“Recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

This place was recommended for breakfast and it was fabulous. It was obviously a popular place as it was crowded but the waitstaff were on the ball and very attentive.

“An Old Favorite, still as good as ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My wife as a child used to go to Michael's when it was more of a bakery than an institution, and I've been going there since I was introduced to Taos in the 1980s. Michael's is an institution, but not one that stands on its laurels. The sopapillas are to die for, and the New Mexican dishes are superb; the coffee may not be as good as Peet's, but it was good and there was plenty of it. I had to take my future son-in-law and daughter there and encouraged them to try different things (my daughter had been there before). A wonderful place, and a great staff. (The person handling the bill was Taos High Class of 1974.)

“Fabulous breakfast place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Our friendly Worldmark concierge recommended this restaurant for breakfast, and my 18-year-old son and I were thrilled with our choice. We both had huge, beautiful veggie omelettes with fresh vegetables (including lots of wonderful sliced avocado). Servers have personality: they are pleasant and professional, and also a bit playful, which was very nice. We only stayed in Taos three days, and we ate breakfast here two of those days. I highly recommend Michael's Kitchen.

“Quantity not quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Went for dinner for the first time, and going forward will only consider for breakfast. They do not serve beer or wine, and the quality of the mexican dishes was just average at best. For example, the rice was mushy, and the chicken was not chunks but just bits.
