An above average cafe.

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.

Waitress was friendly and smiled. Service was quick and food was delicious. Went for breakfast and no waiting. Would return.

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

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

My friend surprised me with a visit to Mimi's. Had the Salmon served on a bed of freshly sautéed spinach. About the best I've had. You can substitute the fries for salad to make a beautiful meal.

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
