Great food, service & prices very good. Join their club for special deals & discount coupons. Breakfast specials are good at lunch and are great. Have returned several times. Will be there for Father's Day..

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.

I prefer Mom and Pop restaurants but Mimi's is good for large gatherings. They have a private room now that fits 10. They can also push tables together in other parts of the restaurant for big groups. I must also say that they do have some delicious breakfast choices. Service is usually good. Love the muffins.

First off the waitress had a horrible attitude toward my mother, instead of being kind and attentive the server was rude and pushy. First time here and the food wasn't to the usual MiMi standards. We always go To Mimi's and order the same foods but this time the food wasn't as good. The steak was half raw and half... More

Great lunch and all day breakfast selections. Tomato basil soup was some of the best I've had at a restaurant in years. Fresh, hit and flavorful and just wish it was drizzled with basil oil. This came with soup/salad combo and had the spinach salad. Was an ok spinach salad but the tomatoes on it were bland and flavorless. Hot... More

Friendly and good food. Staff happy to offer substitutes and good service. Food is always fresh and cooked to order. Santa Fe omelette is my go to order. The muffins are also lovely although quite filling usually take it to go instead of eating it there and then. Great location, always a good place for breakfast or brunch. Lunch and... More
