This place is highly recommended by the locals. It's crowded, so arrive early. The food portions are large. Hash browns with Chile salsa was yummy! The sopapilla was the best I think I've ever had. That honey butter was AWESOME! A must... when you are in Taos!

Hi, Aida! It's so exciting to read that you enjoyed yourself and that the honey butter really hit it out of the park! Looking forward to welcoming you back in next time you're in town! See you then, The Crew at Michael's Kitchen More

Our favorite place for hearty breakfast. There is always a line...always a wait. We were sorry to see them shorten their hours, but understand their motivation.

Hey, Nancy! So happy to read that you're such a fan of our breakfast! Can't wait to welcome you back in. We close things down once a year to get ready for ski season, but other than that, our hours are the same! Looking forward to having you again soon, The Crew at Michael's Kitchen More

I love the breakfast at Michaels, and I always take Taos newcomers here. Excellent service, wonderful food and generous portions. The pastries are hard to pass up. A must!

I've been eating here for over 20 years, and they never disappoint. From the friendly staff, to the incredibly good food, it is a Taos must try place. I always want to try some of the other dishes, but the huevos racheros with green chile is just amazing. My girlfriend had the stuffed sopapillas that were very tasty.. and my... More

We were told to go there and upon looking at TripAdvisor reviews we went. The food was good, but nothing special. The wait staff were super nice and friendly, but the food was very bland and so so. We have visited Taos many times and other breakfast places are better in our opinion, and this isn't worth the wait.

Tamara, this hurts to read. We're proud of our menu and our local following, so it's surprising to see that you weren't impressed by either. It sounds like you caught us on an off day, or were looking for something else. Either way, we hope you'll stop by again soon so we can show you what all the hype is... More

My wife is from Florida and I am from NM, so I have started introducing her to the real NM places where the locals go. I took her for a late lunch Saturday and not only was she blown away with the food, I was too. It had been over 16 years since I had eaten at Michael's. The staff... More

Had a great breakfast here with my family. We thoroughly enjoyed the scrumptious cinnamon rolls… As well as the pancakes, waffles and some traditional New Mexican fare. We had to wait a little longer than I would have liked for coffee and water service… But once our waiter acknowledged us, everything was great! I will definitely be visiting Michael's when... More

The only reason Michaels gets 3 stars is because of the Donuts! Just stop in for a donut and don't stay longer. Certainly one of the most popular restaurants and not for the food. The green chile has ground beef in it for gods sake! The red is mediocre and the green is flat out no good. If you want... More

We're glad you love our donuts, but it sounds like you were expecting something else when it comes to our chile.
