Good food but average service

I visited this restaurant on two different occasions - once for breakfast and once for lunch. The website indicated they open for breakfast at 7 a.m. but the date I was there they did not open until 7:05 a.m. Another person waiting indicated it is hit or miss. If a place advertises they open at... read more

That's what I ordered and it was a fantastic combination - Mimi's bakes their own breads, rolls and pies - it is a cozy place...it even had a fire going in the Reception/Lobby area. The service was a little lax, but the food certainly made up for it. It's a sure bet when in the area for sumptuous breakfast.

We came to Mimi’s by chance after failing to locate another restaurant. Nice off street parking with an ample sized lot. Our greeter was pleasant and welcoming, seating us immediately. The décor was pleasing and comfortable with the premises spotlessly clean. Our waiter was very courteous helped with recommendations. My wife had one of the salads which was fresh and... More

This is a great choice for lunch or a light dinner. Food was fresh and hot. Service was crisp and friendly without constant interruptions. Price was reasonable.

Tastes like your mother made or maybe in some cases better. Good sized servings, which for us means we take some home. We usually cone here in January and always have at least one or meals here. Servers are always friendly and efficient.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, but I have to say the food was not great. I had the waffles with apples and bacon and they were DRIPPING with syrup...almost inedible...and the flavor was not that great. I ate 1/2 but only because I was hungry...But because the staff was so nice I might go back and try something... More

I really don't know if you should review a restaurant when they are spot on or having a bad day and see how they recover. I have really enjoyed their food and ambiance in the past, but today was terrible. That's why they get a "C." It's an inexpensive choice. Inexpensive restaurants in Rancho Mirage are rare.

Was surprised by this restaurant. A lot like Carrows or Dennys. Service was a little lacking, not very attentive. Food was good.

Great atmosphere and service. They have great salads, though oddly they come with a muffin on the side (?). Went with a group of 6, and everyone really enjoyed their food. A solid choice for a good meal.

Cute, not like a sit down restaurant, but cute, quick easy food. Been here several times watched it change over the last few years into a better eating experience.
