Taos Ski Valley Experience

Michael’s Kitchen Restaurant & Bakery

A Taos landmark since 1974, Reopening December 15!

Originally built in the 1940s, our existing building was once named Spivey's — and on February 1, 1974, that all changed. Michael Ninneman and his then-wife Carol discovered Spivey's while on a Taos vacation. They decided to uproot their family in California and buy a restaurant in New Mexico. After nearly three years of fine tuning the recipes and getting the menu where they wanted it, along with acquiring the Fiesta Bakery two blocks away, the name changed to Michael's Kitchen Coffee Shop and Bakery.

Alley Cantina the Taos Plaza

A Unique Restaurant & Bar in the Oldest Building in Taos, NM.

The building that houses our restaurant and bar is the oldest building in Taos. It was built in the 16th century by the Pueblo Indians and served as an outpost along the Chihuahua Trail. At one time the building was partially destroyed but was rebuilt and occupied by the Spanish government from the 17th to the 19th centuries.

"We are a Taos restaurant offering fun family dining, great drinks, and live music nightly. We offer a great place to enjoy your lunch or dinner, an excellent happy hour from 5pm-7pm everyday, a pool table and shuffleboard for fun competition, and nightly music entertainment in the northwest corner of the historic Taos Plaza."
