“Mimi's is a favorite while in the area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Enjoy eating at Mimi's very much. Their muffins are huge and delicious. The quiche I had was very tasty along with the carrot raisin muffin. Others in our group had the following: Chicken Pot Pie, homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich, and turkey, Brie, and apple sandwich. Hope we can eat there again before we leave the area.

“Not all Mimi's are equal”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

We've eaten at a number of this chain's restaurants and with one exception the food and service have always been great. The exception being the Reno, Nevada operation. Years back the place was great but it went downhill several years ago.
We're always seated quickly and sometimes the server is polite and efficient but more often than not the food comes out other than ordered or just plain bad. Twice the eggs benedict were inedible, once with a completely burned English muffin and a waitress who never came by to see how everything was (the bill was delivered with the food), next time the muffin was completely un-toasted.
We complained once to the chain and received a nice apology,, along with a coupon for a free meal. Once again the service was terrible, the waiter was a walking attitude and we kept having to ask for things that were ordered. When the bill came and the coupon for proferred, the attitude suddenly became very friendly.
Two visits later, we'd had our fill of the place. We will never, ever go back to this one.

“Not a typical chain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

My first time to a Mimi's. I didn't realize it was a chain. Cute décor, French theme menu & food. Really good breakfast with generous portions for a reasonable price. You can get a muffin instead of toast. That's what I did, I suggest you do too. YUM! It's like dessert with breakfast. My Café Au lait was as good as any coffee house can make. All in all I was very pleasantly surprised

“Excellent Food At Reasonable Prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Mimi's is an excellent restaurant for my wife and I, with a wide food selection at reasonable prices. Often they also feature varied discounts if you register your email address. They offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner and all three feature outstanding dish choices. Their homemade muffins are really special.
