We were looking for a nice lunch place while on the way to San Francisco and found this place near the San Mateo Bridge. Great soup and salad lunch and fried Artichokes as an appetizer, Highly recommend.

I'm normally a fan of Mimi's Cafe. But, I will NEVER go back to the San Mateo Mimi's. I get their eclub coupons online. I do not have a smart phone...but, I do have a phone with a camera. I was told by a Mimi's manager that I could always take a photo of the coupon and show the manager... More

This place has $5.00 Happy Hour Wines, but my favorites are Sparkling Wine Flights. I love the corn chowder soup. The menu has lots of different choices. It's big on the Cajun cooking. I like the variety for the whole family. Nice place to eat when your at the Bridgepoint Shopping Center. Good food. Easy parking, worth the trip

Enjoyed a great healthy lunch on the patio. Quick service. Miguel, our waiter was alert, fast, and friendly. All staff was courteous and polite. We both ate for $10 each and had more than enough. Soup and salad combo great deal.

We were disappointed that we could not get into nearby B.J.'s, which has an excellent reputation. But we were very pleasantly surprised at the excellent cuisine, superb service and value-priced menu at Mimi's Cafe, just next door to B.J.'s. In fact, we were delighted we came here because Mimi's is a quiet, casual place without the noise and crowds of... More

The food choices for vegetarians is limited to salads. I spoke with our waiter and he suggested a chicken pasta dish without the chicken but with extra veggies. It was a good choice and very tasty. The service for our table - party of 6 was slow. Nice ambiance. Over all, the dishes we ordered were quite good. Just be... More

We go there for lunch. The food is always good and there is plenty. If you order a salad get a 1/2 order they are really big. The soups and muffins are real tasty. Service is good. When I've gone for dinner it's been good too. Their portions are big. You could probably share with someone or take it home.

I have been there several times and every one has enjoyed their food. I usually get a salad. They offer 2 sizes but the smaller one is more than enough for me. My husband gets one of thier sandwiches. With the salad you get a huge muffin on the side. The blueberry is dilicious! The location is easy to get... More
