Once you have had breakfast here you understand when you see people lined up out on the sidewalk waiting for a booth or table. Not a very big place, but they serve an excellent breakfast. Love the hashbrowns.

Dark, cold, winters Monday morning at 7:00am. The coffee was hot, and my cup stayed full. The breakfast was okay. Nothing to write home about, no objections either. Eggs, ham, toast, coffee. Pretty straightforward. Maybe next time I'll have a pancake. Life's difficult choices.

This is the downtown place to go for breakfast. If you go on a Saturday you may have to wait but it is totally worth it.

My friend and I were looking for breakfast in the early afternoon. An omelet was what we were after. I had not been to the Windmill Restaurant in over 25 years, but I remembered that they served breakfast all day long. I found parking behind the restaurant, and walked in thru the back door. I saw a waitress and asked... More
