We've eaten at Mimi's in Scottsdale and Mesa, Arizona, but never breakfast. The service was a little slow, but our server was doing her best so early in the AM. I didn't feel like eating a big breakfast, so on their menu, I saw French Toast and didn't see the word 'GRAND' next to it. When she asked how I... More

We were very pleased with Mimi's. The food and service were wonderful. We had a small family "reunion" of 6 people and were seated in a small, private room. Could not have had a better experience.

Was almost full at lunchtime. Server was helpful in selecting our food. Food (salads & sandwiches) were delicious and filling.

Comfortable chain to revisit wherever they are. This one has ample parking. A nicely decorated French-themes set of rooms, easy and interesting on the eye. Three for lunch at 12:30, but plenty of room, comfortable booth, air conditioning set a little low. Should have gotten my fleece out of the car. One order of brioche and roasted brie came with...

We went to have breakfast at Mimi's café with my family and a friend who recommended the place. Everything was delicious! I had Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and they were glorious! My wife had Quiche Florentine, it was really good too. But the Croissants were awesome! the fluffiest I've ever had in my life! Make sure to ask for... More

I have stopped at Mimi's Cafes in different cities around the country. The menu is fairly extensive making it an easy stop for a meal. The only complaint I have for this location was the quality of the meal I received. I ordered the "French Pot Roast" (Beef Bourguignon). There was little beef in this dinner entre, of which 1/3...

We have eaten here a few times. Sometimes it is satisfying and welcoming, and other times it is discouraging and includes a long wait. It does not seem to be related to the amount of customers.
