If you want fast service and quality diner food, this is the place to go in danbury. They know how to handle crowds of customers, so if the establishment appears busy, go in and you will experience amazing service. I had eggs and sausage and it was all good.

Friendly waitstaff. Made to order breakfast. Food was decent. Nothing to write home about. Solid. Very quick service. Enjoyed it, but will look for something more inspiring next time. Check the menu - diner food. If you want something more, look elsewhere. No objection, just not worth a lot of effort to find. :-)

We went here to grab a quick bite. We were seated in the back at the end of the diner counter and kitchen doors. The young college waiter was nice at first..taking our orders and getting our drinks quickly. As we waited for our meal, the young college age wait staff were all chatting and texting in a circle.

We were staying close by and we love diners so decided to give it a try for breakfast. Good menu and service was very good. Food was good but coffee was only so so. We liked it enough that we went back the next day. Pancakes, eggs and waffles were all very good!

The Windmill Diner is a Danbury classic. I could not tell you the number of times I have eaten here and have never had a bad meal. The service is always good and fast and the place is always clean. They have great specials and the prices are affordable. I have specifically read disparaging comments about individuals who work here... More

This is an old-time diner and it is excellent. We had breakfast and although there were loads of people, we all got seated without delay. We had a party of six and got a comfortable booth and fast, efficient service. Omelets, French Toast, Bagels/cream cheese, Special Combos, Egg Sandwich, and the old stand-by, Eggs over easy, home fries and toast!... More

Prices are reasonable, but food is average. In need of a major remodeling. Service is attentive, but staff is a little too talkative with each other.

Lovely staff but the food is awful. Its bland, badly cooked and just plain gross diner food. And I love diners!! Everything was greasy and bad quality ingredients. I cook better at home.

The Windmill has convenient hours and is usually open late into the evening. It serves alcoholic beverages in addition to the usual fountain drinks and milkshakes. Breakfast is available throughout the day and evening. The daily specials are typical of diner food, e.g. meatloaf with mashed potatoes and gravy, spanakopita, fried shrimp, etc. Portion sizes are generous, yet not overwhelming.... More
