Best food experience in the Seychelles! The Manager, Julien, is super friendly, serves excellent food, and provides the best service to customers. The cost is relatively low, every dish is between 45-200 rupees, certainly a great value for the very tasty food. We actually came back the next day to order the same ”fish of the day” and dessert! We had both the homemade coconut ice cream as well as the homemade coconut cheesecake, both were excellent! Mimi’s cafe is located approx. 700 meters away from Grand Anse. We highly recommend you to stop at Mimi’s Cafe to try the excellent fish and dessert!!!

We spent very pleasant moments in Mimi's Café chatting with warm-hearted owner Julienne and her family and tasting delicious creole food. The coconut vanilla cheesecake is so good!! But also the various fresh fruit juices. A very calm and sympathetic place. Julienne also provided us with much interesting information about flora, fauna, the school system... She speaks fluent creole, Fresh and English.

The food was really good and tasty. Specially the creole fish and the chicken curry. We were a big group and we went there twice., because we loved the first experience. The owners D Julianne was so nice and friendly…she’s the líder in baking coconut pies, cheesecake and ice cream. It’s was delicious.

Cozy restaurant on the way to Grand Anse. Food is made to order and you can tell that they take care to make each item thoughtfully. Seating is on the open air patio. My tuna sandwich was great. Catch of the day wasn’t available yet so my wife had the fish and chips, and this was also surprisingly great — real, fresh fish that was freshly battered and served piping hot. Coconut ice cream was a refreshing pick me up on a hot, humid day. They also had home-made banana chips in bags at the counter and these were fantastic. We were a bit stupid and expected that we could make a quick 20 minute pit stop to dash in and out — that will not be the case as everything is made fresh and the emphasis is on quality, not speed. Expect to spend an hour or so minimum to have languid, relaxed lunch here — it’s worth it.

Unfortunately, today’s visit to Mimi’s Cafe was not a pleasant experience. I’d heard lots of recommendations on their coconut cheesecake and ice-cream, so I was looking forward to try it on my last day on La Digue. Well, the location is lovely, and it is perfectly located on the way to Grand Anse. The cheesecake was ok, but not the best. The cheesecake I got served was plain, no decoration, no sauce. The coconut ice cream was tame in taste and had texture of shaved ice. But the true disappointment was the unfriendly service, I think one of the worst I have ever encountered. I arrived around 11am and was the first guest. The your woman working there simply seemed to be unwilling to open the cafe. She was unpleasant, rejective, spoke with an unfriendly voice. As I entered the cafe and greeted her, she asked “What do you want to have?”. I replied: “Well, what do you have?” Then she, with a facial expression of an offended teenager, retrieved a board with menu. But she didn’t show it to me, instead she placed it by the road, so that I had to go out of the cafe, stand again in front of it to read it. With her particularly unfriendly voice and body language, I felt not welcome. But I really wantt to try the cake and the ice-cream. I shouldn’t have, they were not worth it. I see w lot of positive reviews, so presumably other employees of the cafe are much nicer, and I was just unlucky to arrive at wrong time.

Good Evening Madam, Thank you for your review. we are sorry you had an unpleasant experience as we were not ready to open due to lack of staff at the time being and you insisted to come for a cheesecake. I am assuring you that 99% of clients that visits our café really appreciates our cheesecake and coco Ice cream which are both homemade. Firstly, our cheesecake is not served with any sauce unless you yourself want to taste it with something else. secondly, due to COVID 19 we are not giving Menu Cards. Our Menu is on the board IN front of the café so as stated earlier we were not ready to open so the menu board was not out yet. Thank you Mimi's café Management

If you return from Coco Beach you have to stop at Mimi‘s Cafe. A friend recommended the coconut cheesecake and when we tried it, it was amazing. One of the best cheesecakes we have ever tried. The lunch is great as well, we had fish and chips. Super friendly staff! Will recommend Mimis Cafe to anyone who will go to la digue

Amazing place in the middle of nature! The food is excellent and one feels that Juliette , the owner loves what she does and just wants to give people the best experience. I came back again and again to this place and tried almost everything from the creole buffet on Wednesday evening to the vegetable sandwich for lunch . Everything was amazing but the best of the best goes to the coconut cheesecake!! No word to describe it!! Certainly the best coconut cheesecake in the world- not that I have tried all of them but honestly it would be difficult to do better than this!!! A experience not to miss if you are in la digue. Also really worth a try is the ice cream - coconut or lemongrass flavor- both are marvelous 🤤🤤🤤🤤

A must visit on La Digue, particularly for their coconut cheesecake. Was tempted to order a full one rather than the slices as it was that great. To top it all off, they offer really great customer service. The owner was really nice and friendly and offered up some great tips to her clients. Their fish and chips as well as their chicken and chips also contained some secret ingredients with herbs and spices. It was really tasty. This place is definitely one I have to go again and most likely a must stop at on every La Digue trip. It is located on the road to Grand Anse so a great stop over spot. Highly recommended you visit Mini’s cafe.

The food was amazing, it was vegetarian and vegan friendly, the staff was very kind, and the restaurant has a good location. The best part was the fresh coconut ice cream, and my eldest son loved the cheesecake. It was so good we came twice! You have to try this place if you ever come to la digue.

We spent 6 days in LaDigue and it was the best place to eat or drink a fresh fruit juice. The kitchen is very clean and they cook clean and tasty. Best at desserts: cocount ice-cream and also the coconut cheesecake. I loved the fresh fruit juice the most also here, so pure and tasty, without added sugar ❤️ and its on the way to the beach

We first stopped at Mimi's for homemade Ice cream and Cheesecake and we were amazed! They are really delicious and full of flavour. We decided to book for Creole Buffet and again we were very happy. The octopus curry, grilled fish and gratinated bread fruit were out of this world! Totally recommend, you shouldnt miss the cheecake!

The place to be in La Digue island, perfect lunch, dessert and dinner, the coconut ice-cream and cake are delicious, the lunch are fresh and the card is very large, you can choice a big various food and also creole food. The meals are generous and very fresh. Every wednesday, you can enjoy an amazing dinner, a creole buffet, very well cooked and prepared by a team (Julienne and Lisa and the boys at the barbecue), the astmosphere is very nice and familial, you feel like at home and even better! I advise you to book asap for creole buffet because it has a lot of success !! If you would like to have a fresh drink or an ice-cream, don't miss the coconut ice-cream or cake, or the fresh fruits cocktail, you will love it for sure! Julienne and Lise are very nice and smiling girls, they do the best to offer you a great moment. The place is far away touristic places in La Digue, you can relax in their restaurant that is very close of one of the most famous beaches of the island.

Was the perfect spot to have coconut cheesecake and coconut ice cream on our way back from Anse Coco. Menu posted outside. Order and pay at the window. Casual eats. Coconut cheesecake (100 SCR) is light and creamy. Ice cream (100 SCR) is also homemade, flaky, and airy.

We were deciding whether to come to Mimi’s or the other competitors down the road. I am so pleased we chose here!! Ivan (one of the owners) personally introduced himself, told us a little about his history here and it was wonderful. The food was sensational, proper, home cooked, fresh food! I had the grilled fish and rice and my husband had the burger. Both were served with Creole sauce which was delicious. We would HIGHLY recommend visiting here on your trip to la Digue!
