Tasteless food, but plenty of it. Cold pancakes, cold syrup, and tasteless gravy. Had to tell the cashier-owner how much tip at point of sale.

We stopped here during our day in Taos. Cool place which feels like it's been there for 50 years (maybe it has). The lunch was pretty good but the real treat is their pastry counter. We got enough pastries to last us the next couple of days on our trip.

You're not far off -- our kitchen popped up in 1957! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed the lunch, and especially the pastries. Hopefully they made for great snacks throughout the rest of your trip! Take care, The Crew at Michael's Kitchen More

I say, "sweet" because we got there about 30 minutes before closing and you would have thought the staff would be ready to close and go home.... Oh contrary!!! They were absolutely great. Plus, the food was delicious. Only thing wrong, like I said, "we arrived late," so all the bakery goodies were sold. Oh well, my bad!!! Go there,... More

We had lunch at Michael's kitchen upon our arrival at Taos. They have great food and very friendly staff. Everything was good. Before we left Taos 2 days later, we stopped by and picked up a sourdough bread and jalapeno bread. They were excellent!

I had the chili rellanos and chicken enchiladas, he had a meat omelet and home fries, both are wonderful and delicious. I ordered mine with red and green chili, guacamole and sour cream on the side it was flavorful but very hot in temperature, had to wait for it to cool to eat. At the bakery on the way out... More

We stopped there one day prior to a drive and the raisin buns were out of this world. So we had to leave early and decided to grab some baked goods and coffee before driving to ABQ based on prior experience. The raisin buns are awesome and huge. The donuts the same and get the blueberry muffins!

Took a spontaneous ride on the Harley and this was the first stop once in town. When we pulled up we both thought it was just a coffee shop but quickly saw that such was not the case. Yes, they have coffee and I hoped, internet but such was not the case at least as it pertains to internet service.... More

Stopped in here on the recommendation from our hotel clerk at the El Pueblo Lodge. Didn't have high expectations.... just wanted a simple meal at a decent price. Half of us ordered breakfast items and the other half ordered mexican-type entrees. Food was good, but I kind of agree with another reviewer on here about the french toast. One would... More
