A good breakfast stop

We ate at Michaels for breakfast one morning. Arrived around 8:20 a.m. and didn't have to wait to be seated. The pancakes were very good, as was the bacon; it was real bacon and not that thinly shaved stuff you get at some restaurants. I also had a scrambled egg that was o.k., nothing special... read more

We were told that this was a favorite amongst locals and tourists. The bakery goods looked fabulous but I didn't have a chance to try this trip. The wait staff was great, coffee was good and the omelet was perfect. I can see why many said this was the place to go for a hearty breakfast. I was a party... More

We would never miss Michael's, breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They have an extensive menu, great food, fact service, and friendly wait staff. They have local fare and anything else you can expect from a full service eating place.

Highly popular spot and I now know why. Excellent soup. Great lunch options. Friendly and attentive waitresses. After dining, stop by the bakery to pick up a sweet while standing in line to pay your lunch tab.

Maybe a slightly better than average Mexican restaurant. I thought the garnish on my taco was maybe a bit fresher than average, but that was about it. We went for lunch. Perhaps it's one of those breakfast places where that's the only meal you eat all day. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there.

Service was bad, was left a a table for over 15 minutes with no menus, no water,no waiter! Hostess was rude and proceeded to gossip to other staff about how I was mad and had to ask more than twice for menus and service.

Penni, we're so sorry to hear about your experience. You must have caught us off guard because this kind of service is completely uncharacteristic of us -- usually handling large parties is no problem. Regardless, we should have been more on top of making sure you felt welcome and attended to, and we apologize if we weren't. Moreover, we're especially... More

Ate there for breakfast and went back two days later for lunch. Also ordered 3 loaves of green chili cheddar bread to bring home. Breakfast was heuvos rancheros and breakfast enchiladas. Both were outstanding. Lunch was the special for the day, Indian Taco and it filled us up. The bakery looked great, but didn't partake this trip. Ordered the bread... More

It sounds like you had a good sampling of our menu and liked everything, so we're thrilled! Good call on bringing home some bread -- the best souvenirs are the ones you can eat. Looking forward to having you back so you can try the desserts next time. Hope to see you soon, The Crew at Michael's Kitchen More
