Courtyard Cafe at Windsor Arms Hotel
Stepping into the Courtyard Cafe at Windsor Arms Hotel is like stepping back in time—more precisely, to 1927, when the hotel was constructed. A huge chandelier in the lobby foreshadows the cafe's two-storey elegance, which unfolds as your eyes travel upwards. Towering wood columns and dramatically tall curtains stretch toward bright rays streaming in from skylights, and the verdant foliage in a late-Romantic-era mural seems to be nourished by that sunlight.
Closer to eye level, accents including Victorian-style light fixtures and striped banquettes round out the sophisticated ambience. The hotel is known for occasional celebrity sightings, and the courtyard regularly echoes with live jazz music that helps to keep the hollandaise sauce smooth.
