During a recent 3 night stay in Taos, we were looking forward to eating at Michael's Kitchen Cafe & Bakery, but ended up being very disappointed. Not only did this end up being our most expensive meal during a 5 week driving tour of the...More

Michael, this is extremely disappointing to read. We've been in business making the same recipes for nearly 40 years, and they seem to be very well received, so you can imagine how this would be surprising. It sounds like you came in on an off...More

Had the tuna salad sandwich with fries and it was amazing. The fries were to die for and the service was simply amazing. Definitely glad I found this gem and I highly recommend if you're in the mid for a sandwich.

We ate here two mornings and both were very good with huge serving sizes. Huevos Rancheros not great but ok then their omelets were absolutely great with an amazing salsa. Nice bakery selection as well.

We had this cafe recommended to us for a great breakfast, but it was disappointing. I didn't enjoy my meal and the place was heaving with people. By comparison the Bearclaw cafe nearby is just great, and we much preferred to eat there.More

I have a question about the chiles that are served. Everyone is raving about them. Do these sauces have meat in them?
