Breakfast
Mimi’s Bakehouse is a second-generation family business established in Edinburgh in 2010, when Michelle Phillips sold her family home to open a bakery café in Leith. We have gone on to build a local success story brand that gives people a ‘hug when they walk in the door’ as the original café has since doubled in size and the business has gained five more shops, a successful website selling cakes online and a concession at Archerfield Walled Garden. We also opened an industrial bakery in March 2020, out of which most online trade is produced for fulfilment. Mimi’s Bakehouse has become one of Edinburgh’s best-loved bakeries and an award-winning brand which is a well-known “feel good” place to visit, while remaining small enough to go the extra mile and try new things.

    A visit to Mimi’s Corstorphine was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. We booked online as advised but early in the day a walk in would have been fine as it was only open when we arrived. We ordered a Mars Cupcake, slice of Banana Biscoff cake and two homemade sodas. This was an early treat for my son’s 10th birthday as we had travelled on our Half Term Break from Holywood, N.Ireland. The sodas were so refreshing, cake was utterly sensational and cupcake really scrummy. The cupcake was brought to my son with a candle in it and ‘happy birthday’ on the plate. This was a lovely surprise and lovely personal touch. Staff were friendly, welcoming, courteous and demonstrated good levels of food hygiene. Value for money was brilliant. Next time we are in Edinburgh, we will definitely be back. Would highly recommend a visit to Mimi’s Bakehouse.

    Three of us met for morning coffee at Mimi's. I had a truly delicious cupcake and my companions shared a fruit scone - because the scones are enormous. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I was pleased that we were able to book a table - even though it was only for coffee. One of our number was visiting from Glasgow and it was good to know we would get a table at our chosen meeting.place.

    We went for afternoon tea, and the place is good for the price: very fresh baked goods and a good tea selection. Excellent scones, clotted cream, and raspberry jam, along with very tasty sausage roll pieces. However, the sandwiches felt very heavy on fat, and most of the petite sweet desserts tasted just like sugar and weren't very enjoyable. Additionally, the place looks worn and might benefit from cosmetic repairs.

    Really lovely wee birthday meal with my daughter. They even bought her a wee cupcake for free and she was so chuffed. We were unfortunately in a bit of a rush. Service was quick but friendly. We will be back again soon. Daughter loved kids sausage roll and she had some of my banana biscoff waffle for pudding. The waffle was amazing as always! Thank you!

    Purchased Eggs Benedict & Bacon for two and two lattes. Crumpets served were very small and chewy defrosted in microwave, eggs & bacon served were ok but very small portions , not good value. Can’t fault the lattes .

    It was good! BUT definitely not worth the price I feel, £50 (for 2) for a few sandwiches and a few small cakes is a bit too much, would go back for a coffee and a cake but wouldn’t do the afternoon tea again. Staff were lovely and friendly though! :)

    We had the Christmas afternoon tea. Beautifully presented and delicious. In particular I thought the Christmas Cake Brownie was phenomenal, I'm not usually a Brownie fan. The only negative comment I will make is that we felt it really cold. As it was afternoon tea we were there a couple of hours. We had a lovely booth table but as it was at the window it became extremely cold after a while.
