We like this chain, and often stop at a Mimi's while traveling. We live near Gilroy, but had never been to this restaurant, so on a rainy weekend, we gave it a try. After being seating in the VERY NOISY room (to the right as one enters), we asked to be moved to another room where it was much quieter,... More

Mimi's is a place you go to when you each want something different and you're not quite sure what you want. I love the Corn Chowder Soup... My daughter has food allergies and this restaurant had no problem fixing her meal to the way she wanted... I had the Soup and Cheese Sandwich and it was very good.. I also... More

Went to this location on way to shopping. I have been to Mimi's before so I thought it would be a good choice. I ordered the pancakes My niece ordered the taco breakfast. The food was brought out quickly. As I cut the pancakes, it felt as if it was hard to cut. I took a bite and it was... More

Hostess - passed us over 3 times for seating. Did not say "I'm sorry", just "Not my fault". Waitress - served me regular coffee when I ordered decaf. When I brought it to her attention, again, no apology. Waitress had us waiting 15 minutes before taking our order. Needless to say - no tip!

I really enjoy this restaurant. I especially like the corn chowder & the bakery goods. Everything I have eaten here was good. Service is good & friendly.

Very good value, good portions of comfort food. Pot pie, soups, breads, are all good. They offer special on wines, that are a great value.

The food is ok but nothing spectacular. The service was good and averaged priced. The desserts looked good.

The meals here are pretty good, generous portions and well made. The soup and salad or sandwich options are really nice and served with fries or fruit. The shrimp pasta special dish I had for lunch today was good but too heavy on the garlic and lemon - overpowering and after eating about half of my meal, all I could... More

Mimi's is an ordinary but pleasant cafe. The staff are friendly and accommodating and did their best to please. The food was all right. This is a chain, so nothing stood out as outstanding and nothing awful, either...except: It was my sister's birthday and the waiter brought her a generous slice of birthday cake to celebrate and it was truly...

My wife and I decided to stop here for a mid week breakfast on the way south to big sur. The place was virtually empty and yet the greeter took us into another part of the restaurant that had 0 patrons. We asked to be moved to the other side where there were two other parties so at least we... More
