“Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2012

We found the prices reasonable and the food good if not exceptional. For about $14, we had a 3-course dinner that was more than adequate. (Couldn't finish everything.) Menu choices are a bit more creative/innovative than at other similar chains, and the atmosphere is pleasant. Our server was efficient and friendly. In sum, a step up from chains like Denny's without much of a step up in price.

“Poor bussing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2012

We went in for breakfast last week. We've been many times before and enjoyed it. However, on this occasion the table had not been well cleaned, probably for some time. There was what appeared to be congealed mashed potato on the pepper-shaker and on the salt shaker. There was a three-sided teaser menu on the table which had large splotches of an unidentifiable brown substance congealed on it.

When I looked at adjoining tables for clean condiments I found that they, too, had congealed and hardened food remnants on them.

When I brought this to the on-duty manager's attention he pretty much shrugged his shoulders in an "oh well.." way.

The food was fine. Cleanliness not so much.

A pleasant place to eat, across the street from the Country Inn and Suites. Good service, and they have excellent baked goods.

The menu is pleasing; the service great and the ingredients in your order fresh all the time. Easy to park and a short wait time until accommodated.

“Ate there twice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2012

I've had breakfast at Mimi's here in Atlanta, but never tried it for dinner. The one is Scottsdale was in walking distance of the hotel so we decided to eat there. It was fabulous. I had the chicken crepe which had a cream sauce and spinach. Even my husband who hates chicken thought is was good. Our waitress was efficient and truly pleasant to talk with. The chocolate mousse for dessert was excellent - dark chocolate and not too sweet. The next night I was not feeling well and the busband went back and loved it just as much.
