my husband had the veggie omelet

My husband loved the veggie omelet, it was overflowing with fresh vegetables. The service was great. We were offered refills of coffee constantly.

We had breakfast here. I had been eating here since back in the 80's and it is still as good as ever. It was packed as usual but for good reason. They have the best cinnamon rolls you will ever taste! It is worth a trip to Taos just to eat at Michael's.

Love places like this for home cooking and a locals feel. Great New Mexican food, great staff, a little bit of real Taos.

This place is a local hotspot. It is open only for breakfast or lunch. They produce great Mexican style foods, which on my trip to New Mexico was not topped by by anyother place. Make sure to order the sampler platter to get a variety of different tastes.

These pancakes are incredible. The ones I had nuts in them and they were amazing. If you ever go here get the pancakes. They are so so good

Very fast service and great food! Plenty of parking beside the restaurant, easy access. The green chili on the burritos was really good!

We stayed at a B & B so our breakfast was included but every time we'd go by Michaels Kitchen it was crowded so we decided to forego the B & B breakfast and try Michaels Kitchen. We were so glad we did. I had the best veggie omelet I've ever had. Instead of the veggies being inside the omelet... More

Boy, you want a large breakfast come here. Had the veggie omelet and wow it was great. Had bacon on the side and you get 4 thick strips done just right.

I always make a point to stop at Michaels when in Taos, as the breakfasts are fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. They offer fresh baked goods as well and I've yet to find any I don't thoroughly enjoy. The staff is friendly, the location is easy to find and close to gallerys and the plaza. If you're skiing at Taos... More

We ate here for breakfast while on vacation on Taos. The inside of the restaurant is simple but comfortable. There is a case in the entry/exit area which displays wonderful looking pastries such as cinnamon rolls, doughnuts, croissants and cream puffs. Our group had the following: cinnamon roll, banana strawberry pecan pancakes and the bacon waffle. The cinnamon roll was... More
