Great coffee and atmosphere there. The freshly made cakes and cupcakes will make your palate burst with pleasure!! My personal recommendation: Red velvet cupcakes and Red velvet Cheesecake.

Some nice savoury bites too (best of them: home-made fishcakes) however, I found the savoury dishes quite pricey for the serving sizes... It'd be great to have a wider choice of savoury dishes for a lower average price of £6 or so (in contrast to the current £9).

Headed here with a friend for lunch and it was a very cute little place. It was quite busy which was a good sign. Staff were friendly and attentive. Ordered a sandwich which came with a sideline of crisps. Sandwich was quite nice but nothing special. Had a wide selection of cakes and sweet things which looked lovely. I think this place would be lovely for a casual afternoon tea with friends.

....and more! Just returned from a spectacular champagne afternoon tea with friends at Mimi's. Everything delicious, with attentive staff, the service was excellent. Scones soft and warm, melt in the mouth meringues and dainty sandwiches, cupcakes and tray bakes presented on towering cake stand. Glad we were able to take leftovers away. Generous helpings and excellent value for money. Book at table to avoid a wait. Thank you Mimi's, you are the pride of Leith!

Didn't have time to sit down for a coffee so got 6 cakes to take away.
Very well received by the family and they were all quickly eaten up!
