The menu is large, hard to choose. Had a party of 8, each order different items, all were very good. The plates of food were large. The service was good too. The chicken & waffles was tasty. Took home 6 muffins for later.

Had Thanksgiving dinner here. Food was acceptable and what was expected but the service was very poor. The server didn't really care to serve and had to be asked several times for various things. Made the experience poor.

A comfortable place to go with loads of comfort food options that will satisfy. Cobb Salad available tossed or untossed, which I appreciated as so often there's no choice. And the pumpkin muffin was huge was scrumptious. I ate here alone and felt comfortable. Not a thrilling place but quite reliable and satisfying.

Had a good lunch, grilled chicken and the grilled chicken breast. Although I know the server only wanted to do a good job we were barely able to eat since we were always responding to questions from the staff if everything was alright, good and so forth. The experience was lessened by it.

She's African-American and if I remember it right, her name sounds like Helenietta. We ordered pasta and their famous French Pot Roast. Thirty minutes gone and our... More

The restaurant was nice. As was the customer service, our waitress was very knowledgable about the menu. And was happy to share her favorites. It was a little expensive. But worth it.

The food at Mimi's Cafe was good. I went in the middle of the week for dinner and the restaurant was pretty empty. I sat at the bar since I was alone and waited 20 mins for the bartender to return to take my drink and dinner order. The staffed seemed friendly and the atmosphere looked like a good place... More

The menu selection needs to change… Everything on there in my opinion needs to be updated.. new flavors and new ideas need to be brought in… Some of the staff are great… And the others .. Not so much… I had to give it a rating so that was the best one I could give it… Sorry don't hate.
