  • This place is pretty good, just don’t go there if you’re in a hurry. The service is generally on the slow side.

    They did just add outdoor seating, however.

  • I’ve only been there once or twice for breakfast sandwiches and lattes, but it was a cute little place, the food was good, and the service was friendly. Seemed like it was family-owned and operated.

  • we love windows here in ledroit! but yeah, they’re not the fastest. good for weekends.

  • I haven’t tried the food, but it is the neighborhood cop hang out and that must be promising right?
    The market is great in a jiffy, definitely the best wine selection in the neighborhood. For a quick beer and wine stop I always go to Windows. They have a unique, pleasantly international collection of canned goods, choices one wouldn’t generally expect in such a small market with limited choices.

  • the Abeje’s, the husband and wife who own the place, are very courteous and friendly, and have done a great job of asking the community what it wanted when stocking the store.

    The sandwiches are of good quality for the price.

    Don’t go if you’re in a hurry though. The sandwiches and coffee order take forever.

  • the abejes, who are the family who own windows, are great people, and have put their heart and soul into the store. mrs. abeje was assaulted in a robbery a couple years ago, and that’s what brought about increased police presence. since the MPD started checking in on the commercial areas in bloomingdale and ledroit with regularity, the problems have almost completely gone away (i haven’t heard of any corner-store hold-ups in the neighborhood since).

  • I live near here. The lattes are good but I’ve been making my own at home to save money. The service is REALLY SLOW! If you’re in a hurry just go down to Micky D’s, you’ll save time and money.

  • This is down the block from me and definitely my go-to corner store. They have most things I need, and a lot I don’t, such as the inexplicable $9 organic granola (but a complete lack of bread!). Coffee and is fine, food is fine—nothing terribly special but it has a varied selection, is close, clean, and the people who own it are really nice.

    A southwest sandwich with a bag of red hots has cured many a hangover for me. The wait for the sandwich while hungover kills me though.

  • I currently live nearby and love Windows (more for the store than the cafe). Nice wine selection, and a pretty amazing collection of canned goods, pasta, soups, etc. Not the best for fresh stuff (dairy, cheese, veggies), but they do have some of that as well. I think Windows is a great example of how a Plexiglass corner store can keep pace with neighborhood change without going under. The Abejes made a decision to market goods to the “new” neighbors without sacrificing their existing clientele and happily I believe it is working for them. I also like the cafe part (good sandwiches), but yes they are slowish.

  • I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.



  • Slow…food is decent
