This location must get a lot of referred business due to Olive Garden's wait time and the fact they won't take reservations. Olive Garden was my brother-in-law's original plan. But we walked across the parking lot to Mimi's and were seated immediately. We were visiting family in Visalia and it was a also a reunion of sorts with 2 of... More

Wonderful, friendly staff! I don't think the food is superb, but it is good and the portions are more than sufficient. EXCELLENT YUMMY bread! Their sparkling wine with strawberry lemonade is very good! We were very lucky and the restaurant wasn't too busy, so we were able to stay a while and catch up on family news.

Our relative who lives in Hanford recommended Mimi's Café. We arrived early, about 5:30 PM and were seated immediately. One of our party of four had a glass of house chardonnay. Wine was a "special" at $5/glass. Two of us had the meatloaf (recommended by our waitress) and two of us had the pot roast. All meals were very good.... More

We were among the last people to be seated for a late supper after a very long day of driving (400 miles) across Mojave Desert. We are sure that the waitress (Diane?) was eager to call it quits for the day but she gave us outstanding cheerful service. The food was very good and they have half price on drinks... More

We went to Mimi's for dinner at another couple's suggestion. I have never been a fan of Mimi's, but we agreed to go. As is always true at any Mimi's, the decor is fabulous. And the menu is also exceptional. The dishes look amazing on the menu, and are well described, making my taste buds crave the dish. The service... More

We have a Mimi's Café here in Fresno, but it's not as big/nice as the one in Visalia! I was surprised at how big it was! The food was good, but not excellent. They kept forgetting to bring the basket of bread out while we waited for our breakfast order. The staff was very nice, though.

I had eaten at a Mimi's Cafe before and really liked it. It had been a while since then and so I was expecting another good meal. But the menu had changed and did not have as much to choose from as previously. I was not that impressed with the food or the service.

Had a small family dinner and everyone enjoyed their meal. Nice menu but the selections seemed to be less than on previous visits. The waiter was on top of everything.

Our visit to Mimi's here in Visalia is always one to look forward to. Hot fresh bread with well priced meals and service. Although our last visit had a few issues... One of the rooms they wanted to seat us in was so cold it felt like a refrigerator and it seems they had some new staff that needed extra... More
