing and they are a great addition to an ever growing café scene in Hamilton.
