“A delightful experience”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

Mimi's is wonderfully located by the river. We went for tea and cake. The waitress was extremely helpful, polite and knowledgable. The cakes were delicious (particularly the peanut butter blondie.) Highly recommended for a traditional tea house style afternoon.

Thank Benjamin S

“Best Wedding Reception Ever!”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

This is what I was told by all my guests that Our reception at Mimi's Bakehouse was the best ever! The staff were amazing from the initial contact to the running of the event on the day. We were able to hire the venue exculsively for the price of afternoon tea for all our 50 guests. Mimi had told us that a previous event had hired a band and we followed suit, which with the decor of mimi's the rearranged table settings, low lighting just made the evening super special for us all. Ashley, mimi's event coordinator was super fun and relaxed and on the ball which made me so comfortable in her skills to pull of an amazing day for us. I will not hesitate to suggest Mimi's bake house for anything from a relaxed coffee to a very special event. Over the Moon!

“Super spot”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

Came here as had time to kill before a meeting locally and could not believe how busy it was, and deservedly so.
Lovely coffee and enough cakes and buns that you could come here every day for a month and have something different.
Lovely place for locals to meet and chat. Possibly a few too many small children to make it a good place for a business coffee, but fabulous for everything else.

“Every bit as good as I expected”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

My daughters and my wife's favourite place ever since Loopy Lornas went downhill. Si finally agreed to go along and to some extent it was exactly what I expected. Quite a lot of yummy mummies etc. But surprisingly as few businessmen and older couples there as well.

My wife was a bit unwell with tonsilitis and the staff offered to get water and honey for her tea etc to help with her throat. Staff were amazing, genuinely friendly and helpful. Was initially concerned with the length of time for the food to arrive but I have to say it was excellent, fresh, well cooked and presented. Baking was amazing especially the scones and lemon meringue cupcakes. And I say that as someone who has managed major bakeries in the past.

One of the best we have visited and we will be back every time we are down there.
