Mimi's is that place you can always go to and get consistent service and great food! You can't go wrong with anything you get. The bakery items are always fresh and tasty. The Mimosa's with all of the variety of flavor combinations are wonderful! I had the mango and couldn't stop with one. The french toast is ok, just ask... More

Celebrated my birthday with family. The service was good. The food was fine. I enjoyed my meal but had hoped for more variety in the menu. The restaurant seemed to cater to a more mature customer base. It was quiet.

We liked the baked brie appetizer, but everything else was mediocre. Had the Fish & Chips - the chips were soft/soggy; the Chicken Crepes - sauce was not great; the Stew - seemed small, but my in-law liked it. Wouldn't be my first choice for a return visit.

Great place to have breakfast. The lunch however is pretty standard. Moderately priced, so you won't go broke eating there.

We were a large party of 19 for lunch. We had reservations and we were seated promptly in a separate room. Our waitress was nice, but it took 20 minutes just to get our beverages. Then she disappeared (again) and we had to wait for her to finally take our orders. The food was okay, but a little bland. Portions... More

My wife and I ate at Mimi's last night and had great meals. We had a very good experience - fast service, excellent food and reasonable prices. Long ago Mimi's used to have a "New Orleans" theme to their menu but it has changed to a more upscale American/French orientation. Within the last year we have eaten at three other... More

our waiter was excellent and the food was rather tasty as well. All that was missing was a showcase of their delicious fresh pastries

I went with my girlfriend for lunch. We were promptly seated. My girlfriend ordered a sourdough bacon avocado burger and received a hamburger. I ordered some sort of crepe which was Ok, but my salad was swimming in dressing. Both orders took an extraordinary amount of time to come out. On the plus side the waitresses were polite and friendly.
