This diner had some mixed reviews, but mixed enough that we wanted to try it for ourselves. Two big thumbs up!! CLASSIC club sandwich---always the determining factor for me for a place that calls themselves a diner or old fashioned coffee shop. Very fast service, mostly locals there, comfortable and clean. Big menu, lots of Greek items, big liquor list.... More

We visited this diner for breakfast recently after seeing it on trip-advisor. We figured if someone was eating there for 8 years something must be right.,everyone seemed friendly, .( we are also in the hospitality business). The food was magnificent. We returned the next day with our kids, the staff were very attentive, and the food even better. Fast, hot... More

The food - it is a diner, but they don't serve it with a smile or your way. If you need to eat breakfast, it will do.

In a sea of diners, consistency is always welcomed. Sometimes It not special dishes that keeps you coming back, its just knowing what you order will be the same as the last time. Well done bacon, omelets, a tuna fish sandwich, a cheeseburger deluxe. These simple menu items always work at the Windmill Diner. They do have some outstanding Greek... More

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. I... More

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
