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.

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! !

Finally a nice place to enjoy any meal anytime, for a very reasonable price. Never had a bad meal, and they always have great deals.

This was my third visit to Mimi's French Cafe with each visit occurring in a different city. Each visit, the food has been exceptionally good. Here, I mean that the food appears to have been cooked by an expert that imparted their skill and learning in both the appearance and taste. No heavy sauces or seasoning to masquerade inferior meat... More

We were first introduced to Mimi's Cafe in Orlando, FL (see my separate review for that location) and were pleased to see we had one close to home. We enjoyed our Orlando visit and Cary was no different. Breakfast is great - lots of vegetarian options. Hubby and I shared an egg white omelet with goat cheese and veggies, toast,... More

The one star is for the decent food, hardly worth the money. Our server who was working the bar section didn't bother to even introduce herself to my wife and I. After we waited for 15min for a menu, she came by and half-assed the service. We had to ask on two different occasions other waiters to help us -... More

The staff was wonderful, and very patient. Even though everybody didn't show up they still let us have the whole room. Marcus our server was very helpful in everything. Thanks for being kind and being patient with us. Wonderful restaurant. Will recommend to others, coming back next week to eat.
