Mama's Royal Café/Felix Fine Mexican & Seafood Restaurant Review

Claiming to have "the best damn breakfast restaurant in the entire country," Mama's is a casual, lively, indoor-outdoor spot in Cabo San Lucas that serves up bountiful plates of omelets and poached eggs with avocado and ham, and finger-licking fried potatoes. Also claiming to serve the "World's Best French Toast"—a treasure stuffed with cream cheese, strawberries, mangoes, bananas, pecans, and topped with orange liqueur, Mama's have a right to this claim. At night, the colorful restaurant morphs into Felix and serves traditional Mexican dishes like chiles en nogada (chilies in walnut sauce), pozole (pork soup with hominy, onion, garlic, dried chilies, and cilantro), along with a lineup of more than 30 unusual salsas. Owner Spencer Moore, the amiable salsa guru, shares all his cooking and salsa "secrets" on the restaurant's website.

    Mama's Royal Café (by day)/Felix' Fine Mexican & Seafood Restaurant (at night) Review

    One of the best breakfast places in the world. A wonderful menu with many, many, many good selections. My wife and I drove into town and ate at Mama's every day during our six day stay in Cabos San Lucas. It's a little hard to find the first time because it shares space with Felix's restaurant, which uses it at night. But it's right across from Maro's Shrimp Factory on Hildago St. A true don't miss eating experience.

    Mama's Royal Café (by day)/Felix' Fine Mexican & Seafood Restaurant (at night) Review

    We went to Mama's for breakfast two days ago and had a terrible experience. Their website had offered coupons for free fresh orange juice with your meal (which they've since changed in the last two days). The coupon said "print as many as you want, no restrictions apply." After I handed the server coupons for four juices, the bill came back charging me $14 dollars for them. When I asked why they were included on the bill and asked to see a manager, the owner (an American) came out and said "I can't be giving out free orange juice!" I said I expected him to live up to what his coupons had so clearly promised - and which had encouraged me to go. He saidit was a mistake and there was no way he was going to honor his own coupons. I told him it was outrageous and a blatant bait and switch. He was condescending and incredibly rude, arguing with me at length right in front of his other customers. When I refused to be taken advantage of, he eventually relented and they took them off the bill - but he told me we were never welcome in his restaurant again (not that I would ever consider returning). I urge people to avoid this place like the plague. He was the only person in a five day visit to Cabo who tried to rip us off.
