We were looking forward to a meal but were disappointed. We ordered the lamb which was one of their specials. They did give huge portions but we could barely eat it because it looked so unappetizing. We took the lamb with us not to hurt their feelings but threw it out later. I think it's a good place for a... More

Michael's is in the heart of town and we often go there for breakfast when we are in Windham. It is nothing fancy, but the service is good and so is the food.

Very ice little small town diner with delicious food and plentiful portions. We ate about half our service, it was huge. We had chicken carbonara and a turkey dinner with all the fixings. Potatoes were pasty, veges were local grown and fresh. Definitely worth the money, open long hours and serve all three meals. One of the best buys for... More

I love the omelets and the potatoes for breakfast at this diner in downtown Windham. Responsive service. They only take cash, so make sure you hit the ATM before stopping in for breakfast or lunch.

Our first time here and it won't be the last! Friendly and quick service and really good food await you here. Clean and lots of parking in the lot or on the street. Wonderful coffee and excellent price on Main street in Windham.

What a gem! My only regret is we don't live closer. The food was delicious and the servings HUGE. The prices were very reasonable and the staff very accommodating. Everything was delicious and homemade. You feel like you are a part of their family and each staff member stops by to see if you need anything. To our surprise, the... More

You definitely want to be woken up in the morning by Tracey, the happy waitress at Michael's. She was genuinely cheerful and had a great attitude. Oh, and the breakfast was pretty good and reasonably priced. I believe we were charged only a dollar for coffee (with refills). We were told that the lunch and dinner items are all freshly... More

I had my 1st egg creme here - yuck! Im sure its great as far as egg cream's go but I have decided I don't like egg creams. Everything else was fantastic. The bacon and eggs were perfect to how I ordered them and the home fries were almost like my parents restaurant growing up - so tasty. My husband... More
