So I will be sharring different places I go to eat around here in So. Calif.
Today I had lunch at a cute restaurant called Mimi's Cafe. When you first pull up in the parking lot you can see it's going to be a fun place inside.
The outside is built to look like a cottage with beautiful flowers everywhere.
Even though you are inside, there are little places that you get the feel you are sitting at an outdoor Cafe in New Orleans.
There are special touches everywhere you look. Like these cute flowers that are in blue water bottles.
The tables are set with cute black and white checkered table clothes. Pictures on the wall showing fun jazz scenes.
Signs written in French.
Even a little bar area where you can pull up a seat and eat or just have a cup of coffee or a nice glass of wine.
If you are in the mood for some fresh air then sit outside in the darling patio area.
We started off our meal with some yummy fried zucchini. It's served with grated Parmesan cheese on top, ranch dressing and marinara sauce on the side.
Then I had some delicious corn chowder and a lemon and sour cream muffin.
I finished off with a great salad. It was chocked full of baby greens, dried cranberries, strawberries, walnuts, feta cheese, tomatoes and for those that like it, bacon. I don't eat meat but today I forgot to say to leave the bacon off so I just pushed the bacon aside. This salad is topped with a wonderful balsamic vinaigrette.
Boy was I full after all this food. There was no room for desserts.
But I knew tonight while I was watching TV there would be. So down the road I went.
On the way in I noticed the flowers outside. So pretty!
Oh no! With all the different kinds of pies to choose from I had no idea what to get. They all sounded so good. But in the end I picked one that I have never had before and thought I would give it a try.
I got a fresh Olallie berry pie. The girl waiting on me said it tastes like raspberries and black berries mixed. Sounded good to me. Can't wait to try it.
What about you? Do you have some favorite places you like to eat?
