My mother, sister Amy and I got there just as they were closing up Sunday dinner (noon), so we had the cafe to ourselves. I ordered “Unsweet” to drink … it tasted like glucose. Their “Sweet” tea would put me in a coma.

“Meat and Three” : meatloaf, sweet coleslaw, creamed corn, mashed & gravy:

    That Strawberry Pretzel Salad is enough to make me hop in my Studebaker and drive cross country to go to Mi Mi’s. This place not only looks like a perfect Kitsch palace but has a menu to match. The creamed corn spilling over the side of the bowl is heaven. And don’t start me on the Mile High Coconut Pie. If this were close to my house I’d buy myself a gift certificate there for the next year and be very happy not going anywhere else. This is where I want my birthday party next year to be.

    Oh my! if you get Mi Mi’s you’re in for a treat when you visit Alabama. The whole state is real time kitsch. I’m going to submit photos of the grocery aisles at FoodLand, where the “small” size jar of extra-heavy mayonnaise is a gallon. I just know I’m going to win another Certifikitsch.
