We were at Awful Annie's on the Presidents' Holiday, and arrived about 11:30am... Their location requires street parking, and since it was the holiday, we parked a few blocks away. I'd seen on reviews that they are dog friendly, and they have a covered porch they serve on, but there isn't much room, so you aren't able to have your... More

Awful Annie's is an institution in Old Town, Auburn. Right off the interstate Hwy 80 it is a favorite for locals and travelers alike. Daily specials always give you something different from the standard fare, but everything is so good. Try the grilled salmon sandwich, monte cristo French toast or the four flavors of bacon as a side. Their Bloody... More

I have eaten at Awful Annie's many times and have NEVER been disappointed. Their menu is large and filled with choices that are not only delicious but also nutritious. Best of all, they cater to my gluten/dairy-free needs. I can always find something wonderful to eat there. I can highly recommend AA's for your breakfast/lunch dining pleasure.

Yup, it's true. Our old favorite breakfast place for the last 30 years is moving to the old Lou LaBonte's location in Auburn on the frontage road next to Interstate 80, which will be a much bigger restaurant (which would be good for the usual waiting lines). The tip off was a temporary sign on the side of the present... More

Every time we're in Auburn, Awful Annie's is at the top of the list of places to go for breakfast or lunch. This past week we enjoyed another great meal, our only problem being what to order with so many delicious sounding choices. Don't miss it when you're in Auburn!

I've tried most of the breakfast restaurants in Auburn (including the popular Katrina's), but for me Annie's is he best. Check out the crab cake Benedict...delicious.

I had lunch there with my mom. The food was excellent and the service. I love the bread pudding! The menu has a good variety. Be hungry! The atmosphere is old fashion. They also sell cook books with their recipes.

Don't know who ever came up with the "awful"-but it's anything but. In all honesty I've not tried much of the menu because I have my favorites. Never a lover of chicken fried steak-but here it's delicious. Tender with a creamy gravy (I like it on the side) it goes great with a couple of eggs and their good potatoes.... More
