I have frequented MIMI'S for many years. Their food is fresh and tasty and the service is excellent. It is a great family restaurant, has an extensive menu, full bar, charming décor. I love going there. It's good family fare. I think you'll be delighted with your experience there.

Mimi's Restaurant. They have two locations in the Coachella Valley - Rancho Mirage on Highway 111 (across from The River) and the other located in La Quinta - in the same area as Costco. The meal offerings are the same as is the service - Excellent! Like we knew growing up in Minneapolis. We both especially like their Roasted Turkey... More

I have been to several of these restaurants, and what I like the most, is I know what to expect. The service was excellent, the food exactly what I ordered, and the price reasonable. Regardless of your food preferences or dietary restrictions, there is something for everyone at Mimi's Café, and if you don't find what you are looking for,... More

Mimi's is a chain restaurant, but they have the down home comfort food cooking many of us grew up eating. Meatloaf, short ribs, burgers, etc. and of course those wonderful Mimi's muffins. Look for their specials once in a while, that offer a free breakfast, lunch or dinner entree with purchase of 1 & 2 beverages. Good value with or... More

We used to go to Mimi's for breakfast on a regular basis. However, something has changed in the past year and the last few times we've eaten there, things have gone downhill. The servers are still friendly, but except for one senior waitress at breakfast, the others are not as efficient. Food seems to take a long time to arrive... More

I have enjoyed Mimi's in the past but not this time. The place was not clean and our server at 7:15 A.M had on a dirty shirt. My breakfast tomato juice was not drinkable. The salt shaker was encrusted and sticky. Thankfully I was able to eat the quiche. Not sure if I would return....

After arriving in Palm Springs we headed in our rental car to La Quinta where we were visiting. We were really hungry upon arriving so we were looking for restaurants to sit down and eat. We spotted Mimi's and I fell in love with the outside of the building. We thought "that looks like a cool place" so we decided... More

Mimi's was within walking distance of where we were staying, It was a nice place to have breakfast. The coffee was okay and the food was very good, The menu had lots of things to choose from.. I don't think I'd necessarily want to go there for dinner but for breakfast or lunch it's a fine choice.

We decided to eat here before heading to the airport. The service was great and the food was really good. It was good portions and filled us up. We decided on breakfast choices and i have to say, that may be the best french toast I've ever had at a restaurant. I would highly recommend eating here.
