“Decent food at reasonable price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

This is your standard franchise restaurant, food is average to good, staff are pleasant and helpful and the decor could do with an update. Its location is good but there are a lot of choices around it.

“Good and less expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is a good place when you don't want to fork out a bunch of money for meals. They have some good down home cooking on the menu. Food is decent. Service is fairly good. They are pretty quick to bring out your food. I like the New orlean's room for atmosphere.

“Can't eat there regularly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

The food at Mimi's Cafe is comfort food, taken to the extreme. I felt extremely uncomfortable after eating my meal there due to the amount of fat and calories I had just consumed. This is certainly not a restaurant I could eat at often, just because I'd be at least 10 pounds heavier. Food was good, but I felt like a glutton. Sorry, Mimi.

“Excellent Breakfast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I've been here a few times and each time I've been quite happy! The breakfasts are DIVINE and lunches aren't too bad either (we typically go there for breakfast so I can't say much about other meals).

One "bad" note about them is they do get really crowded and their front lobby is quite small for the crowds they get (especially on Sunday). So I definitely recommend calling ahead to get your name on the list.
