Nothing special here

Came here with my neighbor since she had a gift card. We were seated in a booth by the kitchen. We felt nice an toasty sitting in that area. The service is slow here. All we ordered were the Countryside Two Egg with Turkey Sausage, Crêpes Florentine and the Mimi's Classic Muffins. The food... read more

Although with the current construction around this restaurant they are still in full business with at least half the place full at 4:14 PM when we arrived. We had a pleasant young man who offered us menu's within moments of arrival. When asked about a special of soup and sandwich we were told it was a lunch item and we... More

My family of 5 had dinner at this location on a Saturday night. Surprisingly it wasn't very busy. The service was very good as well as the food. The only complaint I had was the somewhat limited entree selections (from what I remembered what was on the Menu a few years ago). The location was easy to find, near the... More

Been to several Mimi's around the country this is by far the worst one I've been to. Ordered the eggs benedict, the sauce was bland the potatoes were cold. The coffee was average at best. Don't waste your $$$$'s here

My wife and I have eaten at the Mimi's restaurant in Phoenix, AZ several times and have always been impressed by the quality and variety of food served there, and the service. However, this location was a disappointment compared to the Phoenix site. The menu variety is much smaller, and the food was bland. I was quite surprised and disappointed.... More

Ordered turkey meal which cost $12.00 and felt that the portion served was not enough. Requested to talk to manager to complain, however, manager was not helpful, stated that portions were "weighed" . I have eaten this meal before and I know for a fact that the portions were larger than what I received this visit. The manager was not... More

I wanted to like this Mimi's Cafe as I have eaten at another one and loved it -- I ordered a salad and my husband had the meat loaf -- The food was really not that good and the service worse -- My salad was mostly iceberg lettuce and a good bit wilted -- When we arrived we had planned... More

Went to this location with husband, son and his girlfriend on a Wednesday evening around 7 PM. Staff was friendly and we were seated right away. We placed our orders, then the waiter came to the table to tell my husband his first choice was not available. So he chose another dish, only to have the waiter come back again... More

We used to love Mimi's. Well we love the one in Dublin. We ate at the one in Hayward and it took over an out to get our meals. Drinks and bread were never refilled and no one came around to ask how things were. Our food was cold and really bad tasting. We will never eat at this Mimi's... More
