“Hands Down " The Best Breakfast In Town"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Whenever my wife and I visit our Son and his family who live in the Monrovia/Arcadia area, this is our 'go to' breakfast spot in town. We esspecially like the Sunday Brunch. They have the greatest French Toast and Eggs I have ever eaten. They keep the coffee coming and the wait staff are very attentive. We always come away with very full tummies for the day!

“Cute, good and close to the fwy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

We were just passing by going out of town and had to stop here. Cause like all Mimi's are good. There so close to the fwy. The staff was super nice. And they closed at 11pm on Sunday night and they let us stay until close to midnight cause we had to catch up on some work. You can never go wrong with the butternut squash ravioli with chicken instead of shrimp. And the tomato basil soup is beyond yummy. I'm always happy when going to Mimi's!!

“Another "meh" Mimi's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

Stopped for a quick lunch and wished we'd stopped elsewhere. Older location which hasn't been kept very clean - we did spot roaches in the restroom. The food was just ok - nothing special at all. I'm beginning to think Mimi's is getting too big for their britches, as it seems each one I visit is going downhill. Can't recommend this site in particular.

“Good food, bad service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2011 via mobile

We have been to other Mimi's before and they were great. Sad to say, we had a terrible experience at this one. Out of 5 dinners only two were correct. It had nothing to do with the cooks, it was our server. He put our order in wrong, then when we sent it back he argued with us that we did not tell him the special requests. When we got the corrected food it was just alright, the only thing that was great was the french onion soup, it was the best I have ever had.
