My son had one wish for when the school year ended — a father-son camping trip to Zion National Park. Never one to let him down, I reserved our camp site months in advance. And, after the two hour drive from Vegas, we were looking for a place to eat before entering the park and setting up camp. A short drive from the entrance to Zion is Meme’s Cafe, positioned just off the main road in a relatively new building. Inside is a modest interior with pics of the Eiffel Tower and other art that reinforces the French motif. A small patio right by the entrance overlooks the road.
With a breakfast menu showcasing a variety of crepes, it only made sense for me to try one. The traditional breakfast crepe ($8.99) was a great choice. The soft, thin crepe was stuffed with an ample amount of scrambled eggs, bacon and cheddar cheese, and topped with a buttery rich Hollandaise. For the kid, he opted for a soft, yet crispy edged Belgian waffle ($6.99) topped with powdered sugar and a mound of whipped cream.
Both of us were equally stuffed and satisfied and ready to hike off the calories. We didn’t have time for a return visit this trip, but the well executed and refined breakfast fare make Meme’s a go-to spot the next time we’re in town.
