Having overnighted in Bakersfield on a driving trip to southern California, we stopped in at Mimi's on California Avenue before heading south on Route 5. When our server, Chanda, suggested that I upgrade from the Perdu waffles (with fruit stuffing and whipped cream) to a full breakfast for a dollar more, it seemed like good selling on her part. It was, but it was also just what I needed to attack the day at full speed. And of course we then ordered a 4-pack of Mimi's sensational muffins, to go.
As for Chanda, I doubt that she'll remain a server for long. Her combination of brains, skill and personality should move her up in a hurry.
