Loved, loved, loved my cold brewed iced coffee. Iced latte almost as good. Staff on both of our visits super helpful and friendly. Will definitely visit again when we're back in SLO.

We met a friend at Bello Mundo on his recommendation and we lived it. We try to go to independent coffee ships when we can and we were very happy with our visit here. The baristas make the effort to make their coffee look great and they use wholesome organic products that taste great. I don't like really sweet coffee drinks and had their mocha and it was great! Not to sweet at all, very enjoyable with one of their coffee cakes they heated up in the toaster oven.

On the off chance that you get tired of drinking American coffee, even including all the modern trendy brands, this little gem is where you want to go. Yes, it's small, but the coffees are great and freshly grounded if you want, service is very friendly, it's a homey stop-over place for locals (which is fine, in a town as nice as this one...). Also, try the cookies! And well, If it does get crowded for morning coffee, just browse in the great bookshop almost next door, in anticipation...

I'm in the local high school and I've lived in Italy for a long time, so I really miss the typical Italian "cafe". But here, I found the exact replica! Best espresso in the county, the atmosphere is so welcoming and the baristas are just so good! I come here every day after school to hang out with friends and they all love it! Prices are fair and service is awesome! Located right in San Luis Obispo downtown! Love live it!

bello mundo has just become one of our fav spots in SLO.

it's been years since i've had the chance to really spend a weekend enjoying SLO. i graduated a LONG time ago, so in going back to SLO this past weekend, it was amazing to see what's changed. we took a chunk of time to really explore downtown and find some new favs and rekindle our love for the old favs. but before we could start on this journey - we needed coffee!

we saw the amazing reviews on bello mundo and decided to start here. it's a very small spot but not without it's charm. i loved everything about it. the decor, the non-matching chairs/tables, the variety of baked goods & the water on hand to chase them down, the reading material to pursue while enjoying said baked good and water. and the coffee! we had espressos and a pour over of some sort...but the true test was my husband. he loves asking a million questions about coffee and i have to say they answered all of them and with a smile.
