Reliable quality and service
I have loved this place since I was a kid. Amazing summer salads and the muffins are so good! The creme brulee was perfect! My favorite dish is their strawberry and grilled shrimp salad. I've only seen it in the summer but it's totally worth a trip!
Saturday 3/30/2019 my family (6) was in town celebrating the remaining days of my 67th birthday celebration. We had our meal between 12pm and 1:15pm. Upon getting ready to leave we spotted a Cockroach walking from beneath the bread basket (he was snug between the bottom of the wax and metal basket). It was brought to our server’s attention who didn’t seem shocked at all. However, he was bold enough to want to give my niece the bill. After she spoke to manager she didn’t have to pay. She was told the place is “sprayed every week”. Close the place down and give it a thorough cleaning. But, I won’t be back here!!!
Never again! We were just tortured for two and a half hours. Everything we needed was a process. Not enough silver ware st the table, I waited 20 minutes while my food got cold. Need a refill, good luck. Want dessert, better settle in for another 45 minutes. Ask for the check, he delivers it 30 minutes later. They screwed up our plans because we couldn’t make our afternoon appt. I didn’t plan to have Mimi’s Cafe completely monopolize my day. Make the omelets, serve them, collect the money, and set the customers free. Don’t hold people hostage! It was like dinner at my ex mother in laws house. Torture! To qualify, the waiter was very kind. He had to many tables and the kitchen is slower than Christmas. We loved this place. NO MORE! This absolutely sucked.
Was in on Thursday for Breakfast with my wife. When I opened the menu and saw the prices, especially $11.29 for "4" Pancakes! WHAT? It was even more for French toast! That's insane, who are they kidding charging outrageous prices like that. So we went to Millie's Restaurant and was served the Best Breakfast at the best prices. Thanks Millie's Restaurant, We will be back! 5 Stars fir Millie's Restaurant. We'll NOT be back to you Mimi.
I love the service! And of course the carrot cake muffins!
Great service, even better food
The chicken and mushroom the noodles taste like pure MUSTARD
Awsom and tasty coffee.
Neat looking place. But the food was good set back empty plates. Pancakes were amazing. Crepes were ok but came out cooler then would have liked. House wine was good. I think it is worth your time to try.
So many different types of food
Always good food. Pretty quick service and no wait for a mid morning breakfast.
Bad service, the people working here looks unhappy they need to be more kind and not so rude, the meatloaf taste like a frozen and not recently made, to be a Bistro leaves much to be desired.
Nicole our server is professional, kind and attentive. The food was great! We loved our corn chowder and French onion soup. Thank you!
Very large menu. Perfectly cooked salmon and steaks. Daily specials. Breakfast anytime. Good drinks.
Gracious, attentive staff. Perfect Cappuccino. Had the Eggs Bene Florentine which had good flavor but the Eggs were cold. Cold eggs is to a problem in most restaurants during AC season.
Very friendly staff. Awesome food. I will definitely be going back
So maybe my expectation was too high for mother's day but they did have a very limited course menu so I'm not sure what the excuse is. it took us 2 hours to receive our food from the time we put our name in. They got several things wrong on our order and the water tasted like soap. personally my eggs benedict was actually pretty good and the server and manager were both apologetic but definitely a solid 3.
Loved my dish. Great ambiance.
We enjoyed it, but we only had the appetizer. It was very good.
Foods good. But expensive
Food was full of flavor and tastes amazing. Waitress was informative, polite and enjoyed her job. Took home some muffins. May have to see if they can ship more.
Great service and good food, I recommend joining their rewards programs, I got a buy an entree and one free!
I love the food, and they have a great service
Fantastic food,atmosphere,and service.
Service was a tad bit slow. We waited about thirty minuets for the food when no one was here and we weren’t given drink refills. Mimosas aren’t served until 11 am so we were very disappointed. The food was amazing and was gone in less than 10 minuets! Portions are generous and I was able to split a plate with a friends and still be full!
Mimis cafe is a New Orleans Jazz themed restraunt. They have an authentic Style of cooking with a variety of delicious meals. They have All Day Breakfast and lunch/dinner categories. Very clean restrooms. A room for private meetings. Great space. Professional staff. Jazz Themed Art. They have a bar, and seasonal beverages and food. In the photo from the top are: salmon Benedict, four Griddlecakes with scrambled eggs and pork sausage. The bottom photo is one of my favorites: Chicken Cheddar Mac.
Was a wonderful meal . great staff
Great food. Calm atmosphere. Great service.
