Very ice little small town diner with delicious food and plentiful portions. We ate about half our service, it was huge. We had chicken carbonara and a turkey dinner with all the fixings. Potatoes were pasty, veges were local grown and fresh. Definitely worth the money, open long hours and serve all three meals. One of the best buys for... More

I love the omelets and the potatoes for breakfast at this diner in downtown Windham. Responsive service. They only take cash, so make sure you hit the ATM before stopping in for breakfast or lunch.

Our first time here and it won't be the last! Friendly and quick service and really good food await you here. Clean and lots of parking in the lot or on the street. Wonderful coffee and excellent price on Main street in Windham.

What a gem! My only regret is we don't live closer. The food was delicious and the servings HUGE. The prices were very reasonable and the staff very accommodating. Everything was delicious and homemade. You feel like you are a part of their family and each staff member stops by to see if you need anything. To our surprise, the... More

You definitely want to be woken up in the morning by Tracey, the happy waitress at Michael's. She was genuinely cheerful and had a great attitude. Oh, and the breakfast was pretty good and reasonably priced. I believe we were charged only a dollar for coffee (with refills). We were told that the lunch and dinner items are all freshly... More

I had my 1st egg creme here - yuck! Im sure its great as far as egg cream's go but I have decided I don't like egg creams. Everything else was fantastic. The bacon and eggs were perfect to how I ordered them and the home fries were almost like my parents restaurant growing up - so tasty. My husband... More

We stopped here on our way home from a weekend at Hunter Mountain. The place is very, very clean. The waitress was excellent. She was nice and talked to my 3 year old son, even giving him a toy car to play with and take home. The food was great and good sized portions, great prices too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you

Stopped in this weekend after hearing oositive things about it. You can't really ruin an omette, but it can be above average and this was! Tasty, loaded w/veggies, and cooked right. My husband had the sirloin w/mushrooms and onions and ate the entire thing - it was a huge portion. Owner friendly and comes out to chat. Will return. Good... More

There were not a lot of options in Windham. This place got decent reviews. We were very warmly welcomed to this old-school diner. Fresh salad, good pasta dish too. We bought some local jam and honey, 5 bucks each. Cole Slaw deliciousness with my grilled cheese sandwich. Very fresh, good service. No credit cards... Boohoo We should have gone back... More
