We haven't been to Mimi's in quite some time and decided to have breakfast here. My husband had a Mushroom Brie Omelet and I had the Egg Spinach Crepes which both were excellent. Our server was efficient and prompt. Portions were large and the prices are reasonable. Love their muffins.

I took my wife here today in part for our 18th wedding anniversary breakfast, to my surprise Mimi's has really gone downhill. From service to food. Maybe it was a bad day for both, but I spent a good part of the day in the bathroom, if you know what I mean. We sat at our table for 15 minutes... More

My wife and I enjoy dining at Mimi's Cafe frequently. Mimi's hing of New Orleans atmosphere is always so delightful. The music is pleasant without being so loud you cannot enjoy a conversation with people you are dining with. The food is always excellent. My favorite being Corn Chowder and French Dip Sandwiches. My wife enjoys the Salmon Benedict which... More

What a delightful surprise deciding on breakfast & lunch. I ordered Fish and Frites, the order came with generous portions (4 pieces of fresh cod) batter was light and not oily, hand cut fries, coleslaw was not the usual vinegar but a like cream sauce, I thoroughly enjoyed this meal and highly recommend. Hubby had the ham and cheese crepes... More

Had Sunday brunch here with relatives. It's popular as we had to wait about 20-30 minutes for a table. The food was very good, but on this particular day the service was very slow.

All the food we ordered was excellent and exceeded our expectations. The price is okay from 10$-20$ on average. The waiters are friendly & the ambiance is great. I would suggest it for anyone.

Met friends from out of town at Mimi's for breakfast. Two had crepes, another pancakes, and the last an egg order. All enjoyed their meals. The potatoes with the crepes looked good, but the ones with the eggs seemed to be deep fat fried or something - they were almost crispy and looked greasy. Ken the waiter was excellent.

Been a long time since coming here and I was not disappointed. Met as we came in by both manager and hostess and down immediately. Waiter Jeff came right up introduced himself to us and offered up the wine specials and asked if we cared for a drink. Gave us plenty of time to look at menu without being pushy... More

We had evacuated for the hurricane so was staying at a nearby hotel. I ordered online and went over to pick up our food. We had ordered Chicken Parm, Turkey dinner, two muffins for the next morning's breakfast and a piece of cake - I believe they call it a birthday cake and it's $5.99 per slice (more about it... More