Very good food
Have been to Mimi's before in CA and TX. Was not high on my list to repeat ASAP. This one in Albuquerque on our road trip was convenient, close and WONDERFUL!! Our waitress, Kaylynn was very pleasant and helpful. The manager came to the table and hurried back with a little extra we asked for. My dinner, Rustic Chicken was DELICIOUS!
Wonderful food and service. Crepes were great.
My egg in a bread sandwich was yummy and indulgent. The potatoes were perfectly cooked and seasoned! Side salad very fresh and lightly tossed in oil and vinegar. My sister hibachi shrimp dish also wonderful! Our waiter extremely friendly and perfectly attentive! Awesome muffins!!
We had breakfast. Steak and eggs- asked for medium, got burnt, couldn’t cut it with steak knife. Ordered omelet- super well done chewy, tasteless eggs. Waiter was ok. Breakfast near $50 and inedible. Will never go back.
Damn good food
Nice place, food and service only so so.
Reasonable prices, unique foods. Nice and quiet atmosphere. Will be back!
Good food. Good staff. No complaints. Could be a tad cheaper for what you get though.
First time ever! Breakfast was delicious. Muffins were nice and warm with great taste. Highly recommended.
our waiter Antonio wasn't very attentive... he had to be asked for napkins and eating utensils... the beef liver was over cooked and strange tasting... some of the food was cold... there were some good points... the bread served was delicious and the gravy and the mashed potatoes were great!!
Love, love, love the French onion soup!!!
I requested to order takeout and was given a menu and directed to sit at bar. The manager ignored me the whole time. A waitress came out from the back and asked if I received service and I said no. She apologized and said the manager should have taken your order. The waitress was pleasant and kudos to her. The salmon was over cooked and dried out. Blah! I was turned off from this place. I traveled all day and just wanted to get a meal to take back to the hotel.
Enjoyed a nice meal with my sister and brother-in-law.
Good food and great service!
My food was very good. I got the pot roast with fries and garlic spinach. The others at the table enjiyed their food too. Our server was nice and helpful. She let us talk and enjoy ourselves while still making sure we had all that we needed. The breads to start are tasty too. The brown one is a sweeter bread yummy!
I enjoyed my time.
Food was great and atmosphere was mellow. Also our waiter was very attentive, considering our large party!
They served water that tasted like Clorox don't go. Go to hot tamales instead
You know I've eaten there before, & the food & service like always is very good. Today we had the nicest young lady. BUT I HAD A VERY LONG HAIR IN MY SANDWICH. UGH!!
Service was slow, but food is good. Go if you want a leisurely meal.
Great food and great service. A little pricey if you order wine.
The salad was okay. The roles were nice. Way too noisy on a Sunday afternoon.
The food was good, but under seasoned, nothing special. The service was ok, my steak was under done and the manager did come to the table when they brought it back to make sure it was correct. The server did the bare minimum and had several awkward exchanges. I did leave standard 18% tip, but she barely earned it. She never asked if we wanted more hot water for our tea or what beverage my son wanted with his kids meal which includes a beverage so we had to ask for it at the end of the meal. Apparently when you ask for water you are not expected to want another beverage even though you are paying for it.
Always greeted well @ the door. Service was wonderful. The good was delicious. Love the mimosas......& my free muffins for taking the survey is a highlight & makes for a great way to start my day with my coffee.......I love this place!
I love this place. Their blueberry muffins are the best!
Their muffins are the best. Any flavor. I finally tried the eggs florentine and they were amazing.
It's okay, over priced for quality of good, bland
Excellent service very attentive to our needs thank for your service Rafael
The food is delicious, and the service even better.
Excellent American style food cooked to perfection. Go for the Tomato Basil and Tuna Melt for lunch. Everything on the menu is good so enjoy!
Turkey is my favorite!! Very good service.
Awesome food, good service
I tried to give Mimi's a second chance but they fell short again. The place was dead so we though we would get seated instantly but staff only walked by and did not say anything. After a long wait someone came up and seated us, no "sorry or have you been waiting long". All we got was a follow me. Sat down and were ignored. Finally got someone over who took our order and then they disappeared. After another long wait they brought our orders and then left again....The last time we were in they gave us bread but this time nothing. When we finished a girl came over and asked if we wanted refills and since we were done with our meal we asked for the check and quickly paid and left. The food: French dip- the sauce tasted old, really salty and the meat was tough and tasteless. The hamburger- tasteless, needed seasoning and the bread was old and hard. No love went into the food at all. It was just churned out. Would not recommend. 2 tries and a bad experience both times.No wonder why it was empty.
