New extension for Mimi’s Bakehouse at The Shore

Mimi’s Bakehouse at The Shore has taken Leith by storm since opening its doors at the end of 2010. The family run business has been welcoming visitors from Edinburgh and beyond whilst serving up glorious food and cakes.

The new extension to Mimi’s opened this morning, creating a whole new area to sit down and relax in with friends.

We can confirm that it’s looking fabulous with the same Mimi’s decoration that visitors know and love, with lots of extra little touches. There are extra tables that increase the total capacity, but the staff at Mimi’s want everyone to be comfortable as they eat. The general feel of the place is certainly more spacious and there’s a clear walkway to the bathrooms.

There’s a new ‘soft seating’ area comprising of two velvet sofas which is perfect for small groups and is bookable in advance. Further soft chairs and tables fill up the rear wall.

The brand new kitchen is where the bread will be made each morning. During opening hours, you can peek through the glass windows of this new baking area and witness the cakes coming out of the oven and being decorated.

All in all, it’s the same great Mimi’s, but with more room to enjoy your food. We’ll be heading down there soon!
