So we had the hash brown omelet which was excellent. I ordered with light cheese and light onions. We arrived before the popular 10 AM time on Sunday which had a line up out of the door. Our meal took some time to get to us, so I could see how the place could get quite backed up. Good tea... More

We were stuck in Holland for a few hours waiting for our vehicle to be repaired, so I asked where the locals go for breakfast. They recommended the Windmill on 8th St. Well, they were right, this is a great little coffee and sandwitch shop. We had their breakfast specialty, the hash brown omelette. So much food we couldn't finish!... More

The hash brown omelette is made of mashed potatoes, not shredded potatoes, it's like a Shepard pie in a form of an enormous looking omelette. It tastes good though, just not at all what you'd expect, oh and no eggs in this omelette. The pancakes were very dry and very tasteless, I sent those back.

Well located and nicely appointed hotel. Easy walk to everything we wanted to see. Love the room layout and the bed was extremely comfortable. The downstairs bar had a good beer and wine selection for a night cap.

Enjoyed a breakfast with my daughter. People queuing to get in so always a good sign. We sat at the counter which felt so American !!!! Quick and cheerful service. We ordered 2 different omelettes. Huge portions and very very tasty. Good atmosphere and great staff. Food arrived quickly and was hit on arrival. Would we go again????? Yes indeedy!!!!

If you want a homey, warm restaurant that sells good, basic food this is the place. I recommend breakfast- you can't go wrong. The owners show how much they care and their staff always treats people with kindness and good service.

The Windmill is a cute little restaurant downtown Holland. They are very clean with friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, and delicious food! I love their omelets, and they always give me more food than I can eat.
