My husband and I have visited Mimi's for breakfast several times. The meals are inconsistent: when they're good, they're quite good, but several items on their menu are pretty mediocre. Avoid the crepe dishes: they tend to be pretty flavor-less. Basics like bacon or ham and eggs are reliably good. Service is often slow.

I meet two other friends for breakfast. The food was okay, nothing special about it. The service was not good. I asked three times for coffee, then several more times for creamer. I ended up getting the creamer from another waitress. The manager came by and asked how our meal was. We let him know. He said sorry about that... More

We have been there for breakfast many times over the last few years. The menu and breakfasts are always good, but we consistently end up waiting for the check longer than it took us to order or eat the food. This doesn't seem to be an issue at another Mimi's we visit (in San Mateo), so I've had to conclude... More

This is easily the best value (price/portion/quality) at the crossroads of Laguna/Laguna Springs. The house red wine is excellent and the menu changes regularly to break the monotony. The meal portions are reasonably sized so you don't feel like a blimp when you walk out. Quality is on the high end for a chain.

We visit here on occasions & was seated the moment we walked in which was unusual. Got to the table and found food crumbs on the bench seats, a large piece of bread on the floor at the head of the table along with crayons; how thee items could have been overlooked is beyond me. Again Mimi's changed the menu... More

I walked in to put my name on the wait list for 7. He told me it would be an hour wait, I said ok, put my name down. He said are you sure? He looked over the list and said oh actually it will be an hour and a half. I said " Ok, put my name down". He... More

The clientele is overwhelmingly female and mature. The food is decent but not particularly upscale. Service was adequate, although the two orders were mixed up and then served to the wrong person for the main dish. My lunch buddy and I hadn't been there for several years, and probably won't return soon either.

Love the French Toast with Turkey Sausage! My-My-My! The service is really good and attentive overall. I've been here for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and each time I have been met with a great experience. Saturday morning it was especially crowded (as usual) with an average wait time of 10-minutes and I just walked in and asked if there was... More
