Always stop here when in the area as it is near to the hotel where we stay. Experiences have been consistently good. Greeted and seated promptly. Good variety of choices on the menu.

I went there for a dinner date with my wife in May, after a long time. To make it short, they decreased the number of the entrees options and the portions of them and increased the price. No surprise it was empty in a Friday night. I ordered a cassoule. It's a French dish that is NOT expensive neither difficult... More

I had a wonderful breakfast at Mimi's Cafe! Along with a great bloody Mary! I wish I didn't have to drive. Rober, our server was friendly and helpful. We only discovered this location before we were leaving the area. Bummer. Great patries and muffins too!

The last few times I have been to Mimi's I have noticed that this restaurant is quickly going down hill. The last time was so terrible it prompted me to write this review. I went for breakfast and ordered the bacon avocado spinach tomato omelette. The two strips of bacon were fatty and just about raw- had to send it... More

We had a gift card to Mimi's so decided to give it a try. It had been many years since we had eaten there and my recollection was that it featured "French" food. The server began by saying "bonjour" so I decided to order drinks in French. We had a good laugh when the waitress said the only three words... More

Traveling to the Fairfield area for work. I visited Mimi's again, as I have in past visits, and it again fails to disappoint. I love their crepes. The french roast beef. The bread baskets and the ambiance. This place is a wonderful restaurant and I am very happy to visit and recommend to others.

Mimi's is one of those restaurants that offers a lilttle bit of everything but with a "french" twist to it. I'm enjoying the new varieties of items that they have added to the menu, but disappointed that we are not provided the hot muffins with all meals like in the past. The seating is really aged so there is not... More

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.
