“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

The food was very fresh, nice variety lunch menu. We enjoyed it so much that we went two days in a row! "The Windsor" chicken panini was our groups favorite. it comes with greens and a wonderful, tangy dressing. Tasteful contemporary decor. Lunch with a soda is around $12. Not the place to go if you are in a major rush though as it is a small operation. The staff was quite pleasant.

“A new favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We stopped in for a drink and a light lunch during a bike ride a couple weeks ago. We split a Chicken salad and the staff were kind enough to put it on two plates. Judging by the size my husband said it was like 2 salads. The portion was amazing. Well worth our money. And they have a great drinks list. We both tried 2 new beers that sunny Sunday afternoon. We ate outside and loved the quiet atmosphere. A true hidden treasure here in Windsor. We will be back for sure.

“Good Sandwiches, Friendly Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Went to the the Squirrel Cage today, and although it is tucked in behind and away from the main streets, this "hole in the wall" is definitely a place to visit. The decor is fantastic and the food meets expectations too. Generously sized portions provides good bang for your buck. $10 (ish) for sandwich and a salad (with DELICIOUS house dressing), I'll be back!

Meals are perfect in size and price. Service is excellent and sometime very entertaining, Stephen and John make you feel at home. Coffee is great.

“I'll squirrel my way here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Excellent food, excellent atmosphere! You won't even know you're in Windsor, but somewhere in the woods! The choice of music helps with the mood as well!
