I love going to this place for the breakfast. I usually have the meat lovers or the huge garbage omelette. Coffee and refill included with breakfast. Service is great and staff are friendly. The place is not impressive as it just looks like an old shack but it's packed with great locals and good food. Don't sleep on this diner,... More

Food is great!, Lot of the local residents stop in for coffee or breakfast/lunch. The owners are very knowledgeable of the area. The best thing about this restaurant is the owners and staff, they always seem to remember your order from last time you were there. Great coffee!

We stopped in for breakfast recently and we're quite pleased with both the food and atmosphere. We had omlette and look forward to a return visit.

Place doesn't look like much. Old time diner basically in the middle of nowhere with good quality breakfast for a low price. Fast friendly service.

And don't judge a restaurant by its exterior. I was pleasantly surprised how clean this establishment is as well as the taste of the breakfasts my wife and I enjoyed. The meals are very affordable for the quantity of food you receive. Chantelle and Jean are very attentive waitresses. They serve breakfast and lunch and close at 2:00 p.m. The... More

A unique little diner that's really easy to miss if you're not looking for it. Standard diner food, and it was very good. It felt like time stopped here sometime in the 1950's - I mean that in a good way - it was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly.

The place was packed on Sunday. Very old fashion diner, regular breakfast food, excellent price. They have personalized mugs for their regular customers, but all are welcome.

Open the door and step back in time to the 50's. We have driven past Mike's for 12 years and this Sunday we decided to dew drop in. It was an amazing experience, and every part of our experience was top notch. Other reviews mention prices, and after you get past the sign on the door about prices going up... More

The owner of the motel we were staying at suggested that we go there for breakfast. Nothing fancy, but good food at a good price. I got an omelet with toast and hash browns and my husband got an egg sandwich. There were served quickly and tasted very good. Mike's is definitely the place that locals eat. There were mugs...

the owner and his daughter were extremely friendly. We enjoyed speaking to them. We totally enjoyed our breakfast and the conversation. The building doesn't look like much from the outside but you will not be disappointed with the food or hospitality.
