GREAT! Simple cafe/diner. Food tastes homemade and a not expensive. Right on the Pella Square. Bring cash, but if you forget there are 3 different banks on the square all with ATMs

Nice little family restaurant. Nothing really special, but usually good food and good service. Handy location near the Pella Square and shopping, attractions.

“Good lunch in small town cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

I and a fee family members went to lunch at the Windmill cafe when it was rather busy. We were seated quickly and I was really surprised by how fast the food arrived given how busy the restaurant was. The wait staff was also attentive to us.

We thought the food was very good. We had three different sandwiches between us. The cheeseburger and gyro were very good, with a good amount of sauce on the gyro. The reuben wasn't necessarily as generous as elsewhere, but tasted delicious. The fries were tasty.

I thought the menu selection was varied given the small town location. The atmosphere included a few TV's, most of which were tubes to sports. At least one TV was devoted to local advertising.

A very reasonably priced meal and nice atmosphere! Great for breakfast and a wonderful lunch. (I always get the French Dip) Credit Cards are not accepted so be prepared with cash.
