“best egg salad sandwich in the desert”
Review of Michael's Cafe

michaels is a fun place to have breakfast or lunch - they are closed for dinner and all summer through mid- september- the service is prompt and cheerful and the food is a cut above standard coffee shop fare . there is an inside counter with fun movie star memorabilia as well as an outside patio at the front where pets are welcome.
it is a neighborhood place and the hostess at the front is friendly and reinforces this vibe.
i go there for their egg salad sandwich but their french toast , pancakes , egg dishes are all good. to summarize,a fun breakfast or lunch with good food, a neighborhood vibe, with quirky movie stuff all around. most folks there are regulars.

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. They are not open for dinner. Their food is great and it's inexpensive to eat there.

This neighborhood gem provides consistently great food and great service. It may not be gourmet, but sometimes I want some good comfort food, and Michael's is good at making this happen. The Marilyn Monroe pics on the walls gives the atmosphere a quirky but friendly and fun attitude.

This place is loaded with Marilyn Monroe memorabilia, and photo's, also Elvis is a strong presence here.
This restaurant specializes in breakfast and lunch only and closes at 2pm. They have daily specials and lots of sandwiches, and salads on the menu. Reasonably priced two people can get out of there for $30 with tip included no problem at lunchtime. Our server was Judy Tutu (She had 2 name tags) and she reminded us of Flo from Alice's restaurant. New since the last time we visited about a year ago is a giant horseshoe shaped counter seating section in the center for those who arrive on their own. It was empty at lunchtime but probably hops at breakfast time. Outdoor seating is available and the way the building is situated at lunchtime it is all under the canopy and in the shade.
Overall a nice place to eat as this was our 4th visit there.
Enjoy the Mandarin chicken half salad $12 and the half Cobb salad $12. Both half salads are very large and ample. Full size salads are only about $2.50 more.
