I/We have been to Michael's several times. I'm surprised I haven't reviewed it and also surprised there is only one review. Perhaps because it is most always full, people just don't see the need? Anyway - they have very good breakfast/brunch and lunch options with a 'Daily Specials' board which always has tasty items on it. Closes at 2PM I... More

This restaurant is a very nice place to have breakfast or lunch Since there only open from 8am-2:30pm. And I have not tried there in house cheesecake but I hear it is Devine.

Well the hashbrowns were barely warm and very deepfried. It was good once; it was a go to place. I think it has just outgrown itself and can't put out the quality it once had. I still go once in a while hoping it will recapture my love but would not bring guests again as I have dissapointed them by... More

Great place to go for Eggs Benny (or other breakfast fare) their home made hash browns are chunky and crunchy, and so good. Mostly been there for breakfast, but the lunch menu is pretty good too, good soup!

After reading the reviews about 'best eggs benny' we decided to give it a try. I wouldn't give it the title 'best' by far as my hollandaise sauce was virtually non existent and watery. The eggs were cooked good but not piping hot as they should be, and after eating my stomach apparently didn't like what I just gave it.... More

The service and decore of this restaurant is fabulous. The chef even took the time to come and ask how I found the dessert :) The food was good, the beer selection however is quite lacking- only one available- but I enjoyed it here.

I've visited twice, and was very pleased with the food, and the service. Quality is excellent, everything tasted the way I'd expect food prepared with skill would taste. A bit cramped, with a lot of tables in a small space, but that seems to add to the ambiance. For breakfast or lunch, it can't be beat.