Perfect portions and professional service staff.
Love going here. Good food and good service. I also enjoy the atmosphere.
Good food and a nice variety of everything during breakfast, lunch and dinner. I recommend signing up for their E-Club, they send buy one get one free coupons often and you get free muffins when you first sign up
Food was good.
Delicious salad with a cup of corn chowder. Great lunch!
Great food and excellent service and a relaxing atmosphere. It's one of our favorite go to restaurants!
Great food. Large selection.
Love it! Professional and great waiter. Food is great!
Wednesday morning, slow. Only one server working. I wasn't greeted within first minute of arrival. Exceptional drink service but after I placed my order-only cheese and fruit- I waited over 40 minutes. No coffee or water refills in that time. Other parties ordered meals and ate...still nothing for me. I feel like I wasn't valued as a guest. Would love to return and have better service...
Breakfast was good and a nice warm atmosphere. Service was a bit slow when we visited.
Popped in for some of their delicious honey bran muffins.....good as usual.
Great food and ambiance!
Luv this place ate here today 4 mother's day and I have to say we all enjoyed our plates. All of us left our plates clean which is not always the case highly recommend eating here.
Attend meetings in a banquet room from time to time. Always good food and good service.
Great service and food.
Great service and fluffy waffles. My son had the Salmon Eggs Benedict and it was cooked to perfection for him. Love the Buy One, Get One Free coupons.
Food has really gone down hill. Very pricey for what you get.
Chicken was over done dry. Service was great very nice clean place. I will eat again but not the chicken.
No wait on a Saturday mid morning. Seated right away. Excellent service. Excellent food. Highly Recommend.
This place is awesome great food,!!!
Great service, great flavors. The muffins are from bakery heaven. Couldn't get enough. Options of a breakfast and lunch/dinner menu is great if you can't decide on an AM/PM meal. A portion of the restaurant feels like someone's home dining room and a small bar to the side. Reasonable prices overall and worth it the $$. Good-sized portions. A salad, mocha coffee, omelette and potatoes and muffins , and I was able to get through half of each by the time I got full. Relaxed atmosphere and didn't take very long for orders to come out. Perfect brunch spot.
Abundant portions and luxurious accommodations make Mimi's a favorite for young and old. Terrific service too. These older-fashioned theme restaurants are a dying breed, offering casual dining, good food at the right price. Mimi's is big on Mimosas and offers brunch specials. Give it try or come back again, you may have forgotten how good a dining experience Mimi's is. Family-friendly.
Service was great. Food was awesome
Decent food, how are they do have a difficult time if you have a large party. Sad they got rid of the brand muffin, it was the best one they had. Still a great place to visit, and they can host a large group.
We will be back excellent customer service.
Food was good and Rafael provided great service. It was a great experience. Thank you
Wonderful atmosphere and food. I went here with my mom and we did have to wait 10 minutes for a table when it wasn't busy. My mom actually had to go up to someone and get their attention before we were seated. Other than that it was great.
Lots of good choices! Breakfast good Also service was great!
Food was good, service was good although a bit slow. There was a large party of over 60 people and the kitchen was backed up, so food took longer than usual. But this is not the norm here. Food came out hot and correctly. I'm sure management knew the party of 60 was coming, they should have upped their wait staff and kitchen staff or at least warned us that there would be delays before they seated us.
Mediocre at best. Selection sounded amazing, everything came out super salty and unimpressive. Our waiter was great, food could've been great but was just salty and mehh
Good food, better service. I’ve lived in Albuquerque for several months now and typically encounter subpar service most places I go. Nikki, who was our waitress, made this experience different. She was exceptional.
Bread came out a bit too hard for my liking on my French Dip and it didn't have mustard! Not sure if that's non traditional or what but I like mustard...
I really like the food here. Don't sit next to the bar unless you like noise.
A very nice place, quite quiet for Friday night, which we actually really liked. Good service and tasty food.
1st time here. I liked it and will be back. We came here for a birthday party and considering the size of our party, the waiters were really quick with just about every thing. The only thing I would change is the approach. Smiling instead of looking angry would be nice. The food portions were nice and the price was good.
Food was good. Service was not.
Food was incredible. Has a 'Disneyland' feel to it. Don't let it fool you.
