Actually somewhere between average and very good

We ordered lunch - a Mediterranean Chicken Salad and a turkey and brie sandwich. The sandwich was a croissant with turkey, brie and sliced granny smith apples. The turkey was good - not sliced lunch meat, actual roasted turkey but there were too many apples and there was no sauce of any kind on... read more

Stopped in for some comfort food while shopping after a snowfall. We were not disappointed. The corn chowder was warm & tasty. The bread basket complemented it perfectly. The turkey & gravy is the ultimate comfort food & was delicious. The Mediterranean salad was fresh & very tasty. The apple cider/oatmeal muffin was more like a dessert. Speaking of dessert...the...

We ordered our dinner on New Year's Eve as we make our way south from Massachusetts to Florida. This was our first visit there and I was quite impressed with the cleanliness of the restaurant and the friendliness of the staff. Stacey took our order and went out of her way to make everything perfect. We selected the French pot... More

The croissant was excellent. Enjoyed my fruit berry mimosa. My sour dough toast wasn't even toasted. My sante fe omelette was over cooked, my potatoes were over cooked and were visually unappealing. The sunny side eggs were crispy around the edges. The banana pancakes were small but good. I won't go there again.

Service was uneven. Waitress could not remember all our requests. Food was not very tasty. Only got two thin slices of turkey. Usually get five thick slices. Also the salad had the wrong dressing. Pumpkin pie was tasteless. They said we could have an order of fish when we made the reservation, but when we got there, they said no.... More

My friend and I enjoyed a peaceful, delicious lunch in late October. While I enjoyed a West Coast Reuben sandwich and a house salad, she dined on a Mediterranean salad and a large carrot raisin muffin. Richard was our attentive server and he inquired about our needs often. The lunch was leisurely enjoyed because we spent much time talking. Never... More

Service was slow and my salmon had no flavor. I ordered dessert which tasted unusual but that was the first crepe cake so I thought that was normal...ended up with food poisoning :(

Over the past year; we have eaten at Mimi's five times and the food has been very good and has also been sub-par. Seems that something has happened and the quality is definitely lacking. The servers are friendly, but the food took a long time to arrive today. Eggs Benedict was good; but the potatoes I got as a side... More

Was here with a friend for breakfast with a coupon. The.best part of this visit was the use of the coupon but that was it. I found the food, service and atmosphere was average. Nothing special about this place and my review here reflects my visit here.
