Great bakery

We went in to get patries (donuts in our case) and I must say they were delicious. Everyone got a different style and we all gobbled them down quickly. YUMM.

I've been going to Michael's over the decades as a reliable breakfast stop when in Taos. It is a busy place ... not surprising for there to be a line waiting for a table. Other than the baked goods I don't think of the food or coffee to be particularly outstanding. Service has always been friendly. Not my favorite breakfast... More

We learned of this place at the Taos Visitor's Center. A place were the locals go. Good food at excellent prices. Loved the atmosphere. Would definitely return.

My son needed a more substantial breakfast than a cinnamon roll, so we got the kids breakfast as well. He gave the cinnamon roll a thumbs down, but loved the eggs and bacon and I thought the pancakes were perfect. The egg looked a little dry and brown to me, like it was scrambled on a griddle... But he liked... More

Every time I go here, I order every Bear Claw that they have. There is no other place comparable to Michaels! It is worth the drive just for a mouth-watering Bear Claw!!!

17 Red Hat Ladies/Taos Chili Chicks enjoyed an excellent lunch at Michael's Kitchen Gina and her staff where perfect. The selections - outstanding. Bakery items are a must take home for later. Fast - hot food - fantastic customer service. Breakfast lunch or dinner you can't go wrong. Very family friendly.

We've been going to Taos for many years. We never go without having a meal at Michael's Kitchen. Great New Mexico food. We ate there twice this year. We had dinner on Sunday night and breakfast on Wednesday. The service is always good.

I can't say enough good things about this place! Service was very quick for our party of 8. The waitress was super attentive - multiple waitresses came by with coffee refills. The restaurant was packed but not for a second did we feel it. The food - from sweet rolls and pancakes to white egg omelets and fried eggs with... More
