Awful Annie's is an Auburn classic destination. Good food with good vibe in the dining room. Be prepared to wait if on a weekend at breakfast time.

Seems to be a popular place. Located close to the freeway and very busy. The staff is very nice and accommodating, but the breakfast seemed average.

YES! and more YES! Per many other reviewers, this place can be CROWDED and NOISY ( I just carry earplugs all the time these days )...with that being said, the food is always very good, not great, but always good. And nice large portions, I usually take some home. Suggestion: If a small party, try sitting at the bar, there... More

We went there a few days ago and the food was great. I had breakfast everything tasted so fresh and good. I had the cheese omelet which was perfectly cooked. Prices were good and everyone enjoyed the food. It wasn't real busy as we went during the week. Lots of room in there too.

Great food, great prices. Awful Annie's is a wonderful place for breakfast or lunch. The portions are large and can be shared. The restaurant is very clean and the wait staff are friendly.

Been here so many times, used to go to the original place in Old Town Auburn CA. This is the new expanded place just off the freeway, the food is good, but it is noisy because it is normally bustling. The staff is good and friendly and depending on how many in your party will depend on how long it... More

Was there for lunch on a Saturday recently. Going in, I thought "how crowded could they be?". Turns out the answer was "off the charts". Made a can of sardines look like the Sahara desert. I am not at all sure that I have ever witnessed a crush like this. In the face of this onslaught the staff was unruffled,... More

I go to this restaurant at least once a month. We were celebrating a young ladies soon-to-be 17th birthday. What a delightful way to be with friends and my three daughters. Some of us had breakfast and some had lunch. I had a very delicious Bacon Lettuce Tomato Avocado 1/2 sandwich on marbled rye with a very healthy green salad.... More
