Great place for breakfast

I used to eat at the Auburn location in the 90's and then moved away. I just had breakfast at the Lincoln location and it remains as good as ever. It has lots of options beyond the standard breakfast fare and the toast seems homemade. The service was excellent and we spent 2 hours talking and... read more

They have great decor in the older building, this used to be the butcher shop a long time ago. The food was good but I think the price is a little high, especially the price of coffee. Seating is a little close but ok. Staff were wonderful very helpful.

After another weekly adventure, this time to CA historical marker #400 in Virginiatown, I went in search of another local restaurant. Nearest was the town of Lincoln, and I couldn't pass up a cafe called Awful Annie's. The only thing I knew about the town of Lincoln was the growth they've seen in the last 10 years so I was...

Located off the old highway through town. This breakfast spot can get busy. Wait times vary on group size. Decently paced are the staff to host and wait for the table. American food offerings and a mid priced point. One can find some coupons in various entertainment books. Most breakfasts I order dishes with eggs. Eggs come with potatoes. Food... More

It's always nice to go into a place that feels like your Grandmother's kitchen. The staff was extremely pleasant. Jennifer, our server, talked to us as though we were guests in her home. The food tasted like my midwest Grandmother's breakfast. Fresh cut fruit, warm muffins, fluffy pancakes, and thick french toast. I love IHOP, but nothing beats home cooking!

Awful Annie is a popular family-owned place for breakfast, especially after church. There may have some waiting time which varies, but they will let you know the approximate time. The Staff is very pleasant and accommodating. They have a place at the upper deck for a larger group for special occasions, if you make arrangements in advance. They offer a... More
