This is a difficult review because we love the place! The ambience and set up and game choice is perfect! Our service here has never been great but the staff is friendly. My burger last night was rare so they did fix the problem and remake one.
My biggest complaint is that it is always uncomfortably hot in there. The staff says they have had air conditioning problems all summer. I definitely won’t go back until it cools off outside if the air isn’t fixed. We were all sweating for two hours while there last night.

Got there at 10am and only one other table was seated. We got our drinks ordered and then waited about half an hour to order food. Food came and was sub par. Waitress didn’t really check up on us at all.

Food was pretty good. Mimosa flight was so fun! Service was pretty slow but our server was sweet and apologized for how long our meals took. Didn't play any games bc we were too busy talking but love that they had so many games available, such a fun idea!

The food and drinks were really good! The service was great too! I would say it was a little pricier than expected for brunch. My party was there about 12:30 pm and we had to wait until 1 pm to order off the lunch menu. Although the brunch menu was good, it was limited.

Took my daughter and her friends for her 18th bday. We all got something different and shared. The food is so delicious. The spacious, clean, and decorated so fun. We had a great time playing games. Our waiter was really nice. They were really busy and we ordered virgin drinks for all the girls who were underage and they kept bringing regular, but the server handled it and we weren't charged extra for the issue. The food is amazing. I am excited to take my family here and its definitely a new favorite place! It was perfect for my soon to be college girls 18 bday!

This place was awesome! Me and my husband like board games but are never sure what to buy and spending $50 on a game you don’t end up liking is rough. This was awesome to try out some new games (they have so so many) and even have people to help you learn the rules so you don’t have to spend an hour reading a rule book, so you can actually enjoy playing the game. Super fun, can’t wait to go back!

Their brunch menu is terrible and the waitress was not very helpful. I asked if I could substitute pork out of my sandwich with another meat (since I don’t eat pork). She said no and all of their plates have pork. I finally asked her for chicken & she brought me the sandwich with cubed pieces of fried chicken.
I would not recommend at all
What kind of restaurant does that?

Snakes and Lattes was so much fun! It was my first time going, and the staff were all extremely nice and explained how pricing works. The food was amazing and you definitely got your money’s worth for the price. The only thing that I would say wasn’t the best was that it was very very warm in the building. I understand it’s summer in Tempe, but it was hotter than I would have expected and I found myself to be uncomfortably warm.

The only 2 things I was really disappointed In. Was the temperature inside and the conditions of the bathrooms. Other than that we were really looking forward to poutine and games. Side note to chef keep the curds whole so you can actually enjoy them. From a Midwest mama

I brought my Girl Scout troop for an early night of fun & food! Our reservation request for a table in the corner was ready with a view of the bathrooms and front door to keep an eye out for my girls was perfect! Our server, Molly, was very attentive and made sure each of the girls meal was ordered as requested. There was a great game selection for my girls ranging from 6yrs old to high school. We'll definitely be returning!

I have been to other Board game Cafes in other cities and thought they were much better than Snakes and Lattes in Tempe. The food was pretty subpar and there were not a lot of options. Happy Hour is only $2 off...which is hardly a deal when you are talking about regularly $15 appetizers. You also have to pay a $5 Library fee to access the Boardgames...which is pretty standard at Boardgame cafes, however, at all the other cafes I have been to you get your library fee waved if you buy a certain amount of apps/cocktails/plates/coffees etc. The coffee here was the worst thing about my visit and I can not recommend it at all. Overall, I would recommend coming in and playing the boardgames...but nothing else really.
