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

Admittedly, we were at this restaurant on Mother's Day, but, multiple problems happened. The wrong food, ill prepared, was true for 3 out of 4 of us. I ordered an appetizer only- I am gluten free so my choices were very limited, (baked Brie on an apple slice- minus the French baguette) & they brought me a tiny slice of... More

We have been eating at Mimi's several times a year since it opened and have always enjoyed it. This year we made reservations for Easter dinner. The first thing I noticed was that it wasn't as crowded as it has been on previous holidays when we have eaten there. After being seated we were handed a "Easter menu" which was... More

We have enjoyed going to Mimi's for several years, but they seem to be in a decline. Minimal breakfast traffic on weekends. Not sure about rest of the time. Menu changes not improvements. Their wine prices have always been unreasonable, and now they are doing Happy Hour for $5 glasses of wine, which they probably paid $5/bottle. This morning we... More

This place is great, a little tucked away, but if you are looking for authentic French Cuisine, in Central Florida, this is the place. The Boulabaise (forgive my spelling) was exceptional. I was on a business lucnh so could not partake of the free glass of wine they offered us on arrival. Great looking bar area also. Highy recommend.
