Dropped in on a Wednesday night - half-price appetizer night, what a bargain. Everybody in our party loved their meal, great flavours, excellent seasoning. Plus the artwork on the walls is lovely to look at.

Wide variety of food choices from eggs benedict to burgers to perogies. Always fresh ingredients, good portions and good value. Often packed for sunday brunch. Beautiful local art on the walls, nice atmosphere, busy at lunch and candle lit at dinner. Staff are professional but never overpowering.

Wonderful place for a family gathering over Sunday Brunch. Cranberry Raisin french toast with maple syrup, Eggs Benedict, Bacon & Eggs all excellent. Good coffee and service even though it was a very busy Sunday.

My wife and I have been having brunch at Windmills almost every weekend for nearly 15 years. Needless to say, we thoroughly enjoy it! The menu is imaginative with a wide variety of choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The portions are ample and the coffee is great. My breakfast favourites are the buttermilk pancakes and the ham and cheese... More
