“Closed Down”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant closed down for good in October 2013. Shame. It was a good spot to eat. There is nothing planned for the existing building.

“Welllll ....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Okay, so the interior can only be described as shabby - even back in the 50s it would have been considered shabby, but the food! Yes, it's traditional North American Chinese restaurant fare, but the serving sizes were absolutely amazing and the food was hot and delicious. Only one server for the entire space, but we didn't feel like we had to wait too long. Would definitely visit again, and bring the family - our "usual" order at home leaves us with 1 and a half take out containers for tomorrow's lunch. At the Windy Cafe, the same order, same approx. price, and we walked away with 3 and half take out containers. Oooops, wished we had know. Oh well, we'll be back.

“Great lunch spot!”

We had the hot and sour soup and dumplings for lunch. Both were great and freshly made. The dumplings were homemade and were very tasty.
