I used to go this regularly couple times in a month and stop going after waiting for food for long time and inconsistent service. Avoid to go lunch and dinner hours especially.

Stopped here for Easter Breakfast. They had a special Easter menu and special drinks. We opted for the pancakes and eggs benedict. It was just what you would expect from Mimi's. I would go back again and try their full menu!

Nice decor, wide variety of food to select from, great ice tea! Enjoyed the meal and service. Must be a popular spot with the locals for lunch, as there was a wait by 12 noon.

Mimis has always been one of our favorite restaurants. We just experienced the most disappointing Valentines dinner ever. Took a while to find the hostess. Our waiter was very slow with the drinks to start with. Salads/soups were on the table less than 2 minutes when the entrees came out. Waiter asked if we wanted fresh ground pepper, we said... More

Half cordon blue sandwich & French onion soup were wonderful. Wife had farm tacos with corn tortillas that were the best corn tortillas she has ever had. Alma, our waitress, was the best server that we have had in many months. Ask for her.

I had a Cobb salad in many restaurants, but I never had one presented like this one at the Mimi's café. They chopped all the ingredients in very small pieces and they mixed all together in a way that was almost impossible to detect the ingredients of the salad, and the aspect of the salad was like chopped chicken feed....

Dined: December 1, 2016 My wife and I ate at Mimi’s while visiting in Mesa for a few days. Although they are all over the US we had never heard of it. We were pleasantly pleased with the experience. A “comfort food” sort of place. The staff were all very friendly, and I give a shout out to our waiter... More
