I had a business lunch meeting on Wednesday and we ate at Mimi's café. Their menu selection had a wide variety of entrée choices. They served warm, homemade bread, and the waitress was very good. She kept our glasses filled with water and ice tea throughout our meeting. I had the grilled salmon which was excellently prepared and grilled to... More

It was okay...we don't have these restaurants back East, and I would compare it to a Ruby Tuesday's. Overpriced, and not that great.

This location is near Fiesta Mall which most stores have closed. Location could use updating. However service is good & they have budget friendly lunch selections. You must try the corn chowder!

Lots of healthy & gluten free choices that worked well to accommodate our work group. The homemade muffins that come with certain meals/salads are huge & outstanding! Highly recommend the bran w/honey...my favorite out of the 3 that I tried. Great, friendly service. We went there 3-4 times over the course of our week in town!

I got the salmon omelette with capers, the eggs were a bit overcooked but overall quite yummy. They don't give cottage cheese as a sub for potatoes, but they will give you sliced tomatoes. My boyfriend got the eggs Benedict and it was devoured by him instantly - I'm guessing it was delicious since he didn't share the star was... More

Had the steak but held the fries. Was offered broccoli or fresh green beans. The beans had lots of bacon. The steak had too much gristle/fat for a NY strip. The red house wine was nice. Wasn't asked if I wanted to add a salad etc.

I dined here with about 15 friends. The staff were great, funny, accommodating some of our groups want to alter the menu items. We had a brilliant time.
