Mimi's Cafe is a proven high-quality place to dine. The menu items are basic American cuisine and they are well prepared. The wait staff is very friendly and competent. Other local restaurants (breakfast or brunch) were much more crowded, but Mimi's is more than good enough. Come here first!!!

Nice atmosphere and wonderfully delicious food. I had a little comfort with turkey, mashed, stuffing, and cranberries because I was missing home. This meal sealed the deal. The crepe desserts are a must. You might want to share because they are rich in flavor.

Previously owned by the Bob Evans chain, this restaurant was sold in 2013. The food has a French flair and the service is very good. The atmosphere remains the same as the old Mimis. We had a turkey dinner and chicken crepes/salad. I did find the old menus more explanatory as they would list the sides. The new menu does... More

We have been to this Mimi's various times over the years. The quality of food and property condition is consistently very good. We ate there this week and were very pleased. In addition, went back next day for dessert take-out - the creme brulee cheesecake was fantastic! The area around this has been in transition of redevelopment for 5 years... More

We were seated promptly. It was hard to choose because everything sounded great. Our waiter was very good. We split a bowl of french onion soup to start. I'd return for that alone. My daughter had the bacon blue cheese salad and I had the roasted chicken. The waiter didn't hear me and initially brought the wrong meal. He was... More

We just got off an airplane, checked into our hotel and asked the front desk clerk, "where is a great place to eat breakfast around here?" She immediately directed us to Mimi's and what a great recommendation. Food? Outstanding. Service? Very good. Would like to go back again some day.
