Just right for my wife and I.

My wife and I are two retirees, who eat at home 90% of the time, and treat ourselves to a restaurant meal on occasion, usually when some other reason takes us out of the house (doctor appointment, meeting, etc.). Mimi's presents us with a great combination of features. Mimi's is open for all three... read more

Mimi's seems like a nice place but in fact it is a crappy chain restaurant that serves frozen pre prepared entree's that are heated in microwaves. I found that out the hard way. I wanted a steak for dinner and I should have known better because it apparently is a dish to be avoided because their cooks can't get a... More

On a recent stay in Reno, we came across this very good restaurant/cafe and were delighted with the tasty food, the very friendly service and the comfortable, casual environment. We were seated in the dining area decorated with a New Orleans theme and inquired as to the origin, thinking the owners might be from Louisiana. Actually, the owners are from... More

Breaded slices chicken, burned to a dark brown crust in burned grease. Yum! Well that seems to be Mimi's version of Chicken Parmesan. Yuk!

Be sure to order the bread basket. The carrot bread is amazing! I had a bacon burger at Mimi's. It was well prepared, just as ordered. The fries were very good too. All those with me seemed to enjoy their meals. The only problem was that it was freezing! The temp outside was probably 76, but inside, we had cold... More

One day we decided to try this café for breakfast. We did not like the one in San Fernando Valley, CA but thought this might be different. Well it was. What a terrible experience it was. We even told the manager and showed them the food and the omelet. They concurred, and perhaps due to some new cook or whatever.... More

Since we first found Mimi's, several years ago, we have found it to be great choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Their food is of high quality, reasonably priced, and covering a wide variety for varied tastes. There is some French/New Orleans influenced dishes, but the standard American tastes for meat and fish are also met. As a couple of... More

Mimi's serves your basic cafe menu. Its a little bit pricier then a normal cafe. But has a great atmosphere and I had one of the best French Dip sandwiches I have ever had. I will definitely go back.

We enjoyed the chicken pot pie, which was switched back to large pieces of chicken instead of the chunks they were using. It was served hot and was very flavorful. We also had a craft sandwich with corn chowder and a fruit side. The sandwich and chowder were delicious; however, the fruit was watery (it must have come from a... More
