Interesting Water Management System
There are currently 19 operational windmills although they are now used only in emergencies when the newer systems breakdown. Well worth seeing!

A good caterer and a very nice restaurant.
We have both eaten in the restaurant and used Windmills (twice) as a caterer. When dining in, service was very good, and the meal was excellent. I had a smoked salmon platter that was amazing. On two occasions, Windmills has catered family events (1 shower and one engagement party). The food was delivered on time, there was plenty of ... read more

Can't wait to try more
Upon entering this restaurant I was immediately struck by it's welcoming atmosphere. I asked the lady behind the counter if they made cappuccinos and when she said yes, I said I'll have one! We were off to a great start.

Good food & service
A friend and I went there for our birthdays. Our waiter was great- friendly and helpful. Food was great and large portion. Staff helped us find some places to go after and were they were fun. Pretty busy on a Saturday so might want to get a reservation.

service above and beyond
food was great but what made our visit was our server, Mark, hands down. We were there on a busy Saturday but the way he treated us you would have thought we were the only customers. He was attentive without being annoying, he was genuinely interested in what our plans for the day were, made suggestions when we told him we were from ... read more

It's a nice place, but the hollandaise sauce always leaves something to be desired. As long as you don't order the eggs benny, you should be fine.

Beautiful spot in the evening with the candles lit, art on the walls ... cozy arrangement of tables and booths. A hopping spot on weekend mornings for brunch. Huevos rancheros will always be a favourite. Windmills has been a cafe fixture in Kingston for a few decades and deservedly so. Always fresh, creative and delicious. The soups ... read more

Good, but not Kingston's best.
My girlfriend and I enjoyed our experience at Windmills over the Family Day long weekend. The restaurant was super busy but they were able to accomodate really well. The food itself was good (not superb). I had the Ranchos Huevos which was a large portion, but in terms of taste I didn't find it the best i've had by any means. My girl ... read more

Fast, friendly service and good food!
I grab breakfast here three or four times a month and over the years have had many lunches, dinners and celebratory events here. The staff are friendly and cheerful, and the food and ambiance have been consistently great in all that time. Always a pleasure!

Wonderful brunch!
This was my third visit to Windmills and my second brunch. The food continues to be exceptional. The eggs benedict are second to none. The staff and service are top notch. Overall, one of my favourite places to dine.

Dinner: Calamari perfectly cooked with two dipping sauces, an aioli and an exquisite sofrito type tomato dipping sauce. Salmon seared, with a moist and flaky interior on a perfectly cooked fennel risotto, topped with an onion confit and shavings of fennel and crisp apple. A perfect combination. Service was excellent.

My friends and I were up in Kingston for Homecoming weekend and decided to check out Windmills for brunch. It was the perfect spot for great food and friendly service.

Good restaurant, convenient to HDH hospital
Interesting menu. Good selection of local wines and beer. Super display of art works on the walls. Good service, although delivery of food can be slow. Especially in the winter, avoid a table near the front door as you will get a chilly draft. Very convenient to Hotel Dieu Hospital and the Chown municipal parking garage.

Pleasantly surprised, exceeded expectations
It was a very busy homecoming weekend in Kingston… Couldn't get into regular favourites for dinner, but did get a reservation at Windmills. It too was very busy, but we were not disappointed. In particular the espresso short ribs and shrimp tacos-apparently new on the menu-were excellent. Very much enjoyed this meal.

Tasty Breakfast, Friendly Service
In my mind, a weekend breakfast should include good food, efficient service and friendly staff to ensure your day off begins well - Windmills "hit the mark." My server took good care of me, even though the restaurant was busy, and she was very pleasant, enhancing the start to my lazy day. I just had bacon and eggs but the meal was fl ... read more

The food is amazing. My sister has gluten allergies and was able to find something delicious. I had the steak and it was amazing. The onion butter with homemade bread omg. Wonderful lady server. The patio is ok, traffic is busy but definitely worth going.

Very good food and very good service
Our appetizer of sliced meats and cheeses on a slab was simply delicious with a pleasant Pinot Grigio. We both then selected the lamb shank which really melted in your mouth. Very tender....perhaps a tad lacking in seasoning. Our dinner was in the front half of the cafe, thus the music in the rear was not obtrusive at all. A very n ... read more

Casual Fine Dining!
Title says it all. They claim to be casual fine dining and that's the truth. We came at a very quiet time but we're so well attended. Food was beautiful and a very welcome change from steaks, burgers, wings and Fries... Though they have those too! If you're in Kingston don't miss this place.
