Driving south on I-95 through Maryland, we discovered charming Mimi's Cafe, Exit 41 (west), in Elkridge. The sign beckoned to us from a hill above the access road and we easily found it in a shopping center on our right. We were welcome by friendly staff. The French ambiance with red decor and French music playing in the background quickly... More

My husband and I ate at Mimi's the other night and we both had quiche. I had quiche Lorraine and he had quiche Florentine. It was very good and served with fresh salad. We also had the tomato basil soup as a first course. It was a little spicy and perfect on a chilly fall evening. Mimi's has an extensive... More

Not a typical Food Chain Operation. We went there for lunch had the Fish & Chips , Kish, Pumpkin Soup & Desert. The atmosphere is friendly & Warm with tasty Good Food. it replaces Home Cooking at reasonable prices. We have been there before recommend the dinner entrees, Pot Roast, Meat Loaf etc. Enjoy you will not be disappointed!

We did not have to wait to be seated at 10am on a Wednesday. Our server was great, friendly and attentive. Drinks were brought right away, as were our huge, delicious muffins. Coffee was excellent, my carrot raisin muffin was full of walnuts, my guest had the bran muffin with honey and butter. Both were wonderful. Our breakfasts came quickly,... More

We like this place for brunch, good food and good pastries, don't like the wait to be seated though - they have a large selection of breakfast items with a Louisiana twist to the decor of the restaurant.

I went here on a Sunday afternoon and did not have to wait to be seated. They also have call ahead seating. I ordered the strawberry and cream mini waffles and they were really good. The service was just OK. After our food was delivered to the table we didn't see the waitress until we were almost finished eating. I... More

My Mom chose to go here for her birthday dinner. The server (Collin) made her feel very special & couldn't have done any more for us. The food took a little while to arrive but was worth it. The turkey & gravy is always good. The chicken pot pie was like home made. The brulee cheesecake was yummy, as was... More

Mimi's is really trying to get it right. They have a beautiful restaurant with lots of personality. The new menu is offers ample choice for most. We had Coq Au Vin, a burger and Chicken Parm. All were tasty. Of course we started with a cup of signature chicken corn chowder. Yum!

Called in reservations on a Friday night at 7:30. Arrived and found the restaurant not busy, a clue something was not like it has been in the past. They had our table set for 7 and we waited about 10 minutes for our waitress to come over (looked like she had 3 tables). She took our drink order (soda &... More

I just recently visited for a quick breakfast. The decor was beautiful! A lot of nooks and crannies of our booth made me feel like I was in France but other parts felt like a very classy American chain restaurant. And when it all comes down to it....Mimis IS an American chain restaurant and that is what you can expect... More
