Stuffed sopapillas are the best!!

awesome breakfast venue with tons of character. They also have a bakery kicking out pastries to die for. Service is prompt and friendly. They have a large selection for breakfast and its all good. Its especially good if you have a large group.

Large portions of delicious food. We had breakfast and both had to get to go boxes. The green chile sauce is tremendous. The bakery looked great, but we were full. Great place.

I last visited the famous Michaels Kitchen three years ago, before last night. I ordered the same thing both times. The banana nut pancakes are legendary. These pancakes melt in your mouth with deliciousness packed as pecans, fresh bananas, and a delicious banana syrup. All around the table we enjoyed breakfast food for dinner once again realizing why Michaels Kitchen... More

Really - if you can't find something on this menu to eat - you're crazy! The menu is incredibly varied! "But how's the food?" Amazing! Absolutely homemade, tasty, and portion size is a perfect value. The prices are reasonable! The service is kind, respectful, fast, friendly and right on point. We went to other restaurants in the area. Our mistake... More

Been visiting Taos for years & hearing people rave about the bakery part of Michael's. So, today I finally tried Michaels the 1st time today. Good food, particularly their breakfast offerings were terrific. However, their bakery was only mediocre at/best. I really had high expectations, given the hype. Result???

We had a party of 7 and didn't have to wait long to be seated. Food and service were excellent. Also enjoyed a pastry after breakfast. Ate here twice on our 3-day trip!

We had heard that his place was "legendary", but it didn't quite live up to that label. The food was good, not great and we could have been at just about any Mexican restaurant anywhere. They're open for lunch throughout the week but make sure and check their hours before heading there for supper. I hate to sound negative, but... More

Breakfast was solid. Big menu with lots of options, and the kitchen was willing to make a couple substitutions. It was worth going back.

We had to wait in line both mornings that we visited this restaurant. (That's a good sign) The service is spot on and the food was delicious. It is a cultural icon that has been there for years with no change in quality.
