Mimi's Cafe – OremPosted: March 1, 2011 Filed under: James and the Giant Peach Leave a comment
Feeling especially dangerous, Roni and I recently decided to eat in at a restaurant. We had all been out shopping, and time had slipped by us. We were in the neighborhood of Mimi’s Cafe, and Roni suggested that we eat there. I really didn’t feel like going home and cooking, so I agreed. We had been there in the past and the food had always been at least acceptable.
The Bwun was getting hungry by the time we were seated, and we asked if we could go ahead and get an order for his food in first, so that it would come out before ours. I always appreciate when servers are accommodating in this way. Our server quickly took the Bwun’s order for macaroni and cheese and came back to get our order. This was probably the only high note in our experience.
What can I say about food that was boring, uninspired and not worth the cost? Not much. The meat in my turkey sandwich was dry and overcooked, the sauce for Roni’s chicken was far too sweet, and the Bwun’s food came out of a Kraft food box.
Food Quality: 2
Portion Size: 3
Overall Experience: 2.5
Price (per dish): $7-$14
tl;dr: Poor quality of the meal makes this spot not worth the trip.

I don’t crave sweet things very much anymore. Except at bedtime. And in the morning. And while I’m at class.
Please take that as a warning, and don’t hold me responsible for any weight you gain after this post.
