I have what some may consider a pretty large family consisting of 3 adults, a teenager, & 4 toddlers. I decided to call Mimi's Café (the Oracle location) to verify whether it was a family friendly environment, considering it was going to be our first time dining at the restaurant (and let's face it - my toddler quartet isn't exactly...

Large party, one server, seemed new. 15 guests arrived 15 mins early. No water, bread, tea nothing. We had to ask while folks where coming in, " you have somebread "? ( ran out of bread too later). I suggested to the server eventually to set a few pitchers with us if he was too busy.. Didn't happen. Slow service... More

I've dine at Mimi's Cafe here in Phoenix and had a pleasurable experience with them. While in Tucson this weekend, choose this restaurant with an expectation it has the same great service as in Phoenix but its totally disappointing. Server doesn't come as often. Its breakfast! Coffee must be refilled! And the bummer was when we got our bill...the coffee... More

Mimi's seems to go through cycles and it is currently on a downward spiral after having improved significantly in the last year. The food is average, sonetimes quite good, the service is great one day and non-existent the next, but overall the place is run down, with dirty carpet, not very clean bathrooms, and ripped upholstery. If it were totally... More

This place has good food but really slow. Took forever to get a glass of water then it was practically lunch time when we got our breakfast. I know there's s lot of retired folks in Tucson - including myself - but it doesn't mean we got that much time on our hands. Nice people though.

Staff very fast, took order quickly and food was served promptly. A very good Mimi's compared to most. Food was very good served hot.

Where to start? A very slow Tuesday night and it takes nearly half an hour to get a glass of water. Food was OK but not as good as in past visits. We had a coupon but without it the bill (for just 3 people!) would have topped $90! Jeez, for that money I expect a better dining experience.

We've gone for breakfast and dinner always a good experience to be had. The chicken pot pie is excellent as well as the beef pot roast, for dessert you can't go wrong with the crepe birthday cake it is excellent.

Parking was easy. A lovely place to share a meal with family. The menu is varied and the food was delicious.

My first visit while in town visiting. The decor was nice in a French decor style. The food was a bit slow coming out but the waiter said it was because they were trying to get out the order for a very large group. When the food did come out, the French fries were barely warm. We asked for fresh... More
