I wish I had known of this Cafe/Bistro. It has the best food I’ve tasted here in Oceanside. Andrew, our server, was kind, attentive, very helpful! It has some French dishes that are tre bien! My sons and I would have gone to this establishment...more, had we known of it. We came across it by accident. Infinite stars to the owner, server, cooks, chefs.More

With far too many decades of experience dining around the world, I leave some reviews to how Mom reacts and feels. Took Mom to brunch and she, who is way more picky and hard to please than would ever admit, was blown away by Mimi's....The service was awesome. The food was beyond her imagination good. And she could have a mimosa on a Friday at noon. At 76, little things mean a LOT and she was DELIGHTED by Mimi's. I've never been and I must say I was really very happy how great everything is. We'll be back - but not too often - things taste way to good to be good for you to have all the time! Half-joking. DELICIOUS food! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!More

Enjoyed having dinner, good food, nice waitress and pleasant surroundings. Reasonable cost. The location is nearby Walmart, so for whatever it's perfect. Oh yes very quiet.

Finding a Mimi's was a joy! Our local cafe closed a few years ago & we have missed it so this was a great find. We each had a pasta dish with enough left to have a to-go box. We, of course, ordered muffins to...go as their baked goods are always fresh & tasty. The cafe was not too busy as we had an early dinner but service was spot-on.More

Lots of people in for a 'breakfast'.Atmosphere was nice. Menu varied -Lots of choice ,liked the fact could have fruit as a side to the breakfast instead of fried potatoes! The service was good,waitress knew the menu and was attentive without being intrusive.

Although Mimi’s is located in a mall area, it is surrounded by lovely flowers and inside is cozy and comfortable like a quaint cottage. The food was fresh and each plate was garnished and presented beautifully. My only concern is that I asked for a...different kind of bread for my hamburger and a 99cent surcharge was on the bill. I should have been informed. The service was excellent and the food was served in a timely manner.More

This is the place where we had our very final meal with Norman. We had pancakes, salad, coffee and much good talk. And then we said a final goodbye.

I used to enjoy this place till my last visit in May 2019. The restaurant do not serve the yummy carrot bread as part of the free bread . You have to buy it as a loaf. The rolls had a very hard crust and...we had to ask for new bread. I ordered the chix pot pie which is overpriced but yummy. The only good thing was the BOGOF coupon with purchase of 2 drinks.More
