Mondo Cafe Bar & Grill Esplanade Cairns

Revisited Mondo’s  on the weekend – not a lot of choice if you don’t want meat. The menu the first time can be confusing as the options that have gluten in them have (g) next to them and the gluten free options have (gf).  The menu hasn’t changed in years. None of the starters have…
