We just recently went to Cafe Michael for our 48th wedding anniversary and we must say it was a very good choice for sure! The food was very good and generous portions. The prices were very reasonable too. Good service all around!

An interesting menu with great service. While we did not know this it appears that they have a strong take out trade in Pizza and other meals. Good to know if you are local. A nice open restaurant with a wide selection on the menu. Returning a second time ranged us through some other options. Again a somewhat unappealing exterior,... More

I often rate my lunch experiences on how good a restaurant can make a beef dip. This one passes with flying colours. Good and tasty and not a bunch of "chefs choice" crap put on. Good bun and good beef. Nuff said. Lol.

Went out for Valentine's lunch to Cafe Micheal. It was sooooo busy, it was unreal. Our server kept apologizing and told us that they really weren't expecting the amount of people that kept coming for lunch. There was absolutely nothing to apologize for as the service was fantastic and so was the food (as always). So if you are ever... More

Had the unfortunate experience of going here 'again' for a birthday party. Going in with a positive attitude certainly did not help. On a humourous note, one of our party commented on the twelve or so $24 to over $30 entre's, in that all but 2 said 'Stuffed with ham and Edam'...haha I should have ordered the $10 Greek salad,...

My girlfriends and I got stormed out at a nearby provincial park, and headed to town to warm up and have lunch. Stumbled upon this gem after checking out a few other cafes that didn't impress.

This is a nice family restaurant with great food. Visited a few times but the last time was on them. They graciously donated to our local Pee Wee hockey tournament and I was lucky to win their basket! Very nice family run business!
