Michael's Kitchen, Taos

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Foxboro Marmot on June 17, 2004

On a ski trip to Taos a few years ago, we had trouble finding a good place for breakfast. Then we discovered Michael's Kitchen, three blocks north of the plaza on Paseo del Pueblo Nor (Route 64). We became regulars. Sit at the counter if possible

Try the Moofy, a croissant sandwich with egg, ham and cheese, or shock your server by ordering your eggs benedict without chili. Our waiter couldn’t hold back. "NO chile?" he asked and seemed genuinely horrified at this sacrilege. Have the granola pancakes – regular pancakes sprinkled with apple cinnamon granola and powdered sugar -- or the anole (blue corn) and pinon nut pancakes. Besides tasting great, theses pancakes have a nice blend of textures offsetting the usual soft pancakes with the crunch of granola or pinon nuts. It’s a great way to fill up for a day of skiing, hiking or just plain wandering around.

On the way out, take a look at the bakery display case featuring HUGE cinnamon rolls Michael’s calls "Orville Rolls."

Hmmm … next trip I’ve got to find out why they’re called "Orville Rolls." And where does that "Moofy" name come from?

Although we think Michael’s serves the best breakfast in Taos, stay away in the evening. On our last trip we were so pleased with our breakfasts, we decided to come by for dinner. It was a BIG mistake as we suffered two of the worst dinners we’ve had in a long time.
