My knitting buddies and I met for LM’s birthday lunch today at Mimi’s Cafe. It is a chain of restaurants spread across the US. We have been to the one here and one in Knoxville, Tennessee. Judging by the packed parking lots, it is always a popular place.
The menu is large, but not confusing. The food is eclectic, with seasonal specialties, and downhome favorites. I understand the Chicken Potpie is a perennial favorite. Mac enjoyed the potpie when he ordered it in Knoxville. I have had the Thai Chicken Wrap, the Club Sandwich, and one of today’s seasonal featuress, the Pan Seared Scallops. It was a pasta dish with large scallops, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, spinach on fettucine with a tomato cream sauce. It was delicious. The price was reasonable for the amount of food received. Our bill for 2 sodas and three lunches was under $30.
My only complaint is that the room we were in was too noisy. There were three of us at a square table and we could hardly hear one another without shouting. Next time we will try a different room. Perhaps we will request a booth.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mimi’s Cafe to anyone.
