Went here on a Thursday around 1 in the afternoon. Waited 25 minutes to be seated, took another 10-15 minutes to get beverage, then waited 20 minutes for food to arrive. Never saw waitress until we finally stopped her to ask "how much longer?" Got a shrug and then a few minutes later the food arrived. Food was not hot,... More

We stopped at Mimi's because it was close by our hotel. I was very surprised when we walked in to find this very lovely restaurant. The prices were very reasonable and the menu was varied. We were treated to carrot raisin muffins and butter..they were delicious. My husband had spinach salmon salad (which he loved) and I had the French... More

We had to wait at entrance, host was talking to customers. After seeing us he seated us. We asked for a different section. He said no. We moved to bar area on... More

On our last day in Ft Myers, we went out to breakfast and thank goodness there was a couple sitting outside. We asked to do the same and it was very nice. My omelette was huge! and they substituted fruit instead of toast for me.

We had the Steak and Frites, along with a glass of house red wine. It was a very pleasant meal, similar to one we have happily had in France and Switzerland. Service is good, atmosphere very pleasant, and food was very good!

Service was outstanding and the ambiance was quite pleasant. Inexpensive - 10 oz steak was 18. Quiche Florentine was 10. $5 glass of wine. Plenty of parking since they are located at... More

I have eaten breakfast at Mimi's a couple of time with a large group. The menu is large, and had enough to satisfy everyone (eggs, skillets, etc.). Prices are reasonable, and the service is good. We'll be back.
