“Our "Go To" place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

When we're not sure where to go, Mimi's. For a wonderful eggs benedict, Mimi's. To be pampered, Mimi's. Perhaps we've been going here for so long, manager recognizes me, probably not by name, but by just being me and always checks to see how we're doing. Soups are worth the trip alone, and the carrot raisin bread as well. Only was unhappy once, and we were more than compensated for our inconvenience. Keep on doing what you're doing, Mimi's.

“Good Breakfast, high price though”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I've gone to Mimi's over many years, and usually pleased with the service and quality of the food, Over the years, they have changed, they used to offer a very good orange juice with breakfast, then they changed to a cheaper, watered down juice, now they don't offer it with the meal. The amount of food is okay, this mornings meal included an omelet, some potatoes, a nicely made muffin, and coffee .. for 12.86 the plating lacks any garnishment, like a little fruit would be nice, but oh well. I give it three stars because other restaurants serve a more complete breakfast for less, or the same price. I overheard a discussion between two servers, they were serving hot coco, one said that he approached management about the change that is being implemented. he said they were to use new round fancy cups to put the coco into, and charge 2.50 for it. the employee asked if they were aware that is was the same amount of coco being served , but in a different cup for .99 cents. He said they were were aware, but they "just went with it anyway."

“Good breakfast/lunch place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Convenient location in River Park. Good food....and LOTS of it. I like the place for breakfast more than lunch. But the service is good, and much better than the rest of the breakfast chains!

“Great place on the road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

It's hard to find good places when driving north to Washington. We look for Mimi's because it is reliably better than the competition.
