Are you interested in a great dinner out?

Here is your chance. I have a $25 Mimi's Cafe Gift Card to giveaway, and I am thrilled.

Personally, I don't want to lie here, but I had NEVER been to a Mimi's Cafe. In fact, I knew of only one and very rarely drive to that area of Cincinnati.

As many of you may remember, I went to a Bob Evan's Blogger event in 2009. While there, I learned that they own Mimi's Cafe, too. In fact, they gave me a $50 Gift Card to try the establishment out with my family.

Well, months later I finally packed my whole family into the minivan and we headed for a weekend night out and then dinner at Mimi's.

First, I have to say I was thinking it was like a Panera or a deli. I have NO idea why? I guess the word Cafe just through me for a loop. But, it is not like that at all.

I had planned on taking video of my 7 year old son talking about the restaurant ( but, procrastinated and now my video camera is full after Christmas ). He couldn't stop chatting the whole time we were there. "Mom, this is a fancy restaurant. Mom, the music is great, isn't it? Dad, are we dressed up enough to be here? Hey, look at that on the wall!"

OK, don't get too concerned that is is THAT fancy. You don't need formal attire. But to my son, who usually only goes out for pizza or Skyline Chili ( a Cincinnati specialty ), he knew it was something special for us. In fact, we ordered appetizers and even dessert! :)

For my husband and I, we honestly enjoyed it. We will be going back. And, my son was right. From the lighting to the music to the decor, it was very nice and welcoming. It was even a step up from our Bar & Grill nights out together. And, don't let me overlook the food. It was "yummy" as the kids said!

Would you like to take a look at their menu? Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are available. They also have a Kids menu.

So, now I must thank Bob Evans for giving me another $25 Gift Card to giveaway to my readers! And, if you win, I would love for you to come back and let me know what you thought of Mimi's Cafe, too!
