Very good breakfast

The coffee is better than most. Muffins are excellent. The orange creme brioche French Toast is very good and so are the potatoes. The eggs tend to be dry at times and the prices are a little high, vut those are the only negatives. One of my go-to places for breakfast.

We have been going to Mimi's quite often after church ever since it opened. We especially liked the quiche, the warm muffins, the mimosas and the friendly, professional staff. After today's visit, we won't be going back anytime soon. I can't fault the waiter. He was friendly and clearly did his best. However, the waitstaff apparently no longer wears their... More

Just came from a breakfast and all of the entrees were at least $10 dollars. Come on, 3 pancakes for $10.00?????? Added to that, the service was not very good. We had to ask for coffee each time we wanted a refill. There are a whole lot better places that cost a lot less.

Used to love Mimi's for breakfast or brunch. Their quiche Lorraine is still good; but, the portion is markedly smaller and the entrée itself used to come with fruit and delicious red potato "breakfast" potatoes with a nice display on the plate (greens or something decorative with the fruit.) Now the small quiche comes on a big giant plate with... More

our second visit here, not a disappointment The decorating style is NY French. Beautiful and clean.. we devoured the corned beef benedict and ham and Swiss crepes with herb roasted potatoes.. the potatoes were crispy brown on the outside and perfectly done on the inside. The food was fresh and hot.. great coffee.. good service.. plenty of parking .. reasonable... More

My brothers and I ended up going twice to this place during our trip, that's as good as this place was for breakfast! I still remember the flavor of my egg's benedict ;-) don't miss it! Service was superb! The second day we took our brother that was on wheel chair, the staff helped to ensure we had the right... More

Real friendly atmosphere with a great décor. Menu is substantial and they always have coupons that make the bill very easy to afford. Service is good along with good tasting food, at a reasonable price.

Went to this restaurant for Easter Sunday breakfast with my wife and we had the worst experience ever! We arrived at about 8:20 AM and promptly gave our breakfast order. There appeared to be only one waitress for the section we were in. As we waited about an hour for our breakfast, we observed other employees coming in to help... More

Mostly French items on the menu. Very neat atmosphere. Prices are great. My meal was a bit overcooked but the manager handled it appropriately without me having to ask for the manager. I view it as an incidental and it would not prevent me from returning. Things happen but it was handled professionally. My husband raved about his meal. Our... More

Went here for dinner. Very nice food and a good size portion. Staff is very friendly and our waiter knew the menu and was very good with answering our questions. Drinks were always full and the decor is very nice. Restaurant was spotless! !
