“A Taos Staple for Good Food”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

The breakfasts here cannot be beat. The food comes out almost instantly, is fresh and made with local ingredients. Get your fill here before hiking or skiing.

“The Best Place in Town for Breakfast....Don't Miss it!”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

If you are looking for a diner in Taos that has down home cooking coupled with New Mexican options then look no further! This wonderful spot is right on the main street in Taos on the Northern end of town. It frequently has lines out the door on weekends and holidays. Trust me it is worth the wait. They have enormous and delectable breakfast and baked goods. I cannot resist the breakfast offerings, even in the afternoons! They have green chili, red chili, biscuits and gravy, eggs every way possible, pancakes, homemade cinnamon rolls, donuts, fruit, and more. I honestly never order lunch because the breakfasts are just so good. Enjoy!!!!

“Maybe the wrong day and time”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

Maybe it was because it was so terribly busy, maybe the kitchen was swamped, or some other glitch, but we were not totally happy with Michaels last Sunday.
We arrived about 11 a.m., and maybe we should have had breakfast instead of lunch. The breakfasts still coming from the kitchen looked quite good, but our lunches were just o.k. The wifes beef and green chili sandwich was all bread, with a little bit of meat and green chili strips. The chili strips didn't even cover the sandwich.
I had the Philly, which was in a flour tortilla. The green chili bits were good and hot, but the beef had very little flavor, and for a philly, there wasn't any cheese. The fries we both had were just average.
Service was slow, but we didn't mind that, as the wait staff was really busy.
Maybe another day of the week would be better, and maybe staying with the breakfast menu would be the best idea if we return.
