These folks have some of the best food I have ever had. A quaint little cafe with indoor and outdoor seating the food is like some of the best restaurants you find in New York or Chicago. The steak and chicken Marcella to die for as is the chicken parm. Seafood pastry just heavenly. Be sure to bring your own wine it's byb. Also don't forget the desserts after truly a piece of heaven.

How often do you read something that just gets your interest? We read the reviews about Michaelee's Chocolate Caffe and decided this was just different enough to give it a try. The lunch was suburb. My wife had the crab cake Panini and thought it was wonderful. I tried the roast beef chocolate wrap. Really good as well. This is a small restaurant at the end of a shopping strip, unpretentious, but well appointed. The service was excellent and the food was worth the price. We also ordered diet cokes and would have been better off just ordering one since they give you a 20 oz. bottle. The lunch price was maybe $5 more in total than your average joint but well worth it and well worth a visit the next time in the area. They also serve dinner but we didn't have dinner there,.

We ate here for lunch and each person ordered a different item. No complaints from anyone! The crab cakes panini was wonderful, the mediterranean panini got rave reviews, the Imperial (blackened chicken) panini was awesome and the chocolate panini was different is a delicious way!! Only one in our party got dessert (and I forgot what she ordered) but it was all chocolate and she LOVED it!!

My wife had the chicken chocolate wrap and I had the shrimp chocolate wrap. We both had the potato salad. It was a take out order. Everything was marvelous as usual. We love Michaelee's. Mike is a genius chef. One of our all time favorites.
