Tasty Lunch but Too Long a Wait

Four of us stopped by Mimi's for lunch. The hostess said there would be a 20-25 minute wait (although there were quite a few empty tables). There were several tables in the bar are so we asked to be seated there and were immediately accommodated. Our drink order was taken immediately and five to... read more

After checking out of our hotel, we drove around looking for a place to have a late breakfast; it was going on 11am. We stumbled upon Mimi's Cafe and were pleasantly surprised at how nicely decorated this restaurant was. We ordered the Sausage & Eggs meal with a side order of Griddlecakes. The food arrived quickly and was fresh and... More

Went to Mimi's for lunch on a Monday. Arrived by noon. Walked out at 1pm unfed. This was my second time to this restaurant, had a similarly long wait a few months ago. So if you have no where to go and all day to get there, maybe this is a great choice. If you are eating with a diabetic,... More

They have the most phenomenal grilled cheese sandwich, I have tried to recreate this masterpiece and can't do it. The service is great, the atmosphere is comfortable elegance. Definitely a go to spot for a wonderful meal anytime.

My husband and I went to dinner at Mimi's Café last night and it was terrible, after placing the order we waited 50 minutes for our meal . I ordered roast chicken with fries, and the whole meal came to the table so cold that I requested to speak to the Manager, who offered to make me a new dinner,... More

We went here for Valentine's Day, Gus ordered the Valentine Special - steak and I, of course, had their French Onion Soup--which I love. Gus' steak was so tough he could not eat it, but he tried. He told our waitress that it was inedible because it was so tough and difficult to cut, so he then ordered their fish... More

We hadn't been traveling this way in a couple of years and almost didn't stop in with the reviews saying it had changed, was noisy and had bad service. Boy am I glad we ignored them and came back again. We didn't have to wait to get in and the carpeting, curtains and multi tiered ceiling kept noise levels down... More

Open the front door at lunch time and the atmosphere is like walking into a surprise party. From outside not expecting everything to be perfection.The decor was not average and gave the room nice ambience. The booths were wide and comfortable. The place was packed so there was an expected wait. The wait was well worth it. The chicken avocado... More

Food was just ok, overpriced. It was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think. This was supposed to be "special treat" from my father. I didn't want to spoil it for him by walking out. But, will not be back, way, way too loud. When talking to other individuals, they also said they have had this experience.

I should begin this review by saying that I've eaten here three times so far and want to give it better than a 3 rating, but can't. Pro's: Decent Atmosphere, Food Cons: Service (all 3 trips involved waits longer than was necessary once seated and led to the "forgotten about" feeling which is awkward.)
