This place does a booming business. We ate there twice in 24 hrs and it was always full but there was no wait to be seated. The food is delicious, the menu offers many choices, and the wait staff are friendly and efficient.

The portions are big, prices are fair, service is friendly and efficient, and the food's pretty good too. It seemed to be frequented mainly by locals, which is a plus. The only downside is it closes early (no... More

We never miss Michael's when we are in Taos. We both had pancakes, hers was Banana and mine blue corn. Both were excellent and almost more than a person can eat. A side order of great bacon topped it off. Service was great. The parking lot needs attention. Overall, a great meal and we won't miss it when we come... More

A good place for both breakfast and lunch. Nothing fancy just good basic food, well prepared. All the baked goods are made on site and are excellent. Do not skip the pie! Yum, Yum!

We asked for shopping advice and were given wonderful references of places to shop locally. Overall, excellent and will go there again when we are... More

We had breakfast at Michael's on a Sunday and it was busy. We were there before 9 and so were seated fairly rapidly. Wait staff is very friendly. Food was fabulous both Mexican and American style. However we did go back one evening for dinner and again it was crowded and so we sat at the counter. Again wait staff... More

Breakfast was good and plentiful. Can't speak for other meals but will update if I eat lunch here. I spend lots of time in Taos.

This is why we always have to eat at Michaels when we go to Taos: Consistency. No matter what you have or what year it is, there will be a hearty breakfast and it will be good. Gotta love that in this day and age.
