We had breakfast here on Sunday and were reminded how much we love it. If you are a breakfast person, this is the place for you! They have an awesome breakfast sandwich. The crème brulee French toast is amazing (though decadent). They do a great omelet and their eggs benedict is awesome. We even love their toast!! Can you tell... More

Went for lunch with a group of friends. Very nice outdoor seating. Great tea and coffee. Food was very good. No reservation so we did have to wait awhile. Looking forward to trying dinner there soon.

Was excited to try this French Cafe. I walked by it so many times on Del Mar. Was a bit disappointed with the food. The French Onion Soup was great, so was my Mimosa drink! Not cheap either. Nice outside seating!

Plan to come here in the evening. The lines for Saturday and Sunday brunch are very long. Even with the cool evening breezes, the out side dining is heated. The Duck, Lamb, Beef, and Short Ribs are all wonderful. And of course, desert.

By wife and I went here for dinner the night before Mother's Day. I love the restaurant ambiance -- very French casual! The wine was very good. The food -- just OK. My wife asked for her steak medium and it came well done. My halibut seemed a bit over cooked. Caesar salads seemed to be missing any dressing at... More

Sunday breakfast is the best. Home-made banana bread is to die for. Food is exceptional as is the service. A bit pricey but well worth it.

I wish all cafes in Paris were smokeless, but that is pipe dream for me. Aside from my hopes and dreams of future visits to Paris, it is nice to know that we have the flavor and the flare of Paris in our backyard. The staff is great and the food is full of flavor. It is a great place... More

My lady and I stopped at Cafe Mimosa on the way to our beach house and had a great breakfast this morning! A great selection of mimosas and our personal recommendations are the Chorizo scramble and the traditional Benedict! Antoine and Vincent always make us feel very welcome! Merci Beaucoup!!!
