Proof that not all franchises suck, Mimi’s manages to serve up homestyle cuisine that tastes, well, like it was actually made at home. If stick-to-the-ribs fare like chicken pot pie, pot roast with gravy, meatloaf, grilled beef liver, slow-roasted turkey, and chicken Cordon Bleu float your boat, then set sail for Mimi’s. The sandwiches and soups are excellent as well, and Mimi’s bread pudding is highly addictive. There’s beer and wine too. www.MimisCafe.com.
