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

This is the place for a wonderful breakfast, their muffins are the best as well. Our favorite is the carrot raisin. Low fat blueberry muffins are good too. Moving on to lunch, their homemade soups are to die for. Burgers are super good. I am not a fan, however, of their skinny fries they now serve. For dinner you might... More

A different kind of Eggs Benedict that has the eggs on pancake potatoes instead of a muffin. And the side is fruit rather than potatoes
