I never knew this place was even there! A friend took me for lunch, wow! It was great! So great that I took another friend 2 weeks later & she loved it also! It was really crowded & kinda loud but we had fun looking around the store. I'll be back for sure!

We have only been for lunch (breakfast menu looks good too). standard cafe fare, soup, salad, sandwich. Salad's are fresh. They also have kid's/comfort food chicken noodle casserole (Campbell's?) and grilled cheese. Service is friendly. Nothing too exciting but one of the better lunch stops in Jackson if you don't want a typical chain restaurant. Clean, small, can be crowded... More

This little place has great breakfast and lunch items, great coffee, sweet staff and fun decor. Wonderful for brunch with friends and a quick shop in the store. I never leave without finding a little something. It's the place I bring my foreign exchange students to for their first breakfast in America. They always love it!

I go pretty regularly when in Jackson. What an unassuming place in an unassuming neighborhood but I love the place. Food is well prepared adn service is attentive. I especially like the breakfasts, and a great place for a meeting too.

Open for breakfast and lunch, this tiny cafe (ok, can be a little cramped) delivers outstanding service and very good food. Daily specials are an extra bargain. Lunch menu features sandwiches, quiche, soups...all homemade. Exceptional breakfast offerings include usual egg dishes, french toast and pancakes. If you are there late morning or early afternoon, you can browse the adjacent gift... More

A fantastic menu, great service, friendly wait staff. Have never had anything to eat at Anna's that wasn't absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is a bit crowded, however, especially when they are busy, as the tables are very close together. But I love it here and I try to have lunch her regularly.

I visit Anna's semi regularly for lunch with co workers. It is a narrow, bright, attractive cafe attached to a much larger gift shop. it can be a bit pricey but I love their salmon burger, open faced hot crab sandwich, and many of their delicious salads. The waitresses have been there forever and are quick, quick, quick. An experience... More

Anna's Porch Cafe is in the back of a very nice shop; the cafe does have an entrance from the back parking lot. We have only eaten here for lunches. The Maurice Salad is nice, not as good as the original Maurice Salad from Hudson's, but close. The dressing is different. The portions of all their menu items are large.... More
