Upscale eatery

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.

I enjoyed the service, the waitress was very attentive to us. The food was just average. I had Steak medium well, which was very chewy. Bread was delicious. Would try again.

Wonderful place full of great décor and bountiful menu. Food is very enjoyable and at a very reasonable price. Breakfast is served all day which is great especially if your out shopping early and missed the a.m. wakeup meal.

Service was to be expected for a busy Sunday brunch. Nothing to complain or brag about there. We ate outside. One of the patio umbrellas was being held together with tape. My cinnamon roll was great. My friends son got chocolate chip pancakes they looked delicious. The table was being supported by bill books. So for the price point of... More

We recently ate at Mimi's for the first time and the service was unmatched. From the time we walked through the front door, we were given the red carpet treatment. The food was good, but the menu selection was slightly limited. The prices for dinner were slightly high for what you got, but the food was delicious. The atmosphere was... More

Several years ago my dear friend near Cary took me to Mimi's for lunch. I so fell in love with this classic, American version of a quaint french restaurant that I am still googling everywhere we visit to find another Mimi's. I guess I will have to come back and insist on lunch again. I really liked the place. It... More
