After reading the reviews for Mimi's in the Sacramento magazine, we opted to go there for my birthday dinner tonight. The food was not much better than at Eppie's/Denny's, although the decor is nicer. I ordered a small Blue Cheese & Walnut Salad as a starter, which was the highlight of the meal. However, it contained a couple of ingredients which weren't mentioned on the menu. My main dish consisted of a flat-iron steak, which the menu promised was drenched in caramelized onions & garlic mushrooms. Hmmph! The whole lot was tasteless. Not an ounce of flavor. The vegetables, horror or horrors, arrived in what appeared to be their microwave baggie!!! I decided to taste the gravy before drowning the rest of the meal in it. Hah!!! It was gross pre-packed goop! Yuck. Still willing to give Mimi's one more shot at redemption, I ordered the "signature" bread pudding for dessert. I assume that Mimi is illiterate & never learned to write. The pudding, as any bread pudding enthusiast will tell you, should be moist & light & should taste as though there actually is an 'inner pudding.' This impostor could have been sold as cement boots. Heavy, tasteless & stodgy. The sauce was overpoweringly whisky flavored. I wondered whether there actually was any whiskey in it, or whether whiskey flavoring had been used. I would willingly reduce the portion size & add a decent sauce in exchange for dairy cream. The synthetic junk did nothing to improve the flavor, or my mood, obviously.
I ended with a cappuccino, which is where I should have begun. It's true: if the coffee's lousy, chances are the food will be too. Mine tasted like over-roasted beans and scalded milk. The cups were large, but by the time they arrived, half an inch of cappu was in the saucer, rendering it impossible to drink.

Tender roast beef to die for! Melt-in-your mouth breads! Pain perdue (orange/cream cheese stuffed French toast) with mounds of sweet cream butter! Quiches, soups, sandwiches, salads...oh! Just everything as tasty as can be, and the service has always been excellent. Cheerful, sunny, cozy, and we just love it! Go there! Enjoy there!
