Been here many times for breakfast. Inside restaurant is a fifties diner style, outside is a small patio that you can bring your pets to. There are many choices and are large enough to satisfy most everyone. Coffee is hot and plenty.

Your memory of a diner like experience with friendly staff and easy going customers comes to life here. Fast decent service. Good food not outstanding. Always fresh and priced well. A great place for breakfast or lunch.

Been there twice for breakfast. The choices are great. The food and service is very good. The waiter just keeps coming back to refill your coffee. They have an outdoor patient and you can bring your dog and they have water bowls.

If you get a hankering for food the way you had at home, come to Michael's for Breakfast or Lunch. The portions are large, the food is like mom made, (including the pies and deserts), and the staff is fabulous! Surrounded by Marilyn and Elvis,...More

This place has been in business a long time. Ask anyone local about where to get a great breakfast and Michaels Cafe will always be on their list. Their pastrami sandwich is a huge pile of beautifully spiced pastrami on rye. Tears of joy not...More
