Meemo’s Popular Bakery Now Offers Breakfast and Lunch Menu
**Full Disclosure: I received breakfast in exchange for my review, but not to worry, all opinions are 100% mine.
Meemo’s Bakery not only has a new location, they also have an extended menu. Since opening their new location at 2611 Wagon Wheel St., this eatery has been able to make good use of the larger space. Amber, co-owner, baker and decorator extraordinaire at Meemo’s started baking cakes and sweet treats over 30 years ago. In 2011 she took the leap and opened her first shop off Sunset Rd. The popular bakery, needing to move this year, wanted a space close to her original location and established clientele.
And as luck would have it, Amber is married to a talented chef, Andrew Gonzalez. Andrew has been a chef in San Antonio for over 35 years working at many establishments including the Hyatt Hill Country Resort & Spa and the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa. Given the opportunity to move into a larger location, Amber had a vision for the bakery. She soon asked Andrew to partner with her at the bakery and put his delicious cooking talents to work. So now Meemo’s Bakery is Meemo’s Bakery & Cafe.
The restaurant has two separate kitchens, one for the bakery and one for the cafe all with a nice sized dining area in between. The bakery area offers a space for clients to design their wedding and other special occasion cakes, a space for the shop’s decorators to create their masterpieces and also its own kitchen and baking area. There are display cases in the dining room where patrons can pick and choose ready-made cookies, cupcakes and cakes to go.
Wedding and special occasion cakes are Meemo’s Bakery specialty. When you have a need for a cake, set up an appointment for a complimentary cake tasting. They have many decorating ideas for you to check out. And make the holidays special with one of their cakes, pies or their holiday cookies. They make it & bake it and you and your guests get to relax and enjoy the deliciousness. Holidays made simple! They even offer vegan and sugar-free options.

The cafe has a large prep and work station as well as everything any chef requires and would be proud to work in. Hungry for a sweet breakfast? Then try the Death by Chocolate French Toast (regular French toast topped and filled with their special chocolate ganache, a chocolate chip butter (what!) and chocolate whipped cream. How about a not so traditional egg dish like Croque Madame, a gooey mix of grilled ham and gruyere cheese sandwiched between French Toast battered bread of choice and topped with a sunny side up egg all drizzled with hollandaise sauce. Oh, and of course the Croque Madame comes with homestyle potatoes.
Or maybe you want to go for more traditional and try a Breakfast Skillet! They offer several varieties of the skillet, but I liked the Gravy Skillet with homestyle potatoes that have been grilled with bell peppers, onions, tomato and jalapenos. It’s all topped with sausage gravy and two eggs any style. Whatever you decide on, any of their breakfast items are sure to delight you and will fill you up with goodness.
Lunch selections include fresh salads made from in-season produce. All salads are served with a choice of 8 dressings all made from scratch. You will find warm, savory soups that are made in-house every day. In addition to cold sandwiches like Pimento Cheese, Traditional BLT or Chicken Salad, they offer spectacular grown up Grilled Cheese sandwiches like: Gruyere, roasted mushrooms & sauteed onion, a ham, cheddar or Swiss cheese with Arugula and Caramelized onions or a Jalapeno Popper Grilled cheese (roasted jalapenos, cream cheese, cheddar cheese and bacon). OMG, any one of these is a slice of heaven!
Everything at Meemo’s is made fresh daily from scratch using only real food like fruit, real dairy butter and cream. They don’t use any prepackaged ingredients, artificial flavorings, shortening, oil or mixes. Even their cake fillings are made from real fruit and sugar only. You won’t find gelatin or other ingredients in their fillings. They believe you can taste the difference and that’s why customers have been coming back year after year.
