very good Eggs Benedict & Eggs Hussard in Modesto!

OUkid | Sep 1, 2002 10:44 AM

Saturday a.m. found me headed for VintageFaire Mall in nearby Modesto. DS (college kid) had some shopping to do too, so we went together & decided on a late breakfast at Mimi's Cafe. Mimi's is located adjoining the mall. No wait to be seated, nice atmosphere & we had a charming & attentive waitress. Very hard to choose from thier diverse breakfast menu. But I just love Eggs Benedict so I ordered those & DS decided to try the Eggs Hussard. I had a cafe latte to start--delicious! Our breakfasts were accompanied by choice of small juice, DS said his OJ tasted fresh-squeezed & my grapefruit juice was very good also. Our order arrived promptly & cooked perfectly! Nice thick ham slice under the poached eggs & just the right amt. of well-prepared Hollandaise sauce ladled over. I've usually found the most horrid variations of Hollandaise that could be imagined, from yucky cheese sauce mixes used to an awful pinkish concoction one time. Anyway...the breakfast at Mimi's is worth a try in my opinion. OUkid
