Atmosphere rules at this French New Orleans-themed spot that serves traditional American fare. – In Short
Decorated like a French country bistro with jazzy New Orleans overtones, Mimi's Café was named after a lost love of Arthur Simms, who started the restaurant in 1978 in Anaheim, Calif., with his family. The ambience could only be upstaged by the menu filled with traditional American favorites. Breakfast includes omelets, waffles, muffins and fresh-squeezed juices, while lunch and dinner feature comfort-food classics like pot pie and pot roast, deli-style sandwiches, burgers, pastas, steaks and salads.
Food is fresh! – The food is really fresh and delicious. The decor is cool. The service was excellent and very professional. The only reason I'm not giving it a perfect 10 is because it's impossible to park! That's also the only reason I don't dine there more often. Sometimes, my husband and I do a few laps around the parking lot. If we don't find parking then we go somewhere else. One time, my husband parked across the street (and it's a huge, busy street) and just walked there. I do love the food, though.
Good location, decent food – I've been here a great many times. The service is usually very good and the food is above average for a chain. I used to go nuts for their strawberry lemonade until I realized how much sugar they pour into those things. Their pasta dishes were totally decent, as was their soups. Even breakfast was good on weekends. It can get very crowded though.
