Been a couple of times with my mother and daughter. Cake choices lovely. Coffee average/good and soup tried and enjoyed. Been lucky with waitresses who are always pleasant.

Visisted Mimis on the Shore numerous of times. The cafe has the cutest and most beautiful decor and its cakes are divine. Its a perfect spot for a coffee and cake, afternoon tea with cake…

We had a lovely time at the restaurant. We went for the breakfast menu on Sunday morning, and I was not disappointed by the french toast I was craving. Come with an appetite because the portions are generous! My only drawback was I felt that the alcoholic options for breakfast (bellinis, mimosas, etc.) were a little too pricey. Still, quick...

Food was lovely, I enjoyed the chicken curry sandwich. The scones were very good and a good selection of cakes. It was extremely busy and noisy, there was a queue to get in and I felt it was a little too packed, tables too close together. However there was what seemed to be a quitter place to sit nearer the...

Booked a baby shower for Mimis. Up until the day the manager had been so helpful and lovely but on the day the staff were not great. It took a long time to get anything we ordered - glasses of water were taking quite a long time even. The staff were quite moody and generally we didn't feel so welcome.... More

Delicious cake, speedy service and fantastic venue! They also do take away, which is a great way to get your cake fix and have a picnic. Good too for afternoon tea

My husband and I were having a break in Edinburgh and decided to go for Afternoon Tea for my 50th Birthday. We came upon Mimi's Bakehouse whilst in Leith and absolutely loved it. The Afternoon Tea was delicious, the best scones I've had in a long time and the atmosphere in there was amazing! We will definitely be going back... More

I took my family to Mimi's for afternoon tea, and was, delightfully surprised. The service was great, but the tea and cakes was even better. parking was a bit difficult during busy hours, but it was well with it.
