The Squirrel Cage

About Us

The Squirrel Cage is an upscale cafe in downtown Windsor owned and operated by Toronto transplants John Ansell and Steven Thompson, whose love of finely tuned homemade food and a desire to create a restaurant from the ground up brought them here, to Windsor.

"We both have a very creative side and have always wanted to own and run our very own restaurant...Our love of cooking and entertaining is what drives us to keep our customers satisfied and coming back...If you haven't yet, Come on in and give The Squirrel Cage a whirl!"

Established July of 2012, The Squirrel Cage opened to rain and thunder but gave way to a hustle and bustle of daily lunches, weekend brunches and passers through coming for their ever important morning caffeine shock.

Over the year the business has grown into an important community fixture holding special events, alley art shows and everything in between.

There's no reason to feel cagey here. Come on in.
