Just back home now from our Saturday morning breakfast at Michael's Off Main...and it was DELICIOUS! We heard how amazing their all-day breakfast was, and although it may be a buck or two more than some restaurants, your plate is filled with great food. The eggs were deep yellow, with crispy bacon and home fries...and 3 choices of toast too!... More

Fairly basic breakfast food but well priced and cozy cafe. Love the antique art and chalk painted older furniture. I will visit again

Michael's off Main is a staple for every person I think who lives in the valley. We had a great family breakfast there recently and come with a hearty appetite. Everything about this place is awesome!!!

had the bison eggs benedict with mushrooms, very good variation on the traditional eggs benedict. Ecclectic décor, so lots to look at. Tasty, hot coffee served as well with good service.

Huge portions. The potatoes and hollandaise sauce used to be more flavourful (last time we went before this trip was 4 years ago mind you...) a staple and must visit whenever we stop in town

This was listed as an all day breakfast place.Imagine my disappointment to find that they offer Zero gluten free options. It is so challenging to have allergies at best but most places off at least GF toast. There I was eating nothing but potatoes while my partner enjoyed a beautiful breakfast all the while " You Can't Always Get What... More

Nice place and huge breakfast portions for the price you pay. I had the full benny combo, and even tho I wasn't asked hiw I want my eggs cooked, it was very good. Very busy place so it makes for a loud environment, but it is still worth it. I will be returning, that is for sure!

We came for breakfast on a Sunday, had a 15 minute wait, which seems forever when you are hungry. We had out of towners with us, so hoped that it was GREAT! and it really was. The food is well presented, plentiful, and delicious. The staff pay attention to detail and still have their sense of humor.
