“It is what it is”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

We chose this place tempted in by the trial of Spanish dognuts ... Not churros and no choc sauce but it was a good way of making us notice the place.

Beyond that the menu is good for lunch ... It's licensed and a cold beer was welcome ... But ever since that burger has been kicking me with indigestion!!!

Walk on by and lunch at one of the market cafés would be my advice.

“After two visits”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

This was our second time in a month at the Windmill cafe our first visit was much better than the second. On the first visit we had a salmon bagel & a beef burger which were very nice along with coffee. On our second visit we had a fish burger & a beef burger both of which were very average. Service on both occasions was pretty good.

“It sucked”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

The service was poor, they weren't busy but we had to wait ages for takeaway. My smoothie was ok but the food was average.

“Bad service and hygiene.”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Went with five adults and all meals came out at different times. Orders were wrong and two orders missing being fisherman's basket and a serve of chips. After complaining of not getting them, waited over an hour to get this order as they said they forgot about it. When complained again they stated they turned the fryer off. Once the fisherman's basket was cooked, gave it to the wrong table who started eating it. They realized it was wrong table and picked it up from other table and placed it in front of us. Complained about this in which they took it back to the kitchen to add chips to it and bring it back. Still waiting for the serve of chips on the side. Apparently it is too difficult for then to fry chips. A major cluster of an experience and owners did nothing to fix the situation and didn't care. Will never eat there again and will be telling friends about it.
