After reading the other reviews of this place, I was reluctant to try it, but I'm glad I did. I also wondered if it was too high class for me, and it wasn't--there were kids for weekend breakfast/lunch, and, for some odd reason, several young men, not in the same party, wearing their ball caps backwards. Set back from the... More

On July 17, 2014 we had our 50th anniversary party a Mimi's. We highly recommend this establishment, the food is great the staff is excellent. We had 90 guests and we all had a great time. Would highly recommend Mimi's for any occasion

I ate there once for breakfast, which was ok but not memorable. My daughter and I went there for dinner Friday evening and it was very disappointing. I had the French onion soup and a French dip. Soup was ok but I had to send it back to get the cheese crispy on top. The au ju for the dip... More

I liked Mimi's when it first opened and I think it has not been cleaned since. Went in with my 92 year old mother for a nice light lunch after shopping and the hostess seated us where we could see inside the kitchen and if my mom would have sat down in her white pants, she would have had coffee...

We happened upon Mimi's Cafe Ocala as we were looking for a Panera Bread, heading home to GA from a FL vacation, and boy were we pleasantly surprised! Having never visited a Mimi's before, the bread basket won us over and the service and food finished us off. Terrific service, and I mean terrific! Amazing crepes, amazing muffins, kids loved...

Tried to eat at this restaurant last night, but although their sign clearly stated that they were open until 9 pm, at 8:35 the door was locked and the two workers inside merely stared at us as we peeked through the glass. It was evident that they were cleaning up and leaving early- equaling a missed opportunity for them to... More

We have visited this restaurant twice in the past few months, meeting relatives are we head back to our home in Florida. Overall it is good food with good size portions. My biggest challenge has been attempting to stay on the healthy side of meals. This last visit I opted for a salad which was large and tasty. Others in... More

Wanted to like this place as it's rarely crowded for breakfast. Guess that say something. We gave it 2 tries for breakfast, but both times we waited close to an hour for our meals, despite there be 5+ servers and only a few tables occupied. Once out order was taken, we received coffee rather quickly. We requested water as well,... More

My wife and I have passed this restaurant on dozens of occasions. Yesterday we stopped and we are glad we did. We had two soups, a sandwich and the sole dinner. Followed it up with coffee and bread pudding. I can honestly say that I would not change any item. They were all very good. Top the food off with... More

Almost every time we made the 45 mile jaunt to Ocala to shop we stopped at Mimi's for lunch. The food was good, good selection, calories indicated for some items. The last 2 times we have been there the salads were far from what we expected based on past experience and no more calorie counts. We are now looking for... More
