I have been to Mimi's from Texas, to Florida, and all over the place. This Mimi's has the same quality food and great service as almost all the other Mimi's (Downey... More

An excellent waitress helped us put together the soup & sandwich with french fires. The grilled three cheese was yummy! A nice place to eat with thoughtful staff.

Mimi's Cafe is an American view of a French cafe. I found the menu to be quite adequate for casual dining. The offerings are well prepared and served nicely. The wait staff have been given training and it shows. I found the service to be quite efficient and friendly, but not intrusive. The breakfast offerings are varied and quite good.... More

Mimi's has the best corn chowder, better than homemade. I also enjoy their turkey dinner and pot roast. If you go for breakfast, their French toast is excellent. They do offer 2 for 1 coupons online.

Years ago, working in California our office staff usually took a new employee here for lunch. The food has always been great. I've eaten in several other locations and each one has their own appeal.
