We have eaten at Mimi's many times over the past several years, but within the last year, the food selection and quality have gotten weird and overpriced. My wife and I both ordered one of their new "Frite" entires -- hers with grilled chicken and mine with roasted chicken. We asked the server what "Frite" meant; she said they were... More

We had the new menu item of Mussels and Frites for $11.99 during lunch. The service was good; however, it took a long time to get our food. When it arrived the fries and mussels were only warm, not hot. The "seasoned" fries were bland, and the mussel broth needed some garlic to add flavor. The meal was supposed to... More

We have eaten at Mimi's a few times now. The food is always very good ...the service has been good every time. The atmosphere quite nice. With all of that said,,, this past time was our first time for breakfast and we felt it was over priced. I ordered the Croissant Benedict, and as you can see from the photos,... More

We have dined at Mimi's several times and the food and service have always been good. We had 2 cappuccinos and the lunch choice of 1/2 sandwich and salad. The salads and both sandwiches were very good. I use to like their chicken pot pie; however, they changed the menu and went from big chunks of shredded chicken to pre-diced... More

I'm in between with this one. It was my first time trying this restaurant all together. The prices were not what I expected but I said what the heck if the foods good its worth it. The food was about 50/50. I had the Chicken Parmesan and the Chicken was great, how ever the pasta that was served with it... More

Enjoy eating at Mimi's very much. Their muffins are huge and delicious. The quiche I had was very tasty along with the carrot raisin muffin. Others in our group had the following: Chicken Pot Pie, homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich, and turkey, Brie, and apple sandwich. Hope we can eat there again before we leave the area.

We've eaten at a number of this chain's restaurants and with one exception the food and service have always been great. The exception being the Reno, Nevada operation. Years back the place was great but it went downhill several years ago. We're always seated quickly and sometimes the server is polite and efficient but more often than not the food... More

My first time to a Mimi's. I didn't realize it was a chain. Cute décor, French theme menu & food. Really good breakfast with generous portions for a reasonable price. You can get a muffin instead of toast. That's what I did, I suggest you do too. YUM! It's like dessert with breakfast. My Café Au lait was as good... More

Mimi's is an excellent restaurant for my wife and I, with a wide food selection at reasonable prices. Often they also feature varied discounts if you register your email address. They offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner and all three feature outstanding dish choices. Their homemade muffins are really special.
