Old Fashioned Breakfast

Great Service - fast and effecient and friendly. Portions were generous. The omlet was delicious. The sausage and eggs were very good and cooked the way I ordered them. Lover the potatoes.

Comfortable atmosphere for families even with small children. Menu has something for everyone, from delicious New Mexican selections to pancakes and crepes if you get there before 11:30. Portions are generous so come hungry and save room for desert from their bakery.

Great food, not just baked goods. Plenty of locals, Michael's is a Taos establishment. Grab a cinnamon roll with your morning coffee, they're huge!

We both decided to get "Derek's Lunch". It's their version of a phily cheese steak with chili's on a flower tortilla. It's a really unique and south western interpretation and really tasty too.The service was very quick and very friendly. A must place to eat in Taos.

It was my first visit and I can honestly say, there will be many, many visits in the future. What a great place to pop in, get an incredible meal quickly and then get on your way. The service is quick and the food is fabulous, with a large menu of delicious choices, including a full bakery! You don't want... More

The woman in the seat next to me on the plane to New Mexico raved about Michael's. She told me the cinnamon rolls were as big as your head. We had to see this. We went for lunch once and for a late dinner on another day. We were very pleased both times. The food was good and plentiful. The... More

A generous breakfast not for the faint of heart-this was our second visit to this cafe and our entrees each time were delicious and large. You could easily share with 1-2 people. We arrived early on a Saturday and the place was already hopping. Note: they do not seat you until all of your party are present. Our food arrived... More

Seems like the locals eat here. Good quality, and one of very few places in town that serves breakfast all day.

You don't want to miss out on Michael's Kitchen Cafe and Bakery if you are in Taos, NM. Don't get turned off if you have to wait a bit...they move you in quickly even though they don't take names to seat you. The food is incredible, amazing service and plenty to observe in the historical decor. The restaurant also features... More
