We went there for lunch, order a tomato soup, tasteless and not fresh, also had fries that it was cold and horrible, service was slow and the bill expensive for no quality or customer service, won't go back ever again.

I hate cold fries! I always eat them first so they won't be cold. Unfortunately these fries were cold when I got the meal. The sandwich I ordered was piping hot. A good thing. Service was slow and all the waitresses seemed to not be engaged. I guess that's what happens when you go at lunch time.

We always enjoy the food at this French themed restaurant, moderately priced and well prepared. They seem to be having a bit of turnover among their servers; the young man last night seemed inexperienced (brought me a bottle of Corona with the cap still on; forgot the pumpkin muffin until I was almost finished) but maintained a cheerful, polite attitude....

This was more of a activity than dining. My friend and I went to celebrate my birthday by participating in Paint NIte on Saturday, Sept 24th. We had a glass of wine, and painted a wonderful scene with a group of very nice ladies. These events are all over the place and this was my first one. We will do... More

We ordered take-out at this Mimi's and it was really good. My husband had the Pot Pie and I had the Grilled Salmon with roasted potatoes. Both meals were very tasty and came as we ordered them. We've eaten at other Mimi's before and the food was not that great.

We love Mimi's Cafe for Sunday Brunch or breakfast or lunch any day of the week. I like the omlets, the french toast is really good, always have a very well prepared quiche ... I have not found anything I don't like on the menu, but the coffee here is the closest I have found to the coffee I had... More

There was nothing special about this Mimi's restaurant. After we placed our order, we noticed that our server was telling surrounding tables about dinner specials, desert specials, etc., we did not get any of this information from her. Our meal was fine and service was okay.

A good place for a home cooked meal with some very tastey dishes. I liked the Jambalya. Nice spice, not too much.

This restaurant has a good all-around menu. The food is very tasty and the beaked goods are delicious. I would recommend this establishment for any meal.
