Disappointed on Surf & Turf – I didn't expect portions to be large with the "Just the Right Size" menu items. I did however expect shrimp to be larger than a quarter. With the Surf & Turf you get 4 shrimp grilled on a skewer, and a very small (but adequate) flat steak and small but tasty balsamic vinagar salad. The shrimp were dry because they were so tiny --- these are not meant to be skewered and grilled at this small size. These are salad size shrimp. I would suggest 3 larger shrimp. Just so disappointing because I liked the meal so much but would never order again for that reason. Spires Restaurant gives you 2 skewers with 8 gigantic juicy shrimp (not dry) for $9.99. I would recommend Spires if you are looking for grilled skewered shrimp at a great price.
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.
pumpkin muffins never outdone – although having a cheese eating surrender monkey theme Mimi's service is reliable and high quality. Their pumpkin muffins are second to none. An excellent dessert menu awaits you until 11pm -- don't miss the chocolate chip pecan pie. Cuisine is anything but typical ranging from the thai chicken wrap to good old fashioned chicken p0t pie.
