Mimi's I believe is a chain and is very busy so can be hit or miss. The times we went due to my being celiac I ask for a waiter with an allergy so they could understand. Our waiter, Collus, nailed it both times. He was able to make a special salad with "not on the grill chicken) and add... More

Overall, I recommend Mimis Oceanside. I only gave them four stars because I can see that if they ever got busy, they could NOT maintain a good level of service. I was there when it was down to 20 people, in which we got great service. My ex-waiter spidy instinct. Here is what I like! Great menu, which is varied... More

We were planning to go shopping at Walmart, and Mimi's is next door. So we had a nice breakfast with a coupon and it was great at great prices.

I ate at a Mimi's in AZ for lunch which was really good. So I decided to try Mimi's for breakfast in CA. I got the egg, ham, potatoes breakfast with a banana chocolate muffin. The food was really good and the orange juice was fresh squeezed. Service was excellent.

I have had lunch at Mimi's a number of times. I like their salmon plate for lunch. Salads are also good with a large portion for lunchtime. Service has always been very good and friendly. Nice restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

We recently visited this Mimi's Cafe to meet with another couple for a business/social event. They weren't particularly busy (dinner hour on Thursday night) and they were patient with us delaying our ordering for a little bit. The waitress was very patient, attentive, while not pushy. When we did order the food it came promptly and with one exception just... More

We went for breakfast here on Saturday and had very delicious meals. Instead of just the eggs and bacon kind of meals, you can also get crepes, fabulous omelets and much more. The decor is delightful and the staff is very efficient and very polite. If you chose the side room near the front, the noise level is very nice,... More
