Michael's Kitchen was closed so we cruised around looking for a breakfast spot in Taos. Ended up at El Taoseno and were not impressed. I ordered an egg over medium and it came hard as a rock. No sourdough toast. Hash brown potatoes were cold...More

El Taoseno was near our hotel, had good reviews on TA and opens at 6am. We live in the Eastern time zone and are awake and ready for breakfast earlier than most in Taos. The breakfast burrito had bacon, 2 scrambled eggs and hash browns...More
