We stopped in Mesa on our cross country trip to visit with friends we hadn't seen in a long time. They suggested Mimi's. The food was good and plentiful as well as the service. A plus was that the waiter didn't annoy us every five minutes with, "You guys doing OK?" He seemed to realize we hadn't... read more

We love the food here. The atmosphere is fun and festive and service is very good. Their fish and frites is our favorite meal with plenty of food for the two of us to share. We routinely swap out the fries for mashed potatoes and the cole slaw for onion straws - yummmmm! I signed up for their emails and... More

Stopped by Mesa location for breakfast and again was very disappointed with food quality. Out of 3 order, 2 were wrong, they were replaced and still one order was wrong. We didn't have enough time to get that order reordered. Have had same issue with Austin, TX location, not sure will try Mimi's again. Very disappointed. Note eggs benedict should... More

My husband and I recently visited Mesa, Az for the Cubs Spring Training games. Going to the games is fun but really not my thing. So he indulges me with trying new places to dine. This cafe is haighly recommended and since I am Mimi to our two beautiful grandchildren, dining here was a must for our trip. We were... More

I like this diner because I think it is better than most diners in its class in terms of entrees, salads and soups. It also has decent wine and I like the French bistro theme. It is still a chain diner but I usually enjoy my food and I don't normally go to diners so I consider this a step... More

Mimi's Cafe was within walking distance of our hotel in Mesa, Az. We ate breakfast there two of the three mornings we were there. Good choice of food, decent service and reasonably priced.

Not sure if our taste have improved or if Mimi's quality has gone down since we first visited many years ago. We believe it may be a combination. We have become foodies that enjoy good quality chef resturants and seldom go to a chain resturant which have raised the bar for resturants. On the other hand this area of Mesa... More
