Enjoyable service and food

Enjoyed an evening with family (the couples) but saw several younger families, too. The food was delicious by all accounts.

On our first visit we ate with two friends on a Thursday evening and were desperate for sustenance at the end of a long and tiring day. The place was virtually deserted when we arrived at just after 8:00 pm and yet the food was a long time in coming. One wonders how the waiting time can be longer when... More

I like Mimis because it's usually quiet and more relaxing - a nice change from the large amounts of noisy children and huge families you encounter here in Utah. It's a great place to go for a business or casual lunch with friends. I love the French Onion Soup!

Nice to have a down home cafe and bakery in town that specializes in good food and excellent service. Several dishes were ordered and all were enjoyed. The muffins and breads were a real treat, too.

I went here for lunch with my two sons and a friend during her lunch break, we ordered and 30 minutes later still didn't have any food. They brought my young sons chicken and said our would be right out. 10 minutes later still nothing, we flagged down someone to get our waitress and she went and checked and then... More

Took my granddaughter there. She had burger that was good and big. I had corn chowder and grilled cheese. Also had blueberry muffin...more like cake...excellent. Service good but overall experience, just so-so. If you have another choice, you might want to take it.

I've eaten at Mimi's a few times and it's been ok. The last time, though, my daughter and I ate here and it didn't go so well; my daughter's dish was improperly cooked and tasted worse. The wait staff had a replacement fired fairly quickly, and it was fine, but there really wasn't any acknowledgement that our meal was screwed... More

I stopped here for breakfast because I saw it has Eggs Benedict. I won't bother next time. The potatoes were some kind of odd, small, half-round things that looked deep-fried but were quite mushy in the center. I didn't like them at all. The Hollandaise sauce had a strange, thick, almost rough texture and lacked taste. I'm guessing it came... More

I tried to eat there I really did attempted to order the chicken cheddar mac at 545 pm and was told they were out. I then attempted to order a beer only to be told they were out of that beer. I also had a very long wait before the waiter made first contact with me.

I just went there for breakfast with my wife.It took 10 minutes just to get seated & they weren't even very busy. It was some of the slowest service we have ever had. It took over an hour from ordering until we received our food & my wife's coffee to get refilled. We normally go to Village Inn on Sunday... More
