Went for breakfast this morning, 7/15, lots of tables available. No sooner did we sit when the waitress asked if we were ready to order. Calm down lady get me some coffee first.

Food wasn't anything special and eggs not cooked as ordered. And of course no sooner than it looked like we were finished when she tried to rush us out. Geeez lady let me at least burp once or twice. There were empty tables and no line of people waiting to get in.

We took our time, left a generous tip (I'm just that way) and went on with doing Taos.

We've been to Michael's before when in Taos and they don't disappoint. The baked goods are heavenly and very reasonably priced. We've had good breakfast and lunch here.

My wife & I have eaten there several times for breakfast and lunch and will eat there again. This restaurant has been there for decades and has the reputation of being a favorite for "locals". We have had mixed success with lunches there but never experienced anything but satisfaction when ordering from the breakfast menu. There is a wonderful bakery in the middle of the restaurant from which you can order goodies while dining there or take them with you for snacking later.. Be sure and watch for the Cinnamon Rolls big enough to feed a squad of Marines. Off street parking next door.. Very reasonable prices. Can get really busy creating a wait for a table. Located just a few blocks north of the Plaza on the main North/South drag (west side of street).

Very good breakfast served here with fresh baked goods as well. Staff is very attentive, right there to fill your empty cup or glass. Food comes fast and is very tasty. Love the green chile but that is New Mexico and they do it good here. The vegetarian is the best. Nice amount of heat.

Was told this was "THE" place to eat in Taos. Seriously??? Long line. Sticky table tops. Dishes were old and silverware was questionably clean. Maybe ordered the wrong thing?? Had a BLT on dry bread. Asked for extra crispy fries and got extra crispy bacon instead. One of us had Chips and salsa - chips were stale. All and all, one of the worst lunches I have had. Price was okay and service was good considering the crowd. I would not return.
