After visiting friends in Windsor we were told to have breakfast at the Squirrel Cage. We attended on a Sunday morning and 14 of us got seated after about 10 minutes. The breakfast was amazing and the atmosphere we hip! Service was quick and the meal was affordable! A great place for breakfast when you are in Windsor!

One of the best breakfasts in Windsor, hands down! Been coming here since it opened and am never disappointed. Eggs Bene are my favourite here. A hidden gem downtown!

We are here on a recent visit and had a delicious meal. We enjoyed our meal so much that we went back the next day as well. The owner is very personable and makes you feel at home.
