Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Arrived in Bowness. Went for a wander and found Mio Mondo. Lovely. Both had light bites, hubby really enjoyed scrambled eggs on toast and a pot of tea which gave 2 good cups of tea. I had tuna mayo and cheese toastie, packed with tuna...and cheese and right amount of crunch. Coffee very tasty. Highly recommend.More

We stayed locally for the weekend and called in to Mio Mondo’s for breakfast both mornings, the mega breakfast is superb value for money, with a cappuccino and fresh orange juice, my wife had the breakfast wrap. By far the best breakfast I’ve had in...Bowness. The fact it was all served with a smile and very friendly staff made it for a very pleasant place to start your day.More

We came here for breakfast one day and were delighted. The full English was excellent and reasonably priced for the Lakes. The menu was on display outside. Special mention must be made of the waitress who was really efficient - taking orders, delivering food, cleaning...down tables and generally adding to the atmosphere of a well run and thriving establishment.More
