Folks on Pantops Mountain have been enjoying delicious breakfasts and diner food for years at the Tip Top Restaurant. Now, patrons on the north side of Charlottesville have a go-to place for breakfast at Michael’s Diner & Restaurant. CvilleBuzz contributor, Sherman Shifflett, visited recently and says he will definitely go back again.
Says Sherman: “I accompanied Greg Barlow to Charlottesville this morning for a doctor’s appointment. We had breakfast at Michael’s on Route 29 North. Both of us ordered country ham, potatoes, eggs, and toast (he got biscuits.) The coffee was good and the breakfast was very good. The waitresses kept our coffee cups filled.”
Michael’s serves breakfast all day and offers a typical diner menu. Sherman said he understands that one of the owners of Tip Top had opened the restaurant, so it would have to be good.
Sam Driver wrote this review: “Michael’s is a perfect mix of home-style cooking and a friendly atmosphere. The food and service are both top notch. I love it!”
Ava Pippin, Sherman’s significant other, has been on his case recently because he hasn’t taken her there yet, even though they live in Louisa.
Michael’s is located in front of Target, on the southbound side of Rt. 29. It’s in the strip mall just south of Airport Road. The address is 3450 Seminole Trail. Call them at 434-328-8939.
But as Sherman says, “If you haven’t eaten there, try it.”
