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.

We had not been here in a few years and it was just as I had remembered. Service was great, got seated immediately on a Saturday night. Not sure why someone thought this was a French restaurant. They serve down home, good ole comfort food. Very tasty. I did get the Chicken Pot pie and it was delicious. It not... More

Mimi's is not a French restaurant. Keep to what you are good at - comfort food not some pseudo French dishes. Terrible food other than the chicken pot pie. Go back or lose your customers

I've been going to Mini''s Cafe for years and have noticed a slow decline.Their menu has very much been abbreviated as has portion size. On my last (and probably final) visit I order the Bouillabaisse, one of the more expensive items on their lunch menu. Although it contained the shrimp, mussels and scallops it was described to have, the shrimp... More

When I am in Reno, I always go to Mimi's at least once. Why? The food is good and also consistant. There is a lot of it so I almost always have some to take back to my condo. The prices are reasonable for the choices and the staff is courteous. I also love their tomato-basil soup which I can... More
