Just looking at the name gives you the idea that Mundos Kitchen & Deli, at 13971 Cleveland Ave., next to Papa John's, isn't just a deli.

The new family owned eatery offers a full range of favorites for breakfast and lunch, as well as classic deli favorites, all at reasonable prices.

The Mund family moved here from New Jersey seven months ago and opened the restaurant two months ago because it was something the family had always wanted to do.

"It was something the father wanted to do for the children," said Steve Manson, the head cook.

They searched in Lehigh, where they live, before settling on the location in North Fort Myers.

"It had everything we wanted. The only thing we needed was to put the hood system in so we could cook hot foods," said co-owner Amy Mund.

Manson offers a home-style, American-Cuisine menu with a North Jersey flair. For breakfast, you can get a three-egg omelette or some deep-fried French toast and pancakes, with most items being between $6 and $8.

At lunchtime, unless you want breakfast for lunch, you can get a half-pound Mundo Burger, a triple-decker club or a traditional six-inch sub. But you can also get salads, appetizers and fried baskets, with no item more than $9.

The Hawaiian burger, the Philly cheesesteaks, deli sandwiches and Reubens are among the signature dishes. It's deli food with something extra, as many of the more traditional delis can't cook hot food because they don't have hoods, Manson said.

Business is what you would expect in the summer. It's died down a bit after a promising beginning.

Mund said she's looking to get through the summer before the snowbirds return in November, when she hopes she can do some advertising and get the word out by means other than word-of-mouth.

Mund believes her passion for the place is what will keep it going strong.

"I love it here. The people are great. It's a great atmosphere, a great place to take the family, and it's quiet," Mund said.

Mundos is open every day except Monday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, call 599-2297 or visit its Website at
