They have excellent breakfasts. My only complaint is that the acoustics are terrible - noise level is so high - hard to talk! Food is always fresh. Waitresses quite efficient

Decided to try this place. Hadn't been here before. Good food. Great use of locally grown food suppliers. The place was busy but the staff were excellent.

This was our second visit to this little restaurant in two years. An obvious favourite of locals. Always full of patrons and people waiting at the door. Great food, very large portions. All made from scratch.

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.
