Great for indoor or outdoor dining

Love the atmosphere indoors or out. Have always had friendly good service. Everything we have ordered we have loved. We know this place is always good but sometimes we order something that is beyond our expectations. Even when there is a line it has always been worth the wait.

We are a regular here for Sunday brunch. Whenever my family is in town they always request to go here at least once. Always great food and good service. Normally always busy, but worth the wait.

This location, and the one they have in Auburn, CA, have the best breakfast I have ever had. They have the most unique omelets it is hard to choose just one, so we go there weekly! The biscuits are to die for, and their waffles are delish. Had a taste of the bloody mary, and it was also incredible, and... More

Looking for a breakfast or Lunch spot then you have found it. The food is very fresh with good portions. Great value with many options. Prepare to wait a bit as it is very popular. The service is excellent and very friendly.

This is a very good breakfast or brunch spot. Located in historic downtown Lincoln, very cute inside, and very good food! You'll want to go back.

I always enjoy going to Awful Annie's. Always good food, friendly service and charm. Their homemade soups are always good, they have many choices from quiche to hamburgers. Lots of atmosphere with a train going by occasionally. Easy to visit without yelling at each other. So good food, charming atmosphere, friendly service - what more do we need. Open for... More

Awful Annie's is in the old Town section of Lincoln and a popular place. Filled with knick knacks and charming antiques it's definitely a sweet, country-style restaurant. Known for its breakfasts with omelettes and waffles it also offers burgers, sandwiches, soups and salads. I got the Raspberry Chicken Salad and my husband got the Pear Walnut Salad, both were huge...

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.

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 they continued to offer... More
