food is decent, especially the salad. used to come often but feel uncomfortable with either a server who doesnt know what they are doing (or are being barked at by the man or lady in charge!) or waiting an hour for a simple salad. good smoothies though. really wanted to like this place but in the end i gave up. good service isnt difficult guys!

I appreciate your review and for bringing to my attention the poor service you received. The problems we were experiencing during your visit have being sorted out. It was unfortunate that you had to have this bad experience but I can assure you, your next visit, if you care to give us another chance, will be a great one. I value comments made by my patrons and always act to rectify the issues.

We went for Sunday breakfast. Services was very very slow - we arrived at 10h30ish and waited almost an hour to get our food. Mimi's manager should have informed us before we ordered our food that they had problem with their stove not working. My son ordered eggs benedict which was supposed to be served on an English Muffin but instead it came on some toast. The waiter apologized and said he forgot to mention this -pity as there is nothing worse than disappointment. I also notice that they charge R4.50 for boiled water... at all other restaurants there is no charge for boiled water. Orange juice is complementary, but we had to ask the waiter. So either lack of training of waiters not knowing the menu. Doubt we will go back.
