I love this place. I usually get one of their quiches. Comes with choice of fruit or soup or salad, and includes one of their great muffins. My wife loves their various other dishes. Breads always fresh and delicious. Good service.. Prices so VERY reasonable.

Stopped Sunday morning at 7:00 to try for the first time. Have seen it frequently when at Turkey Creek for dinner and errands. Excellent and peaceful, I was the first one in. Haven't had eggs benedict for many years since not many places prepare the dish. Eggs were cooked to perfection, soft and tasty with very good hollandaise sauce and... More

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 enjoys the Salmon Benedict which... More

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.
