Good Service - Traditional Breakfast -- Cash Only

Good breakfast food, consistent from what you would expect if you went to your grandmother's for breakfast. eggs, breakfast meat, toast, pancakes, and waffles in numerous configurations. Booths are a little tight for four people, but overall a good breakfast choice in the area.

Nothing special, but does its job. Standard coffee shop fare. Prices are reasonable but have gone up slightly recently.

I had pancakes and side of bacon and both were just okay. I can see why locals enjoy coming here but the food I had wasn't good enough to return.

Everything about Ann's is old fashioned. The orange colored booths, the wall art from the 1970s, the fact that they only take cash, the friendly waitresses and the food. They serve what I would call typical American breakfast and lunch items. The coffee is weak and the food is good but not great. Still, sometimes that's just what we want... More

The fact that this old school, counter and pie type diner still exists, especially in Silicon Valley is a reason in itself to go. Just the Americana experience that you only see in the Mid West. If you are in the area and want to throwback to the 50's Go to Ann's. This is real, not fake.

Walking on Santa Cruz Ave. in Menlo Park .........walked into this place to have the best Rhubarb Pie that I remember. The environment has a town feel and food cooked home style....waitress was very kind and explained with details the menu content. - Thinking to come back to have their famous pancakes and Eggs Benedict !

While the booths are most uncomfortable for a grown man, the food is consistenly good....particularly the breakfast/all day French toast and pancakes. Service is efficient and pleasant so I forgive the discomfort!

How much can you say about a diner. I went to get a fast breakfast with coffee and that's what I got. The décor was a throwback to east coast diners from New Jersey. If you have ever been to one, you know what I mean. The coffee was good and hot. I had a combo 1 egg scrambled with... More
