This is a main street café, with the comfort food that you would expect.. We were there on a Saturday, busy but the service was quick.

We chose Windmill Cafe for breakfast today. It was perfect. I had the Works Skillet which was a hearty meal with fresh vegetables, meat, cheese and eggs. My husband had French toast that was very tasty. Very cute downtown place. Would highly recommend.
