We ate here two mornings and both were very good with huge serving sizes. Huevos Rancheros not great but ok then their omelets were absolutely great with an amazing salsa. Nice bakery selection as well.

This was probably our least favorite meal in Taos. The food was good, but so many other places we ate at were great. The service was so-so. The food came out quickly but we had to wait a long time for refills and check. The tables were tight and awkward. Our favorite park was that it was close to the... More

We had this cafe recommended to us for a great breakfast, but it was disappointing. I didn't enjoy my meal and the place was heaving with people. By comparison the Bearclaw cafe nearby is just great, and we much preferred to eat there.

Sharon, this is disappointing to read. We always want everyone to have a wonderful experience here, so we're sorry if that wasn't the case for you. You're right that we can get pretty busy, so we hope you'll give us another shot when it's less crowded. Take care, The Crew at Michael's Kitchen More

This is by far the best breakfast in Taos! Nice people, amazing bakery that offers MANY choices of pastries to take home with you. But the breakfast is simply the BEST!

Our breakfast here was superb. We shared the green chile omelet with diced green chiles, meatless. Wonderful flavor and not too spicy. Long line for a table so sat at the counter and chatted up a local or two. Tried the pinion flavored coffee, but went back to the regular. Service was friendly. Lots of bakery selections, but the omelet,... More

This was my first time to visit Taos. My girlfriend has been to New Mexico several times before. An acquaintance recommended Michaels and we were glad we took her up on her suggestion. There was a long line which is always a good sign. We were happy to wait and sat at the bar. The breakfast was awesome and the... More

Waste of calories & money. Breakfast was nasty, coffee burnt, sausage had plastic like casing. The bakery items are gigantic and cabinet did not look clean. Service was slow & grumpy.

Michael's is the place to go for fresh-baked treats and hearty southwestern breakfast. The breakfast burrito is delicious and big enough to be shared, and the green chili it's smothered in is fantastic.