Fantastic service. Awesome food. Great coffee. Thank you
Enjoyed the mimosas, not so much the food or service.. the poor waiter seemed as of he couldn't wait for us to leave even though we hadn't been rude or anything. I had to ask other servers to grab ours and he still tended other tables before us, I wont be going back
Great food and attentive service.
Always great food wise variety of menu items and they have great lattes too
Too yummy for my tummy
Outstanding food. Friendly wait staff. We do brunch there about once a month.
Loved it here!! My first time the Salmon was perfect!
Delightful, comfortable New Orleans style restaurant. Excellent food, good service, reasonable prices.
Very nice place for brunch or dinner. Nice atmosphere. Reasonably priced.
Always consistent with their quality of food and flavors. Super delicious! Their salads and sandwiches are so good!
Never disappointing! Food and service are excellent.
Loved Mimi's cafe...wow
Great no food. Great service. Highly recommend it.
Bread was soggy, and the cheese was just wadded up, on top of my 3/4 of an onion "soup". Don't waste your money on a $13 artichoke appetizer. The dip and crustinnis were unseasoned, probably bc the bread was pretoasted and old af. Muffins are quickly becoming the only edible thing there. Note their follow through in the picture
Good food. Quiet atmosphere.
Had the Quiche Lorraine and tge crust was very hard would not cut with a knife. I thinkbut wss old.
The place was virtually empty. Very creepily so, almost like a weird movie. For the amount of people in the restaurant the service was terrible. The food was absolutely atrocious. How that place stays in business I'll never know. I'll never go back. I advise anyone who's going there not to waste their money.
Our waiter was horrible! Took him forever to come get our drink order then after he finally dropped off the drinks taking forever to come back and get our order then he wouldn't come back so we could order mimosas. We asked for a bread basket took him forever to bring it then he finally brought our appetizer took him forever to bring our order then we didn't see him again until he was taking some dishes away after eating took forever to bring us our check what should have only taken an hour to an hour and a half tops took us two and a half hours! Ridiculous
The host set the tone for the entire meal. The server took better care of us, but the entire experience was still lacking. Other smaller tables seemed like they were the priority over our large party. Food was good, but not good enough to overcome the rest of the experience.
The menu has variety and we can get a delicious meal which has always tasted delicious. I personally enjoy the liver and onions while my husband can pick something he enjoys.
Love Mimi's Cafe for its ambiance: the art, the music, the interior decorating. Visited on mother's day, there was no wait (which I guess is a good thing). But the food wasn't that good. Ordered the egg white veggie omelette. Took a while too come out. And it was dry, overcooked, had poor presentation. Maybe the head chef, if any, was not there. Service was ok. Friendly but not proactive. Had to ask for silverware, condiments, and refills on water. As if the wait staff was new and untrained. I think it's time for management to do quality control.
Great food, great variety, good prices, and good atmosphere. Will definitely be returning.
This place is okay at best, the owner is really rude he really doesn't make you feel welcomed. The food is okay my niece found a hair on her food and the coffee tasted burnt. A plus to this place is the staff (besides the owner) everyone is super nice and professional. And there baked goods are well priced and absolutely delicious. This place gets a three from me because of the amazing service from the staff. Other than that, I don't feel like this place is worth it.
We just discovered this little gem.. The service is awesome, the food absolutely amazing..
Mimi cafe is the best place i have ever been good breakfast good service I will forsure come back when i come to Albuquerque i loved this place thank you so much
Excellent food and service.
Friendly staff, quick service, food was delicious
Been there 2x now and satisfied both times. Get a croissant every time, they are delicious.
We arrived at closing time but they received us with open arms! The food and service was outstanding!!!!
Pricy but delicious take on classical dishes
Very good food, comfortable sitting areas, very nice staff.
Good food slow service at lunch
I love great maple syrup on chicken and waffles so we went to our local restaurant. I was disappointed that they no longer have maple syrup so I ordered steak and eggs. It was served correctly with an exception of no toast so we ordered toast. Charged for toast and jelly. I didn’t know I was suppose to get jelly till I saw the bill. Little thing thing but annoying and the coffee was really boring, more like bad truck stop coffee. Short cuts lose customers. I’m now looking for a new place for great waffles and coffee!
The food and service was awesome. Thank you to our waiter Jeff who was such a sweetheart!
My favorite place. So cozy and lovely food
We met some friends here for dinner. Lots of items to choose from. Our food was hot and tasted great. It’s a much larger restaurant than it appears from the outside. Our waitress was great. This location is easy to find - right off 25.
