Enjoyed a lovely breakfast here on a Friday morning. Bacon was cooked perfectly. As were the eggs. My only complaint is it us very loud.

I grab breakfast here three or four times a month and over the years have had many lunches, dinners and celebratory events here. The staff are friendly and cheerful, and the food and ambiance have been consistently great in all that time. Always a pleasure!

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our experience at Windmills over the Family Day long weekend. The restaurant was super busy but they were able to accomodate really well. The food itself was good (not superb). I had the Ranchos Huevos which was a large portion, but in terms of taste I didn't find it the best i've had by any... More

Great menu variety and mix of breakfast, brunch and lunch items. Coffee hot and fresh, friendly service. Eggs cooked perfectly to order. Outstanding goat cheese pizza, great potatoes, pierogis and more. A sure return visit is in order

Went with visiting Family members, staff was great and managed to squeeze us in without a reservation. Food was great, and served promptly. Good selection of wines to accompany the meal.

Haven't been for dinner but love the breakfasts, every sandwich on the lunch menu and all the salad and soup offerings I've had a chance to try. Best fried breakfast potatoes in town. Creative, fresh, tasty sides. Quiet enough for great conversation, Warm ambience. Friendly, experienced servers. Right in the heart of downtown. Give it a try!

This was my third visit to Windmills and my second brunch. The food continues to be exceptional. The eggs benedict are second to none. The staff and service are top notch. Overall, one of my favourite places to dine.

Traditional menu, as expected. Sausages were over-cooked, but really, that was the only negative. Quite acceptable otherwise.

We were having a small business meeting on a Wednesday morning during the breakfast hours. When we arrived, we were the only ones there. Our server was very attentive. The food however, did not meet the standards that I had experienced in the past. I had eggs benedict, which was quite tasty but somewhat lacking in the sauce category. The... More

I'm glad you were able to join us for a breakfast this past week. While it sounds like our service really hit the mark, I'm sorry if your Eggs Benedict didn't quite meet the high standards you've come to expect from us. Our guests should always receive delicious, beautifully-presented meals, so I can't wait to welcome you back for a... More
