My wife and I stopped at the Windmill Restaurant for breakfast during a trip to Michigan. It's located on a quaint street in the heart of downtown Holland. My wife ordered scrambled eggs, hash browns and biscuits while I had a vegetarian omelette and fluffy wheat toast. Both were delicious meals to start the day. We had several refills of... More

This popular diner in downtown Holland us a popular place and usually there is a wait to be seated. Small but neat and clean, noisy and crowded, reasonable prices, Dutch decor, friendly and knowledgable servers, good service and great food. Seating at the counter is an option to waiting for a table or booth. We had fresh summer salads with... More

While there is always a line for Windmill it's well worth waiting. The line moves quickly and they have the best breakfast in town! Stuffed hash browns and homemade cinnamon rolls can't be beat. Huge portions, great prices and good service.

This is a little hole in the wall diner situated on a quaint street. The atmosphere is typical diner and the food is nothing fancy but good breakfast fare. The menu was very basic but servers were nice and prompt.

Recently stopped in for breakfast before checking out the darling shops downtown. Highly recommend the fried cinnamon roll, yum!! Fast service, great with kids but fairly small. Even on a weekday we waited a bit, and the line was really long when we left!

Me and my husband love the food here. We are looking for a brunch type food and saw that there is a line out the door around 11am. Good thing we decided to hold our hunger and go back, because it's worth the wait! We had breakfast type food and the homemade toast bread is amazing! Very affordable and real... More

We enjoyed breakfast here in spite of having to wait in a line that went out the door. The turnover is quick and the staff are friendly and very organized. I was surprised at the large yummy cinnamon roll that came as a standard choice of bread with my breakfast choice.

We decided to go here based on previous reviews. I am so glad we did. It was Monday and the rain was really coming down and still people stood in line out the door. We met a lovely lady that meets her son there every Monday and the staff call her nana. With the reviews she gave while we were... More

Next time ( and there WILL be a next time) we will share a meal- felt very wasteful because we couldn't eat near what they gave us. Server was so friendly and helpful if a bit rushed. Good food, worth the wait to get in!

Thank jvangets
