- About Us ∨
Where did you grow up? I grew up in the Liberton area of Edinburgh. I stayed in the Southside of the city until 2010 and have now moved to the Shore area of Leith and truly love it!
How would you describe the magic of Mimi’s? I have tried to create a unique vibe and ensure Mimi’s conjures up feelings of warmth and always provides friendly efficient service. Our cakes are made with the best ingredients we can source and hope this conveys our passion for what we do.
Mimi’s Bakehouse turned 5 last December, what have been your top 5 moments over these years?
As a family business, what is like working with your three daughters? I love working with the girls, it’s fabulous watching them grow as young professionals. I feel privileged to be able to see them every day and still maintain our close relationship.What advice would you give to future bakers? Use the best ingredients you can afford, weigh ingredients carefully as baking is an exact science and mistakes are often made by not weighing out carefully. Also don’t be afraid to experiment!
What are your 3 top restaurants/ cafes in Edinburgh? Scran and Scallie, The Kitchin and La Favorita.
What would be the top attractions you’d recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh? I love the Royal Mile from top to bottom: it allows tourists to take in the lovely atmosphere of the old town. The National Museum of Scotland is always a favourite with families and Rose loves it too.
