Dining Guide for Families in Orange County

Mother’s Day at Mimi’s

We dined as a guest of the venue

Mimi's Cafe

There are only a few restaurants in Orange County that cater to multiple generations like Mimi’s Cafe. Mimi’s is a dining destination where my children and my grandma would all enjoy a flavorful meal in a family-friendly environment. It has always been one of my go-to restaurants for multi-generational family celebrations, and it’s a perfect place for families to celebrate Mother’s Day together this year.

Since we are going to be in Florida for Disney Social Media Moms over Mother’s Day, we had an early Mother’s Day celebration at our local Mimi’s Cafe. We had a chance to sample some of the dishes being offered on their three-course menu for $16.99 per person.

Spinach Dip at Mimi's

For a starter, there is the option of a house salad, caesar salad, cup of soup or croissant muffin. There is also the option of adding hand-mixed guacamole and chips ($7.99) or warm spinach artichoke dip ($8.99) for an additional charge. We couldn’t help but resist trying their spinach artichoke dip, and it was love at first bite. The dip was warm, creamy, and flavorful. It was paired to perfection with crispy chips, and our children devoured every bite of the appetizer.

Mushroom and Brie Burger at Mimi's

There are six main course options including; quiche florentine, brioche french toast, slow roasted turkey, mushroom brie burger, chicken chopped salad and grilled Atlantic salmon. My husband ordered the mushroom brie burger, and while he has never been a huge fan of mushrooms, thought it was one of the best burgers he has had. The juicy burger and melted brie cheese were the perfect combinations, and when paired with a serving of crispy french fries, it was unforgettable.

Salmon at Mimi's Cafe

While my husband was enjoying his burger, it was the Atlantic salmon that tantalized my taste buds. The fresh piece of seafood was served over a bed of sautéed garlic spinach, baked cheesy gratin, and topped with a light chardonnay dijon sauce. The salmon far exceeded my expectations and quickly became my new favorite dish to enjoy at Mimi’s.

For dessert, they are offering chocolate chip croissant bread pudding, strawberry shortcake crepe cake, or key lime slab pie. We were too full from all the delicious goodness we had enjoyed having dessert, but we could see guests at other tables smiling with every bite of their desserts.

Bread at Mimi's

It wasn’t just the food that made our dining experience at Mimi’s magical, but also the service. There are few restaurants that I can say have the best service in Orange County, and Mimi’s is one of them. Our server, Joy, was a real “Joy” and never let our drinks get less than 1/2 empty. From her contagious smile to attention to detail, made her one of the best servers we have ever had, and Mimi’s is lucky to have her working for them.

While dining at Mimi’s during Mother’s Day, they will be offering $5 mimosas, $5 glasses of wine, and $20 bottles of wine. Mom can select from a Mimi-Mosa, Triple Berry Mimosa, Mango Mimosa or White Peach Mimosa.
