No matter where you travel it seems that there is always a taste of an American pancake-well Memo's is the place! It was standing room only on the morning of our visit and breakfast! Value is excellent. Very casual (as it is everywhere here), no rush feeling to eat and run, and menu selection HUGE. Make sure to take your... More

A PV tradition that hasn't lost its charm nor its ability to deliver on breakfast. We first found Memo 20 years ago and have made it a traditional stop every year since. Amazingly Memo is still graciously greeting and seeking his customers which by the time we left were lined up out the door, a sure sign that his reputation... More

Love this place, go back here every year for breakfast. Nice selection of pancakes and more breakfast items. My favorite item I just ordered was the French raisin cinnamon toast, yummy..... Coffee is excellent as well as service. Depending on time be prepared to wait 15 minutes or more, very popular after 10 am...

I must admit I personally haven't tried a lot of items on the menu. My husband and friends have and they like everything they have tried. I am hooked on the Hawaiian Pancakes and I can't order anything else when I go there. Best pancakes I have ever eaten. I sometimes have the "Pancake Sandwich" - 2 eggs, Canadian bacon... More

We had breakfast here on our last day in PV. We wanted to have a filling meal because we would not be having anything substantial to eat until we arrived home later that evening. We were not disappointed. We ordered the Anna Banana and Peanut Delight pancakes. When they arrived we knew we had chosen the right breakfast location. The... More

Have not eaten here for many years but our friends wanted to eat breakfast here. The food is pretty much standard as far as the menu. Our waiter spoke excellent English and was very attentive. My issue is the owner always seems grumpy and unfriendly. Probably will not eat here again. Too many other options.

As in previous years Memo's is where we have breakfast several times. Our favorites are Eggs Benedict, strawberry blintzes and omelettes. They also offer traditional Mexican breakfast, pancakes and other items.

Let's start with why I gave Memo's 1 star. Most of it had to deal with who I suspect was Memo and his complete lack of hospitality and customer service. There were four of us (all locals), sitting next to a wonderful couple from Seattle who have visited Vallarta for 2 months for the last 13 years. The lady sitting... More

The eggs Benedict were okay. A little overdone but the sauce was good tasting. The eggs rancheros were cooked correctly but the sauce just okay and the beans were traditional if you like that kind of beans. On the other hand sitting on the garden area having breakfast was unbeatable
