Our hotel was having lot's of bad reviews regarding the breakfast. So we decided not to try it at all and walked to windmill cafe instead. Very basic, good American breakfast which fits the bill.

Was tired of bar food and greasy junk so I searched for home cooking! I found it here and enjoyed the open faced beef sandwich and some soup. Very good!

The food is plentyful and delicious. Service is top notch. The omlets are very tasty and the waffels are soft on the inside and slightly crispy on the outside...just right!

I had breakfast for lunch--corned beef hash with poached eggs on top, an old-timey favorite of mine. Good service, interesting varied menu.

We stopped in for lunch and ordered two different specials they were offering. The food quickly arrived, but we were both a little disappointed. The quality of the food was lacking, but was not bad. The portions were small and we both left hungry. The...More
