“Some people say, ‘Oh, I’ll just come back and try that, but I don’t know, they don’t have any salads here’,” he said, referring to popular Canberra restaurants.
“Or, if they do have salads, they’ll probably get a few other things, and it’s nice for us to do that as well.”
James mimi said customers had a great time in his cafe.
“The best part about the experience is the people come here and they love us,” he explained.
“They say, we are the best cafe in the world, and we are also the best food in the place.”
And we’re just trying to give people a little bit of happiness and fun and relaxation, and they’ll love it.

When I first started out, it was very simple.
We were just a one-person operation,” he told ABC radio.”
Then when I got to a couple of different locations, I’ve really got to start thinking of how can I bring a whole family together.
“Mr. Mimis also said the cafe would also be open to the public, although he said “most of the time, we’ll only be open a few hours a day”.”
We will be open every day, we will be opening weekends, we won’t be open very much at all,” he confirmed.”
In general, we’d like to be open for three hours, five days a week.”‘
