If you passing through Allison and need a good breakfast drop by. It's not fancy , but full of friendly local people and lots of history with the pictures on the walls.

We went to Mike's for breakfast Aug 5 2016. We just had the 2 egg meal which included 3 bug pieces of bacon and excellent potatoes. The restaurant is a bit off of the beaten path, (not on the main street). Anyway the highlight was talking to the owner Mike who explained his past cancer charity drives. All in all... More

We went for breakfast and we received large portions for a reasonable price. A bottomless cup of coffee and a smiling waitress. The best part of this restaurant is that Mike, the owner donates a portion of every cheque to cancer research. He has donated thousands of dollars so far, which you can read all about on the placemats. Not... More

I had the opportunity to have breakfast at Mike's, the food was ok, reasonably priced. Sat in the back where the big screen TV is. Watched the Treadeau's inaugeration of his staff there. Price was ok, not too pricey. Would go there again for breakfast.

Off the main drag in Alliston but be sure to visit. The food is excellent and served with a smile, Family run business.

I take the kids for the 1.99$ breakfast and they love it. Mike is great. Comes out to talk to the patrons. It's like a Cheers in Alliston. Blueberry pancakes are awesome and so are sausages. Just remember they're closed Monday

My mom, grandmother and myself stopped here on our way through town. The food was really good and the atmosphere was nice. The waitress was very helpful and went out of her way to make sure we had a good time.

Description
My wife and I were on a brief getaway at the nearby Bona Vista B & B and Spa for our (2011) Anniversary and were looking for a restaurant for our evening meal. We did an internet search and settled on Mike's Family Restaurant on Wellington Street in Alliston... which turned out to be an excellent choice.The restaurant is a sort of sports bar with wall coverings of posters, pictures and various memorabilia of years of Mike's community support. Some great pictures of Marilyn Monroe are on the wall and I'd forgotten just how attractive she was. It turns out that Mike is also the chef... he was in the kitchen doing the cooking! The staff are all very friendly and like "family"... they seemed to know all their regular customers who were there.Supper was excellent and the steak and mushrooms I ordered was superb. My wife ordered liver and onions which she reports was melt-in-your-mouth excellent and far surpassed our usual place for this dish in Toronto!It was getting near closing time and Mike was out of the kitchen making the rounds and briefly chatting with his remaining customers who were universally lauding the expertly prepared meal they just had finished.His business card accurately boasts "Great Food, Great Service, Great Price" and Mike's is open Tuesday to Sunday from 8am to 8pm.We really enjoyed our first time, and we'll be visiting Mike's again next time we're in Alliston.Graham & Beverly /NewtonToronto, OntarioNovember 2011
