I have been to Mimi's Cafe in Sterling, Va and except for the inconsistency of their menu items and lack of good bar staff, the experience was very, very good. This Mimi's in Elkridge was my choice for breakfast this morning as it was close to the hotel. I ordered the mushroom omelet with bacon and brie. Absolutely tasteless eggs,... More

Went for breakfast. I had the buttermilk berry pancakes. The fruit was fresh and the pancakes were average but the vanilla bean caramel sauce tasted like stale flour and water. There were out of avocados so my wife ordered the mushroom, bacon and brie omelette. It came with NO mushrooms! The server said it was somebody else's omelette and was... More

My sis picked this one out, intrigued by the name, suggesting a French bistro. As I walked in the place made me think of a French version of a Cracker Barrell. The hostess was pleasant and we were promptly shown to our seats. Our waiter quickly acknowledged us and drink orders were placed. The service started strong but gradually became... More

I think the food was just ok. The homemade rolls were good. My biggest complaint was my food was a little on the cool side...my husband's too. We decided it was not somewhere we'd really consider again.

Won't be back! Restaurant wasn't busy...got seated right away. Server was uninterested, didn't appear that he was crazy about his job. Just going through the motions. Waited 25 to 30 minutes for a half of sandwich, soup and crepe (no special requests). When we asked why it was taking so long, the Assistant Manager came to our table and said... More

The service was great, the atmosphere, very nice and homey, and the food was served hot and quickly. I would recommend this lovely place to anyone looking for something a little different.

My wife and I stopped in to Mimi's again for breakfast this morning and had another pleasant dining experience. I had the Bacon, mushroom, brie omelet and my wife ordered a couple scrambled eggs. we both also enjoyed their great coffee. Not busy at 9am on a Friday. Good service.

We arrived in the mid afternoon seemingly during shift changes as servers were doing side work and getting cut. It took several minutes to be greeted by a hostess and almost 10 minutes to be greeted by a server. Eventually a server asked if we'd been waited on and got us our drinks, and walked away saying she was off... More

Tonight's experience was the last straw. Took my Mom for her birthday dinner & it couldn't have been much worse. Only 4 tables-so they weren't busy. Out of roasted chicken...had to ask for cranberries to go with the turkey...asked for extra gravy & were given beef gravy to go with turkey...out of bread...had to debate with the waiter over the...
