Mimis for Breakfast; yes....

Mimi's has a large variety at breakfast, home baked carrot muffins and reasonable prices. I have not been there for other meals.

We were just 10 people, but we were seated away from the large dining rooms with some degree of privacy, we each ordered our own luch from the menu, and we had a lovely afternoon. The servers were pleasant, friendly, and attentive. I have no idea how crowded the rest of the restaurant was, but we were oblivious to the... More

My parents wantes to order their chicken pot pie, but the waiter told us it will take 30 minutes. He asked at least 3x if we're sure we want to wait 30 minutes for... More

The food was delicious and very well made. (For appetizers try the seven meatballs). Food was made quickly and our hostess Marisol was... More

The service and the prices were very good. The food came quickly to the table and was quite satisfying. This was one of the better restaurants in the Mimi's chain.

I had a Cobb salad, which was very good but way to big for me. I could only eat half. All of their salads are great but big. My husband had the pot pie which was also very good and big. The only complaint I have is why do restaurants feel they have to fill the pepper shakers over the... More

On a long layover at San Francico, we called our longtime friends in Atherton to pick us up and have breakfast at a good place in town. They took us here. Great food, great prices, great service, great atmosphere....have I convinced you yet...don't know what else to say.

We came in after the lunch rush. They had a good selection in their menu. The combination sandwich & salad worked best for us. Minimum wait. Service could have been better though. Took long for refills on our drinks.

Mimi's is our "go-to-place" for any meal any time. We like the chicken chopped salad and the burgers and their fabulous muffins. The chicken in wine sauce with steamed vegetables and mashed potatoes will warm you up and feed your soul Always great service
