It’s been quite some time since I wrote about a great place to write. But a few weeks ago I found one. It was quite unexpected.
It’s getting cooler here… yes, even in Southern California autumn is visible and feelable. A couple weeks ago, I knew I’m going to be cool sitting outside and writing, and there was a breeze that can make writing on paper a bit uncomfortable at times. Besides, I hadn’t eaten that day and was a bit hungry.
I discovered ‘Mimi’s Bistro & Bakery’ in Thousand Oaks and found it inviting on the outside. I decided to go in and see if I could stay for a while, eat, and write.
It was homey and cozy inside as well, and I had a wonderful waitress, called Melissa. They have a quite attractive menu here:
I told Melissa who I am and what I planned, and she beamed like the sunshine and invited me to stay as long as I liked. She paid really good attention to me, did not constantly disturb me, and counted on me looking at her if I needed something.
I was in Mimi’s Bistro for about three and a half hours and loved it! The food is great, the staff was wonderful and polite, and since then, I had been back at ‘Mimi’s’ and enjoyed the ambiance and Melissa’s service again. Drop by and enjoy it!
That particular location of Mimi’s Bistro and Bakery can be found here:
400 N Moorpark Rd.
Thousand Oaks, CA 91360
Phone: (805) 373-6161
If you ever go there, to eat – or write – or both, and you see Melissa, please tell her I said hi. She’s amazing!
