Good Comfort Food

Food is good. Service is slow. I have liked everything that I have had there, except their Rueben Sandwich, it was just wrong. It was not made with corned beef or anything that is close. I think they use a lot of products that have Soy in them. So if you are intolerant to, as I am, BE CAREFUL... read more

We have visited Mimi's on a few different occasions and never had a meal we really enjoyed, but I had not been for lunch, so we made the mistake of visiting again. Portion sizes were good, but service was slow and hard to find and the food was just mediocre. I have learned my lesson.

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.
