This is our first visit to a Mimi's Cafe and will definitely be seeking them out on future trips to the US. Everything about this place is lovely, our server Mindy was very attentive and could not do enough for us. We had three appetisers, artichoke dip, meatballs and moules and frites which were all excellent. Before leaving I thanked... More

So it being a chain, it acted like a chain! the corned beef hash was excellent and tasted homemade...I would go back for it again...Even though I like local places, and don't like chain restaurants that make you feel..."take it or leave it". It was a good place to grab a breakfast.

We arrived at 5:00 for a girls night out. Our waitress was at our table right away to take our drink order. We then placed our dinner order. My friend had the meatloaf which looked like a piece of toast. She said it was good. I had the apple and chicken sandwich. I loved my sandwich. It came with side... More

I hadn't eaten at Mimi's in years. A close friend, who is a regular , reintroduced me to this food establishment. I was astounded at the extensive and appetizing choices they now offer. They truly offer something for everyone. If you like a visual preview then check on line - it will make you hungry perusing the dishes. My companion... More

The menu was limited and has lost the feel of a New Orleans restaurant. The lack of imagination in the menu was at least made up for by the shoddy service and high prices. I love New Orleans food and culture, this has neither. I will not return.

I've been here twice for lunch lately, and was baffled both times when they took my name and made me wait to eat, even though half their tables were empty. Perhaps they were short staffed, both times, but it was the lunch hour. I wouldn't have come back if the food hadn't been so good. They start you off with... More

Ate breakfast and lunch here during a recent trip. A very large menu with large portions. The quality of the food was surprisingly good; service was pleasant and quick. Decent ambiance and table spacing.

We loved this restaurant. Friendly staff and really good food. We had the salmon salad and the half a baked chicken and frites. Wow, the chicken was so nicely seasoned and so moist there was puddling of juices on the plate and a wonderful burst in my mouth. The frites were plentiful, the breads delicious. We will definitely return.
