Good for family gathering

At Mimi's Café, prices are reasonable, the food is decent, and very good for a large family gathering.. It definitely is more upscale with more ambience and a wider selection of menu items than Denny's or IHOP. Service was very good. There were 9 of us and we ordered a variety of items such as pot... read more

The host told us a 30 minute wait when it looked like there was nobody in the restaurant waiting, I'm assuming he told everyone that because they must of all left thinking it was going to be a 30 minute wait and going to come back then. However, since nobody was there they listed off 6 different groups of people... More

My roommate and I went out for a late dinner - 8:00 p.m. last night and he had a coupon for Mimi's so we went there. He ordered the Steak & Frites, I ordered 1/2 Chicken & Frites, but since I didn't want fries I asked what other options were available, I decided on the mashed potatoes. My food was... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere, and the bread was delicious. I didn't try the wine because I don't drink anymore but others at the table said they were good and quite a variety. The only drawback was the long wait during Sundays and Holidays (2 hours on Mother's Day). But the food is excellent as is the service.

good food and nice family place to eat. Cozy little place with good and fast staff. Server was good and food was good too. Wait time was a little long for a weekend afternoon but i guess they are doing it right if that many people want to eat there

Mimi's Cafe recently re-branded itself as a "French Inspired Bistro" and their updated menu now includes some "French" dishes like Steak Frites, Meyer Lemon Mussels & Frites, and Baked Brie with French baguette crostinis. On our most recent visit for breakfast, we ordered the Smoked Salmon Benedict (cold smoked Norwegian salmon with poached eggs, diced red onions, capers and Hollandaise)... More

I am so happy Mimi's is here in Santa Clarita. I love this place. It was one of the last places my late mother enjoyed a meal with the family. I have been there for meetings, date-nights, breakfast, lunch and dinner -- always great food with an authentic atmosphere.

Traveling home from Los Angeles to NorCal with 2 of my girls. I had a coupon for a free entrée and wanted something good and filling, not fast food for the long ride. We were seated quickly. It was a Wed evening and not busy, but not empty. I've been to this, and other, Mimi's before, and I like Mimi's... More

I have visited Mimi's on numerous occasions when visiting Valencia. They never disappoint, whether eating in or taking out. Lately, I have enjoyed sitting at the bar watching their TV and sipping a drink while waiting for take out. They have always been accommodating and welcoming. The food choices are varied enough to satisfy everyone in our large family including... More
