We decided to have a late lunch after afternoon movie. Mimi's was close by so we went in and were seated promptly, as it was mid afternoon. The servers were very attentive and we got our beverages quickly. When we ordered, we found some of the menu items were not available because they were changing menus. We ordered and received...

Really good breakfast. Lots of good food and the service was very good. A bit pricey but not unreasonable. Worth a trip there. Easy parking.

We went to Mimi's because that is what my grandsons call me. It was a French restaurant (I was a bit surprised because you cant tell what is it from the name.) The night we were there was quiet and not too crowded. We did not have to wait. The service was prompt and waitress was friendly. The food was... More

Went to Mimi's for breakfast. First we sat in a booth that had cold air blowing right at us. Then we moved to the back area it was filthy. All the booths had food crumbs on the chairs. The booths had tears and very worn out. Then our waitress moved us again across the bar area. The table was dirty... More

We went there last minute on a Monday night. Pleasantly surprised with the food and service. It wasn't very busy and the prices were very reasonable. Salmon was great and the house wine was great! I would definitely go back!

Even a two for one coupon could not get me to come back to Mimi's Café. Many of my favorite food items are no longer offered, prices have gone up and the quality has gone way down. The service my last time there was abysmal. I had to send my food back because I asked for no gravy and it... More

I decided to come here for breakfast the other day. The waitress was very helpful. I wanted to try the mushroom bacon and brie omelet. Then a pineapple upside down muffin. It was a brand new muffin that they're advertising the day before so I gave it a try. As soon as I tried it, I can't stop eating it.... More

Mimi's has an intriguing menu with a wide variety of interesting dishes not usually associated with restaurants at this price level (inexpensive). However, the preparation is unpredictable with some dishes very nicely prepared while others show very little care and come out underdone or overdone.
