This is my second review of Windmill and I just want to add that it is still the best bang for your buck for breakfast. Omelettes are good, along with the Birds nest. Staff is always nice. When we have company and go out for breakfast, this is the place. We sneak in on our own too.

Loved this place right as I entered. Love they have a counter and the Staff was super nice. Prices great and food good. Great omelet and lots of it. I'll certainly return.

This is a very accessible downtown restaurant with good food. I like being able to have breakfast at any time. The meatloaf is good and the omelettes are very good.

Always crowded but worth it. Difficult if you're eating healthy, not that they don't have healthy foods but the temptation of hearty family food is overwhelming. Yes, I should have a fruit plate, oatmeal, and/or whole wheat toast; but the biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, and pancakes are a must.

Good lunch. This is a popular place, often with lines. We had lunch.....shrimp basket and a Philly cheesesteak with hush puppies. All were nicely prepared and very fresh. Overall a good experience.

This is a great spot for breakfast. Always lines out the door. They are allergy for me as they are so helpful with the menu. They do have long lines but they do move quickly. It is small.

Thank Kylie K
