“Yum for Breakfast or Lunch”
Reviewed September 22, 2010

Michael's is very reasonably priced with great food and very warm and friendly wait staff. Soups are yum, breakfast is yum - just very good value for the $$'s in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere.
I should go more often than I do! :-)

“Fantastic Canadian breakfast”
Reviewed January 17, 2010

We liked it so much the first day, we went back for breakfast the second! Super friendly staff, maybe the best waffles I've ever had.
Nice to know there are still real, thriving downtowns in British Columbia with great, local restaurants like this.

“The Main Reason to Eat Off Main”
Reviewed December 29, 2008

This small restaurant in Courtenay is a favourite with locals - it's location on 4th Street (one block over from the shops that line Courtenay's 5th Street) makes it easy to miss. Michaels is definitely one of the best places in town to get a fantastic all day breakfast after or before a day skiing or boarding on Mount Washington. The ambiance is funky with with lots of old fashioned pictures and mirrors on the walls. The service is excellent and the food is tasty and affordable. Be prepared to wait for a table during peak hours as there usually is a small line-up.
