Good Food but Long Wait

The food is good. We go for brunch and have tried the French toast and the egg sandwiches. A bit pricey and the service is okay, not great, but good. If you go during the week, the service is much better.

I happened upon Mimi's while getting my car fixed. I ordered the Farmhouse Tacos from the breakfast menu. Delicious! I am normally not a fan of spicy foods, but t his dish takes you right to the edge without over doing it. Everything is in this dish, sausage, bacon, potatoes eggs (I ordered without the eggs) green peppers, red onions,... More

Just had lunch here to reconnect with an old colleague. He suggested the place, so I was expecting something a bit...nicer. No real complaints overall, just nothing overwhelming in good or bad to say. The service was great. Our server was friendly, attentive, knew when to check-in and when to let us be. As for the food, it was just... More

This review combines my many visits going to this Mimi's over the past few years. The food almost always good or very good. They are usually busy, except for breakfast. Our favorite meals are breakfast and lunch. The menu is constantly being refreshed. Their muffins are wonderful, always warm and delicious. The only sour spot is that the breakfast potatoes... More

Great find on our last evening in the area - wished we had found it sooner. Food was excellent, large portions so go hungry! Best waitress was Elizabeth, who turned out to have a connection to the same town in MA that some of our group live in - small world! The warm Carrot/Raisin bread is fabulous and we got

We've enjoyed the Mimi's Cafe in Folsom, California, on many occasions. Thus we had high expectations for our Sunday afternoon family dinner here. Service was good, wine list was adequate, and they have a full bar. However, my chicken pot pie had obviously been frozen and reheated - it was not hot. My wife's quiche was the same. Can they...

Been here a few time. Was good but this visit will be the last. The server did well with refills but failed on almost everything else. When I received my meal I made it half way through my beef roast to find the center still frozen. They did try to remake it for me however they wasted my lunch period... More

I should have learned by now but, I think I'll finally be taking Mimi's off my list. I'm surprised that a place like this can survive in what appears to be a prime location. We've been to this location several times and largely had the same experience in terms of the cuisine. *** Decor - Mimi's is a chain that... More

Went for lunch with a co-worker. Never had been here before. I ordered the French Dip and it was spot on. No complaints from me.

It takes a lot for me to write a negative review...that being said we should have left when the hostess told us 40min. wait but ended up waiting longer (75 min.) and the table they sat us at had been available for at least 30 min (we could see it from where we were waiting for a table!) Once we... More
