It's a nice place for brunch

My sister, nieces and I have brunch there once in a while. The food is ok and if you want to have hot tea, don't forget to tell your server that you want the water to be hot, otherwise, it will come just warm making it difficult for the tea to brew. The service is always friendly.

The carrot and walnut muffin was amazing but a little disappointed with the rest of the meal. Good service staff.

Have eaten numerous times, but not lately. Got their new special, meatballs and pasta entree. It was OK, but just not particularly tasty. Waiter was nice and attentive. Biggest testament is whether you'd go back based on the dish you had, and I wouldn't. So falls into the vast array of normal but not outstanding.

I've been to this restaurant for several years. I've enjoyed all the breakfast items here. I love that some items even come with fresh muffins. My husband loves the chicken Parmigiana. We will definitely come back again and again.

The service is poor, but even more, they overcharge customers. At least they did me, and the server ignored my attempts to correct it.

All I wanted was a plain chicken sandwich with lettuce and tomato. Got a side salad with it. French dressing on the salad,bacon,cheese,croutons in it. I just wanted a plain salad.

We ate at Mimi's recently and had a great experience. Everyone had different entrees and we were all pleased with our meals. My husband and I had traveled from Ohio to surprise our daughter for her birthday. Her husband suggested meeting them at Mimi's which is near their home. When the server found out about the celebration, she gave us... More

Not over-crowded on a Sunday morning by some good fortune, we enjoyed a very yummy breakfast, including fresh baked croissants, cinnamon brioche rolls and perfectly cooked eggs. The waitress was great & management attentive. Better than the Mimi's near where I live!

I have been to Mimi's numerous times and have never been disappointed. My daughter's favorite menu item is the French Onion Soup. We also love their Baked Brie, served with French baguette crostini, Granny Smith apple slices and apricot chutney. So yummy. Mimi's is a great place for families, date night with your hubby, business or friends. They have a... More

I had the pleasure of dining at Mimi's during my work's End of Fiscal Year celebration. The salad was great. My colleagues told me that their food was "okay." I may have to come back to check the other dishes since I was only limited to choose an entree.
