Mimi's cafe is reliable for good tasting food. It's flavorful and the portions are generous. The prices are reasonable for what you get. If you look at the menu on the internet and your mouth starts watering, you can expect it to be as good as what you read about.

This restaurant does not meet the Mimi's that we came to know when we lived in CA for 8 years. FR better restaurants in ABQ

There were things we liked about this western US chain--interesting exterior and interior, large servings (my eggs came with 4 slices of bacon, juice and a gigantic tasty muffin). However with coffee, juice glasses, water, patters for food we had no room at the table. Food was average except for the terrific muffin. By joining Mimi's Club on the internet we had a coupon for a free breakfast. Using the coupon breakfast for 4 was $40 before tip.

My wife and I first went to Mimi's Cafe years ago in Orange County, and it was excellent. We ordered everything from the turkey dinners and sandwiches, to some really good breakfasts. We always loved the "bread" that was served at the start of a meal which really was more like cake. Have been to several locations in the past, but its been some years since we have ventured into any of the locations.

This time around we went to this location, and the pumpkin spice, and carrot walnut "bread" was as excellent as ever. But then came the meal which was the turkey dinner. Presentation zero as the food was haphazardly spread across the plate, the turkey rather dry, the vegetables overcooked, and the mashed potatoes bland.

But the service was very attentive for which I give it one star, and an additional star for the "bread." But, as far as the food is concerned it will not be that much of a allure for us to venture to another location in the future. A shame as it used to be an overall great place.

We went in for a late breakfast only because we had a gift card. It took way too long for our food to arrive and when it did the poached eggs were very overcooked. My husband had the chicken fried steak and was pretty disappointed. It did not appear to be a from scratch product. Service was slow, the server was very nice but slow in returning with requests. The coffee was the best part of breakfast. This is now our second attempt at Mimi's, there will not be a third.
