I agree with the yummy review. It is a modest place, no credit cards, a few miles from the interstate, but the breakfast was traditional and good

My husband, my daughter, and myself went to try out the Windmill Café this evening. The posted hours for dinner are 5-8p.m. We arrived at 6:58 as a woman was walking out the door.
