This is always a must stop when we visit Taos. The huge cinnamon rolls are delicious, and the different breakfast plates are wonderful. Definitely a busy place so get there early.

A great sitdown resturant for those wanting american and mexican fare at a 10-15 dollar price. Food was quite good and served rather quickly.

Michaels Kitchen is the absolute best New Mexican food ever. There were other places where we had good green chili both on burgers and breakfast burrito. But in my opinion, none of the others compared to the flavor and texture of Michaels. We had eaten there a few years ago and found the food to be equally as amazing on... More

This is where the locals go for breakfast so you probably will have a wait for a table - but it's worth the wait. Good home style breakfast menu and on site bakery. Amble servings, you won't go away hungry. Great service for such a busy place. Reasonably priced. Rustic atmosphere and smiling employees and customers make this a fun... More

Very nice people. Good service. Food is pedestrian and we couldn't figure out other than the atmosphere why this place was recommended by virtually everyone we asked. After we went there for breakfast, when we asked a local in a store about places they would recommend they always mentioned this place. When we said we weren't impressed, they would say... More

It's hard to go to Taos and not eat at Michaels. We had breakfast, which is our favorite. All the food is good, every time. Mostly SW but they have it all. Service is super good. Busy busy place. They also have a nice bakery. Food prices are very reasonable and the portions are above average.

I have never had a bad meal at Michael's, it is always good, sometimes the line is long to get in...but that is because it is so good. Just prepare that you may have to wait for a table. Only good things to day about this place.

We love Michael's Kitchen! The staff, the food, everything! The bakery is phenomenal.. between the breads (especially the green chile cheese bread) to the apple fritters, you cannot go wrong! The atole-piñon pancakes are one of my favorites. The huevo rancheros cannot be beat!
