Always Excellent Food!

Chicken Fried Steak to die for! They have both Paleo and Gluten Free pancakes, great breakfast potatoes and I love the Market Spice Tea. We eat often at Michael D's when we are in Coeur d'Alene because the whole family loves it and each person has their own favorite dish!

We are seasonal residents in Cda, and went here for the first time this past week. I had the "shamless omelet" and my wife had an omelet with smoked salmon. The meals come with bread and potatoes. My wife got the zucchini bread which is a little full loaf and was very good. Both meals were top notch, and I... More

After reading online reviews, I choose this place for breakfast today. Bad choice. The rosemary potatoes apparently are not on the menu anymore or cooks forgot. The CFS was premade and gravy was nasty. Really wanted to like this place because of the great atmosphere but food was not good at all. My server was awesome though! Skip the $2.25... More

We have been eating breakfast here since Michael opened his restaurant, we love the omellets but don't care much for the expensive Doma coffee that he serves. We just load up on coffee at home before going to Michael D's for breakfast.

Michael D's consistently serves great breakfasts so when traveling we always stay at the motel across the street (was La Quinta--now Baymont Inn) so we can start the day here. Always fast and friendly service with an excellent breakfast menu.

As a local of CDA, I have been going to Michael's for 9+ years and ordinarily would rate this excellent. Today, however, we had the rudest hostess (Amy) who blatantly seated others before us and then commented publicly that I was a grumpy old man. The food is great as are most of the waitresses but Amy..............We had breakfast at... More

We've eaten here a few times and I really enjoy the atmosphere and the food selection. The coffee is good, and they keep it coming. We enjoyed our meal and our time here. Friendly staff all around.
