"Eating At Mimi's Cafe"

We enjoyed our lunch. Handicap accessible. Host was friendly. Waitress was kind. My daughter is allergic to turkey. When we ordered the REUBAN sandwich, we did not see the turkey as the meat. When we got the order the waitress told us to enjoy our turkey sandwich. We apologize for the... read more

This is one of my fathers favorite restaurants. We gathered there for his 92nd birthday. The food was incredibly bland and lack luster, and the service was even worse. It took forever for the server to even take our order, and then he got it all wrong. We timed it...It took 30 minutes to get our food out. And even... More

Food. Plain. Simple. Delicious. Reliable. Clean. Cheap. Perfectly fine. The service was very good. Young and old people both. Special parking places for a pre-ordered food pick-up, almost a drive-through, except the wide selection of soups, chili and other dishes is quite nice for the convenience of lunchtime get-back-to-the-office. I was expecting less and really was surprised. Not a pizzaz... More

Too many mistakes, ran out of food,and not the quality or value of years past. Mimi's was the "go to" place for our family. Now not so much. My kids grew up going to Mimi's and it is sad to see the new owners not "get" the Mimi's magic.

I have tried dining in and take out at this Mimi's and I much prefer take out. The food is delicious so that keeps me coming back, but the service is VERY slow for dining in, so I usually get the food to go. Their corn chowder is SO good, and their nut bread is special. I had a sauced... More

I see more seniors here than young people. The menu has some good and and bad items. I like the corn chowder and broccoli cheese soup. I like the variety of breads they serve before you order. Their grand blue burger is good, but I'm not crazy about their pastas. Service depends on who is waiting on you. We've had... More

Mimi's in Upland has not been the best in recent visits. They just don't seem to get their act together and perhaps it is because there is not much new and the staff has a indifferent attitude. As people say" it is what it is" but that doesn't make it a prime destination. With the limited choices in Upland it... More

We enjoy the ambiance when we go to Mimi's. The food is great and the service is good. They're always trying new things on the menu. I had the French toast once and liked it a lot. Another time I went with friends from work and had the french onion soup which was good. All in all we go to... More

Our first visit to a Mimi's Cafe ever! This was an unexpected pleasant visit. The food, service and atmosphere was great! We sat outside as it was a lovely evening which later became a bit cool. My husband had a Chicken & Artichoke Penne Pasta dish which is said was incredibly delicious and light. I had the Meatloaf with smashed... More
