This is a great breakfast spot! Of course they serve good mimosa's, but their food is also on point! Always a pleasure to visit Cafe Mimosa!

It is a very cozy little place with tables too close too each other where we sat in the patio. We had eggs Benedict, omelette , and two pastries. Nothing special. I dont think I go back.

Super cafe patio on quiet part of DelMar ave. Creme brulee french toast is awesome. Cooked oatmeal served as a cold dish is interesting. The only negative---Servers were friendly but forgot us after the check. Mimosa, Antoines & Redd Fox lounge are same owner

A group of us went to sit on the patio for a late breakfast Saturday morning. If you like French toast, its a must at this place! Great variety of food for all. Service is good and location is nice for walking around a bit afterwards.

How lovely to sit on the patio enjoying the pleasant weather and the food at Cafe Mimosa. I had the chicken panini - great flavor combinations and they toasted the bun!

We ate here twice and it is extremely busy at peak times. We do not know whether it is possible to book a table but if so it would be advisable to do so as a wait of 45 minutes or longer for a table seemed quite common. Each time we walked past there seemed to be a line of... More
