MIMIS CAFE 84 QUAIL SPRINGS

OKLAHOMA CITY OK 73134
So this is my birthday weekend (ok, technically it’s not until Monday but I like to celebrate for a few days). I really wanted to go somewhere nice but with my son those days are just over so I have to opt for family friendly atmospheres.
We drove past a little cute place called “Mimi’s Café” and I just had to go. In case you do not know I am a huge café person. I was telling my husband just today how I could live on French food forever since it was pretty much coffee and carbohydrates, yummy my favorites. I was so excited when we walked through the door seeing how since we have been here in Oklahoma I have yet to see a café and I do miss my all time favorite one “La Madeline” back in DC so very bad. As soon as we sat down I saw it was not French but New Orleans style cuisine. “Well, that is ok I can work with this” was my first thought. I ordered the Turkey meal (please do not even ask me why). I think I got all excited for Thanksgiving food early.
So, they brought my food out (ugh, gravy all over everything even though I asked for it on the side). Ok, so they bring a new plate out and well it was not bad but it was still cold so I am guessing it came straight from the freezer and was microwaved but not even enough. I was so very disappointed seeing how I had such high hopes. I guess no place will ever be my special “La Madeline” will it?
But on the bright side I ordered a café mocha and it was very tasty and HUGE. Look I even took a picture on my cell for you all to show you how huge it was. It was so big I could not even pick this cup up never mind the waiter spilt half of it all over the plate.
Grade: D (and I am being nice since I liked the Mocha).
