While hiking through Zion National Park, my husband and I decided to stop at Meme’s café in Springdale, Utah. There are a lot of small restaurants in the area. With little cell service and other things to do, I didn’t scout out restaurants. We saw a few listed and just chose Memes.
We arrived around 11:30 on a Sunday and Meme’s was crowded. That is one of the busiest times to eat out so if they aren’t crowded, that is never a good sign. There is indoor and outdoor seating. I wanted to eat outdoors. However, there was no room. We sat inside at the closest table near the door.
The coffee came in a huge mug, with plenty of whipped cream. It was brewed hot. I noticed a sign on the front that said that one of their coffee machines weren’t working, but that was fine as the coffee was great.
Meme’s café is known for the crepes, so I decided to order the “Poppa’s Harvest Crepe” which came with apples, caramel, and topped with whipped cream. I can’t remember the last time I had a crepe, but the food was good. It was stuffed with baked apples and topped with whipped cream. So how could I hate it?
The service at Meme’s was terrible. We came at peak time, which was no big deal and we are easily able to wait, however, our waitress was not friendly. After waiting for several minutes, another waitress said: “your waitress will be right with you”. Then another 5 minutes passed, and she came over. We were in the restaurant for at least 20 minutes before ordering. We watched as every other waitress was much more friendly and prompt with guests. Finally, when it was time to pay the bill, the waitress brought back the credit card with food all over it.
For the crepe and coffee, the cost was $11.
Overall/Would I Come Back?
I liked the food and coffee at Meme’s. However, the service was terrible. I’m not sure I would go back.
