Have you visited Mimi’s Cafe recently? They are located in 24 different states in our fabulous great nation. 🙂 I had not had the opportunity to visit one in awhile, but I used to go there regularly with my grandma and we were quite fond of the carrot raisin bread basket, French onion soup, and the albacore tuna sandwich and of course there are a variety of other fabulous menu items we loved. 🙂
Something exciting is happening at Mimi’s Café that I would love to share with you as my readers! On October 7th Mimi’s Café will be returning to a predominantly French Restaurant with some fabulous new menu items to offer as well as their classic favorites! Also (this part makes me happy) their carrot raisin bread that they took away for awhile is back! 🙂 All you have to do is ask for a complimentary basket. It is amazing bread! It is a must have if you never have had it!
I would like to share all of the new menu items Mimi’s will be releasing in October because you are sure to enjoy them for each tasty morsel as I had the opportunity to do at Mimi’s a few weeks ago! Mimi’s Café will be introducing 3 new appetizers and 11 entrees for their dinner menu as well as a fabulous new breakfast menu!
The newest appetizers at Mimi’s Include:
Mussels a la Mimi’s – steamed in white wine, garlic and fresh herbs, served with garlic French baguette croutons
Petite Seafood Crepe – home-made herbed crepe with sautéed shrimp, scallops and spinach in a savory, cream lobster sauce
Baked Brie – warm, bubbly brie with French baguette croutons, tart apple slices and apricot chutney
I loved all of the appetizers above, but my personal favorite was the fresh creamy brie with the apple and apricot. The flavor was amazing and left my mouth craving for more..My only qualm about this dish was that we all wished there were more baguette croutons to go with the cheese. 🙂
There are 11 new entrees Mimi’s brought to the table for us to try and of course we all had our favorites, but I do not think there were any items that people were not pleased with.:)
|Mediterranean Salade with Herbes de Provence Chicken||Roasted chicken with herbs, prosciutto, mixed greens, tomatoes, English cucumbers, Kalamata olives, red peppers, red onions, artichoke hearts, peperoncinis and feta cheese with Mimi’s red wine shallot vinaigrette.|
|Grilled Salmon Salad Nicoise||Grilled Atlantic salmon with mixed greens, Kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes, red onions, haricots verts, Provencal potatoes & hard-boiled egg, with Mimi’s red wine & shallot vinaigrette.|
|Mimi’s Signature Bouillabaisse||Provencal seasoned soup with mussels, shrimp and scallops, simmered in white wine with potatoes and tomatoes. French garlic baguette croutons are served on the side.|
|Bistro Bavette Steak||French-style grilled steak with mushroom-infused au gratin potatoes and a choice of bordelaise or béarnaise sauce and seasonal vegetables.|
|Tournedos du Boeuf||Medallions of beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and bordelaise or béarnaise sauce and seasonal vegetables.|
|Sole Meuniere||Petrale sole, lightly dusted and seasoned with flour and sautéed, served on top of a meuniere suace with capers. This dish is served with a side of Provencal potatoes and sautéed garlic spinach.|
|Saint-Malo Pasta||Mussels and fresh linguine are topped with a spicy pomodoro sauce and served with garlic baguette croutons.|
|Coq Au Vin||Coq au Vin is braised in red wine, mushrooms, and pearl onions and served on mashed potatoes with peas.|
|Pasta Carbonara a la Mimi’s||Linguine is tossed with prosciutto, aged parmesan, peas, and alight chardonnay sauce, and topped with a fried egg.|
|Brioche Croque Madame||This is an open-faced ham and swiss sandwich with classic French Mornay sauce and served on a brioche, topped with a fried egg! Comes with a Petite salad.|
|Le Burger de Madame||Burger is served on a toasted brioche bun and piled sky high with hickory smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, Mimi’s own Thousand Island dressing and a fried egg!|
Out of the items above, I personally tried The Grilled Salmon Salad Nicoise, Bouillabaisse, Bistro Bavette Steak, Saint-Malo Pasta, and the Brioche Croque Madame. I loved the Brioche Croque Madame and the Salmon Salad Nicoise. Those two were definitely my personal favorites. The flavors were amazing and both dishes were very satisfying to the palate.
I also tried two awesome breakfast items coming on October two. They were both waffle dishes made with some of my favorite ingredients. They were:
Strawberry Waffle Perdu – Mimi’s original pain perdu filling of cream cheese and orange marmalade on three golden brown petite waffles topped with fresh strawberry sauce. 7.99
Bacon Apple Waffle – Three golden brown petite waffles topped with apples, hickory-smoked bacon, syrup and a hint of orange zest. 7.49
This whole menu is reasonably priced for high quality menu items and ingredients. Make sure you visit Mimi’s Café soon to check out their awesome new appetizers, entrees, and breakfast specials! Let me know what you think about the new menu item selections below!

Oh my word this menu looks delicious. Many of the items I’ve never had the opportunity to try, and must admit not sure I’d want to. Not a fan of mussels but I know a lot of people love them. I’d be all over those Bacon Apple Waffles though. When you return to Mimi’s Cafe Dani…have a round for me 😉

Thanks for the comment Jason:) Enjoy!
I live in Montgomery, Alabama. Anxiously awaiting the new menu. If you plan to have a free sample tasting night, I would love to be included. I have been waiting so long for a restaurant to serve something “different” and home made. If that’s not possible, do you have a discount coupon. Thanks in advance.
I am a blogger that writes for all different restaurants, events, travel and products and i am invited to different events. However, I am not the event coordinator for Mimi’s. I would post on their facebook page and ask them though:) yOu will love that new menu!! :)Have a great night Barbara! 🙂 Thanks for the comment!
The food looks great
Thank you for commenting Sherminita:)
