So disappointed.,,,last weekend I went to Mimi's in Fairfield. It's the halfway point for my friend and I to meet for breakfast. It used to be consistently good in every way. Now it's TERRIBLE!! There was no hostess when we arrived and we had to wait 10 minutes for someone to help us. They were only seating people in one... More

I live close to this cafe and I have always been attracted by the French-farmhouse architecture. Two previous visits for lunch were okay, but a recent dinner there was a miserable experience. Two large parties in our dinning area were incredibly noisy. I don't blame management for that, but wait staff should have asked those people to keep their little... More

After having stopped going to Mimi's for the past year or so, we are there about three times last month and found that it was almost as good as the old Mimi's. Thought the food had improved a lot and the muffins were great - like the good ole days. We will return real soon.

Good food and clean place and Great Service. Home cooked meals are good and the quality is excellent . I would recommend this especially to the elderly as they have food that watches your salt level

Had a nice Sunday morning breakfast. Nice choices- I went basic with eggs, potatoes and bacon. Eggs were nicely cooked, service was attentive.

Potentially really good but not executed well. Nice menu with lots of choices but lack of attention to detail by kitchen staff dulls the experience. More salt does not equate to better food. I ordered the mussels with "friets" which were allegedly prepared with Meyer lemon but no hint of lemon in the broth. Non the less the broth was... More

Gone way down hill since the new ownership. Used to love their corn chowder until the ruined it by changing the recipe.

Came to California for my son's wedding in April and was happy to see a Mimi's close by for brunch the next day. We had 12 people including small children and were quickly seated at a large table with plenty of room. Mimi's is always consistent with their quality no matter where I've been. Everyone had something different from breakfast... More

This local restaurant is pretty good when it comes to brunch especially the champagne flights or sampler. Great ambiance, good food and good people or crew. This restaurant can get pretty busy on special holidays.
