Visited twice and loved mimi's, both the carrot cupcake and the cheese scone were delicious and the staff very friendly. Well worth a visit, only problem is that there are only 3 tables so if you're wanting to eat in I recommend getting there as they open

First visit to Mimi's was a lovely experience. Very attentive staff in this very well presented eaterie. We spent an unhurried hour drinking coffee, eating scones and sweet treats. Coffee good, scones slightly dry, butter brick hard and sweet treats were very sweet. Would recommend though as all in all a pleasant experience

We were looking for a quick coffee and found this place which has just three tables in the window. It was almost impossible to choose something to eat with our coffee (which tasted very nice) as everything looked so tempting. I opted for the malteser slice which was substantial and delicious. My friends shared a giant empire biscuit and a chocolate krispie. We were all very impressed. There were so many other things I noticed - the black forest gateau looked luscious. It would be no good for someone on a diet, but thoroughly recommended.

Banoffee pie ice cream and victoria sponge cake ice cream were both scrumptious. Didn't try the cakes but they also looked delicious! Amazing! Don't miss out on Mimi's as you stroll the Royal Mile.

My daughter and I popped in just before 12 noon and the tables were already full, but thanks to accommodating customers and a very friendly lady on the counter a small fold up table and chairs were found for us and we were slotted in.

There were some large, delicious looking scones, both savoury and sweet and many more cake varieties than we had expected, having passed the shop windows two or three times before. It seems getting there earlier and being flexible about whether you sit in or just take a cake away is the best thing to do.

We overheard one waitress saying that they are still testing out different cake flavours to see which sell best. If only we lived in Edinburgh we would definitely volunteer as testers! But we don't so can just recommend the chocolate Oreo or Mars bar cakes and the lemon meringue slice which gives you biscuit, caramel, a crumble of meringue on the top and just enough lemon to bring it all together. One of the best cake slices ever invented!
