us have been to Mimi's Café
on many occasions, such as work-related meetings, retirements,
breakfast, lunch, and other times, as the restaurant is located
only a few minutes from work, the food is great, the service
is always superior, and it's clean and comfortable. Yet
in the nearly four years since the Sacramento Breakfast Club
was formed, we, as a club, just never paid Mimi's Café
a visit. All of that changed on Friday, April 1, 2011,
when it was David's turn to choose the location of today's meeting,
and he chose Mimi's Café...
which was an excellent choice.
The early morning light on this beautiful Friday morning
makes Mimi's attractive building look absolutely stunning. It's
beautifully landscaped, very clean, and there's lots of free
has a large main dining room, and then a smaller, more intimate
dining room next to the full-service bar. The decor is
absolutely beautiful, complete with natural lighting and high
ceiling. Our friendly server, Deb, takes Bev's order.
We sat at a table for six, as there were five of us today.
We met for breakfast at 0800, and the well-equipped bar
was open, but none of us enjoyed any orders from the bar, due
to the early hour of the morning, the fact that we all had to
drive, and in my case, I had to be to work in the afternoon.
There is additional dining to the rear of the photo. The
area around the bar is more intimate, as the lighting is somewhat
subdued and the ceiling is lower.
Deb poses with my order of a Monterey Omelet and Dan's
Santa Fe Omelet. With the exception of David, who ordered
corn beef hash, all of us ordered omelets.

Deb for taking the photo.
I ordered a Monterey Omelet, which had three eggs, jack
cheese onions, three slices of bacon, and more cheese and sliced
avocados on top. Fried red potatoes, toast, chipotle salsa,
and a glass of juice were included with the meal. The
food was cooked perfectly, and the breakfast was absolutely
delicious. The salsa added a nice touch, as I dipped my
potatoes in it... soooo good! As of this writing, about
five hours after enjoying this delicious breakfast, I'm still
full... no lunch for me today, and a very light dinner tonight!
you definitely get your money's worth!
we're quite aware that the Mimi's, located on Alta Arden, is
one link in a chain of restaurants that span the country, and,
yes, we normally avoid chain restaurants, but occasionally we
like to break out of the mold, and we enjoy good food... and
serves good food, in a family-friendly atmosphere, and offers
efficient, friendly service, and the prices are reasonable.
Chain restaurant aside, Mimi's Café
is a great place to enjoy breakfast and is highly recommended
by members of the Sacramento Breakfast Club.
