Breakfast w/Family

We stopped at Mimi's in Fairfield where we met my sister and her daughter for breakfast. My wife and I shared the farmhouse tacos which were very tasty and more than adequate for the two of us. My sister and niece shared the eggs Benedict which they said were delicious. We've eaten at this... read more

We regularly eat at Mimi's and like the food. Service is friendly but not professionally trained. Most dishes are excellent but the French fries are mediocre at best and sometimes bad. Never really crisp and usually not hot enough. We usually send back but for some reason they never get them right even though they seem to use potatoes on... More

A Menu that gives a good choice of standard and International dishes. The Cow au Vin was good - not outstanding - but with a hint of France! Steak was good and vegetables just right.

Really good food. The service was great as well! Sonia took good care of us and made a very nice cafe mocha. The potato benedict was good as well. The atmosphere was functional Italian but very comfortable.

Great service and great atmosphere but the food was average. The bread they bring to the table was amazingly good but the food we ordered for dinner was only ok. My French fries were horrible. They were so greasy I could not eat them. The chicken was dry.

Mimi's is a nice clean restaurant, suitable for family or couples. Slightly overpriced, but not much. I had a chicken crepe and liked it.

My wife and I remembered good things at other Mimi's in the past, and were looking for another good meal. We were disappointed. Service was very slow, even though they were not busy. My sole was dry and overcooked. My wife had turkey and dressing. The dressing was stone cold. Cranberries had an odd color and sweet taste. We will... More

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!
