Breakfast at Mimi’s Cafe

I didn’t have to play until 3 PM on Thursday so Karen and I decided to have a nice leisurely breakfast that morning. We took an Uber to a quaint cafe in the Desert Ridge shopping area called Mimi’s Cafe. It was really only a 15 minute walk but neither of us wanted to walk to be honest. LOL.

The place is super cute. And, at 8 AM, we were the first customers there. They used to open at 6:30 AM before the COVID pandemic but they reduced their hours and still haven’t changed it back.

I’ve never been to France but I think they were going for the French cafe feel based on the interior decor.

I had the option of a side of toast, muffin, or croissant with my breakfast and, after our server Jessie told us that they bake their own muffins fresh daily, I had to get a muffin. This was probably the most delicious chocolate chip muffin I’ve ever had. It was so fresh that steam came out when I cut into it.

This was a good-sized muffin too — plenty for both me and Karen to enjoy. Here’s a pic of it with Karen in the background for perspective.

Here are some pics of Karen’s delicious French toast. The first one wasn’t done all the way so they had to remake it and bring her out another. It came out perfectly gooey the second time around.

I got to try a couple of bites and it was amazing. I will definitely go back and get this next time. I think Karen was happy with her meal. 😉

Here’s a picture of my meaty omelet.

Our server overheard us raving about the delicious muffins and wanting to bring them back to Wichita that he gave us four muffins to go – for free!

We gave one box to Lauren for her and Lea, and then we kept the other box. It came in handy over the weekend as we enjoyed them courtside while watching the pro matches. The Arizona sun heated them up perfectly and they were as amazing as they were had we eaten them fresh out of the oven.

The resort gave us a 50% OFF coupon code to use by the end of the year. I’m seriously contemplating going back with Brian. Until next time. GNG.
