great ambiance and decor, good food

Like going into a paris cafe. Need better coffee though. Muffins are tasty. Breakfast is the best tasting menu items so far.

I would have liked to order off the kids' menu! My kids had pb&j crepes and they were thrilled. I always love Mimi's bread. My husband had the French Onion soup and it looked delicious. We loved the French décor and had a great meal.

Consistently good food and service. I usually go with my walking partner after a long walk on Sundays, but, this time I took my whole family and met with friends for breakfast. Had a wonderful time and everyone left satisfied whether they ordered a light fare or pancakes or crepes. There is something for everyone. You should know, however, if... More

We go here several times a year on weekends for brunch. They have a great selection on their menu and it is always very good. Nice atmosphere inside as well. We keep going back for a reason!

Mimi's Cafe is one of those places where a body either likes it or doesn't. They try to do this Liusianna French type theme that seems to be more of a miss than hit for the folks I know who come here, including myself. HOWEVER-they do a French Onion soup that is sublime and what I hold as the example... More

Not all Mimi's are alike, and this one was nice. They serve real fruit instead of grapes and oranges and offer a choice of that or potatoes with breakfast. Good service, good breakfast, decent coffee which is refreshing for a sit down restaurant.

I go to Mimi's cafe in Monrovia every month for a business lunch group. We get a large private room for free - great comfortable atmosphere with privacy and very good food. The service is excellent and the prices are certainly fair. By comparison, we have met at other restaurants where the competing noise level of nearby non-meeting customers detracts... More

Usually, we get Mimi's Cafe to go. They serve "American" food (i.e., pot roast, chicken pot pie, etc.) Their food has some flavor but not that much. If our family is ill, we will get dishes from Mimi's and maybe that's why we don't think it's very flavorful because our taste buds were compromised.

I thought the food was well prepared and the staff friendly. The wait was only about 20 minutes at noon on a Sunday. I had the chicken cordon bleu sandwich, which was moist and well prepared.