Very good breakfast, ok coffee, very good service
Always friendly. Delicious.
Wish there were more of these. Not high cuisine, but a pleasant break from 'Merican food.
Upon our first visit, the food and service were to die for. Then, as we repeatedly visited the Albuquerque restaurant, spending quality amounts of money on breakfast, lunch and dinner, and leaving healthy tips, the service decreased. The more we contributed, the worse we were treated. I will never eat here again.
We used Mimi’s Cafe for catering for our thanksgiving events. There were two events with major differences. The first event was a company luncheon and everything worked out splendid. The second event was for family and turned out pretty bad. The first event no confirmation call was given but everything was ready on arrival and came out perfectly. For the family event we received a call an hour before pickup time to confirm pickup and order. Upon arrival the food was not prepared, and no one exactly knew what was going on. It took about 45 minutes for the food to be prepared and ready and then there were several discrepancies. Our order consisted of baguettes which on the previous days order were soft and amazing. On the family order they were hard... hard as a rock. They had to be at least a day old. The second issue with the bread was that on the first order, the company order, we didn’t have to pay extra for the baguettes. On the family order we did, about $40 more. Which was pretty significant considering it was already a $150 catering order. The next issue was with the green bean casserole, while we ordered green bean casserole and were confirmed over the phone it would be green bean casserole what we received was a large try of just green beans. And it wasn’t more then a quarter full. When we brought this to their attention we were initially given an “oh well” what do you want us to do about it type line. Simple problem simple solution shouldn’t have happened though. On both days the food tasted great, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce were show stealers. Not worth the overall aggravation of standing in a restaurant for at least a hour in total with two children during thanksgiving.
Service was absolutely horrible. The waiter had forgotten about my table. Gave me something I didn't even order. I'll never be going there again. Can I give it no stars?
Great food great service!
The food was great, really enjoyed the stuffed French toast and the peach mimosa. Everyone's food was good and well portioned, the coffee was fresh and hot as well. The service is okay, our server was nice and seemed welcoming but we didnt see her as much as we would have liked. Otherwise it was a good visit.
Most favorite brunch place. They are a tad bit pricey but the food is delicious. Their muffins are super good and they have so many options to choose from. It's a big place so you can take your whole family there. Their chicken and waffles are probably my most favorite out of all the places to get them and I've tried a lot. Def recommend!
Great service and timely food delivery. But the tomato soup tasted like marinara sauce and the grilled cheese like cheesy bread from pizza hut. My experience this time round was not the best.
The menu options are amazing ..quiche, crepes, eggs Benedict, muffins. Perfect Saturday brunch options. The service was outstanding and the prices were extremely reasonable.
The food and Jeff's service were excellent.
Food was very slow coming out even though there were only three tables full when we got there at 9:30. Server kept our coffee filled with strong, great coffee while we waited. I was very happy with my selection, Santa Fe omelet with a berry muffin. The muffin was delicious; warm, stuffed with sweet berries with a tart, strawberry drizzle on top. Liked them so much, I ordered a 4 pack of muffins to go. Sister had less good experience. The stuffed French toast recipe changed since the last time we were there, to smaller portion with less cream cheese marmalade stuffing. There was barely a smear of stuffing which melted into the bread. You couldn't taste it & it doesn't match the photos. The stuffed French toast was the reason why we went to Mimi's. The manager made it a better experience by having the kitchen remake it & comped her order. That was very nice & changed my review from bad to average. Suggest you not schedule an appointment after breakfast & request the stuffed French toast be "stuffed" to where it oozes for the full taste!
Highly recommend this restaurant. Very cozy and quaint atmosphere. Very good food. The waitresses and Waiters very friendly and very keen in menu knowledge. I never can complete a whole meal. Every time I have free quilted Mimi's Cafe I've always had to box up the rest of my food. The prices are not too bad. Definitely get your money's worth
Great food. Excellent service. My favorite place in Albuquerque.
Just plain delicious country French comfort food!
Four stars because the food was excellent, but the service was somewhat lacking. I will still go there, it just seemed to be a fluke. Our table was seated, and then our waiter seemed to forget about us. No worries though. We were able to remedy the situation. They get pretty busy around brunch times, so keep that in mind. If you’re ok with a wait and a busier-than-normal waitstaff, it’s worth it!
Always wonderful Waiter (Rudy) is amazing always makes you feel like you are someone special.
Amazing service provided by JR, perfectly cooked eggs Benedict. I was impressed by the delicious food, service and atmosphere.
