Strangely enough we saw a few other people dancing with coats on, but they were talking to security people, so they must have gotten the friend pass. This is the best and biggest dance floor anywhere in Philly. Plenty of space to people watch too. I'm pretty sure their shots come from a pre made bottle but it's all good. Fun place I've been 5-6 times total and always have a good time.
Everyone seems to just hang out near the dance floor, and even that area is seldom truly packed. It is certainly not the type of place you go on a first date, it's more of a girls night, or tired of the regular club scene kind of place. It 's so tacky and bad that it's good. I had a salad and a sandwich. The dance floor is comprised of mostly women and it's obvious why, this is a place that feels comfortable and inclusive. This place is never busy.
This was also not what I expected, but actually in a good way. Michael's is just one of those places you have to go to. I could actually come here every Saturday for the rest of my days and be quite content. So I end up getting the two eggs with hash browns, toast, coffee and scrapple. Another thing I noticed was the music.
I usually use the first bar on the right hand side when you walk in, since few people are ever there and you get served right away. Were do we start, surrounded by new gleaming construction Micheals sports busted up parking lot, a dirty dated interior and exterior facility and a cira 1998 bar setups. Now this review is on may 16 2017. Sorry to see it go. If you come for dinner during the week, it's basically all senior citizens, not much of a crowd. The only thing missing from this place as a way to make money was a card swiper on the bathroom door to charge for its use. I usually avoid women that smoke.
I ventured out and had it over a waffle. Manager never came over at all. I won't make the effort again. I initially heard that it was closed down from a family member, but to my delight it actually is still open! I would put the median age at around 67. Reports of this place being closed are wrong.
The shrimp in the shrimp salad sandwich were a good size and tasty. The rest if just a freak show Hi Christine! That's after I got waited on. Tons of cougars who always hit on my male friends, very few silver foxes though sorry to report for those who like older men. I can't say they serve the best food in town, but It is pretty fine. We arrived around 9 but it was super dead for a diner.
I hope that they do. Stopped by here after a long day at work for a quick Dinner-Breakfast. Great diner with a nice family atmosphere. The misplaced fear that a smoking ban will kill business has already been proven wrong. The dance floor is comprised of mostly women and it's obvious why, this is a place that feels comfortable and inclusive. There was a time over the past year or so, that the music was not so good; too much foul mouth lyrics and gangsta beats.
I went with the breakfast combo. She was in her 40s I'd say so she has had her time to learn some manners. If there is a hell on earth, this place is it. Every once and a while they throw in a new song or two. Holy Cow, where do I begin? Wound up ordering off the breakfast specials menu. Was very clean and staff was attentive. And don't forget to tip, believe me, you'll be reminded.
Waited 5 min for coffee and Waited another 10 minutes for my food to arrive, just never expected this. Michael's Cafe just closed down. I've only been there on a Saturday, and no matter how many months hiatus I take, the same core of individuals are there upon my return. Salad bar less than impressive. I didn't have food, so I can't speak to that. The decor was incredibly outdated, and the Santa scene that was on the stage was straight out of my grandma's living room. Overall I would return here for breakfast anytime of the day.
