Great value, great food, but very small place! Met a friend for breakfast and the food was delicious for the two of us. This is down-home, good cooking!

We love this place! Had to go twice during our week in Holland. Getting there early is a must because it is small and very popular, but it is worth it! The kids had warm cinnamon rolls that were as big as their heads. My wife had a fantastic custom omelette, my sister had a huge order of French Toast,... More

Seated us in the very last booth for two next to the kitchen door. A bit cramped. Food is decent, typical breakfast grill food. Service was good. Basic. Average.

Came in and had an awesome choice of food. Had the patty melt. It was great. Others had Ruben and omelet and no complaints what so ever. Give it a shot when in the neighborhood

Even though this place is local, I do consider myself a tourist in this case, because that's the way I started here. The Windmill is a good, basic American fare coffee shop, especially for breakfast. As a somewhat hard core seeker of Saturday Breakfast, the Windmill ranks up at the top of my list (which includes the now defunct Empire... More

My daughter and I stopped to eat just before 11:00 on a Monday. We were surprised to see there were four groups ahead of us in line. We waited about 15 minutes and then were seated at the counter. We did have to wait a little while for a server to take our order. We chose the Country Omelette and... More

Unbelievable. That's all we can say. Delicious, affordable, and worth the wait. Couldn't believe the amount of food that we got for the price we paid. Only wish we knew about it earlier in our trip.

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
