We ate here for lunch on a Saturday, and the food was great quality and came quickly. I had a BBQ bacon cheeseburger with fries, and my wife had a wrap with chicken, feta cheese, lettuce, and cucumbers. Both were very good, but the wrap...More

Been here a few times when traveling to Pella. The food is great and the atmonsphere like a old small town diner. Highly recommend breakfast or lunch at the Windmill

Great breakfast place with lots of old fashioned menu combinations like eggs over-easy with bacon, hash browns, toast, and coffee. No surprises here which could be helpful for early-morning decision-making.
