Creating Memories at Mimi’s Cafe

I am a Mimi’s Ambassador

Whenever my daughter has a day off of school, we spend the afternoon having lunch together. We love trying new places around Orange County and also dining at some of our favorites like Mimi’s Cafe. It had been awhile since we had dined at Mimi’s Cafe, and we always tend to dine at the restaurant during dinner, so we decided to stop in for lunch on Veterans Day.

When we arrived, there was a line that went out the door. Everyone in Irvine had the same idea in mind of having lunch at Mimi’s Cafe that afternoon. The staff worked quickly to get every guest seated at a quick pace, and within minutes we were sipping on ice tea and looking over the lunch menu.

While we were looking over the menu, our server brought us out a basket of warm bread to enjoy with freshly made butter. The comforting bread made us lean towards a comfort food for our appetizer, and we settled on ordering the warm spinach artichoke dip. The delicious dip was rich, creamy and melted in our mouth with every bite.

Since I went on the richer side for an appetizer, I decided to go light and fresh for my main entree by ordering the chopped cob. The salad burst with flavor and featured hand-carved turkey, avocado, tomatoes, green onions, crumbled bleu cheese, hickory-smoked bacon and chopped egg. The salad was tossed with ranch dressing and was paired to perfection with a freshly baked muffin.

While I was savoring my salad, it was the turkey pesto ciabatta that tantalized the taste buds of my daughter. The sandwich was massive (large enough for two people to share) and featured hand-carved slow-roasted turkey, bacon, mozzarella, tomato, baby greens, avocado and basil pesto mayo on grilled ciabatta. It was paired with fresh french fries and was one of the best sandwiches that my daughter has ever had.

We enjoyed every minute of our afternoon at Mimi’s Cafe, and we can’t wait to come back to create more memories together. When looking for somewhere where you’ll feel at home and will experience superior service, I highly recommend Mimi’s Cafe. Find your closest Mimi’s Cafe online.
