Description: Annettes is located in the historic Kingwood Building. Originally built in 1928 to be a market place. The building has adopted many occupants through it's time. Annette has given the historic building the respect it deserves with a dramatic makeover inside and out. Many people still remember the old market place and can't believe this is the same building from way back when. Come dine with us in our modern, yet home style stmosphere, with friendly staff to make you feel right at home.

“Home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

This place does not look like much from the outside, inside you'll find great food and pretty good service. Everything is fresh. Really good salads. They do have outside seating as well. Come hungry as the portions are huge.

“A wonderful Surprise !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

We found this great place in West Salem by accident and boy were we surprised when we ordered and discovered the food here is fantastic! Everyone was kind and attentive and friendly. Food is exceptional! I kid you not! And the prices were more than fare since we received a substantial amount on our plates. You don't want t miss this resturant!

Annette's has a great menu, with lots of variety. They serve breakfast all day. They have amazing biscuits & gravy. Their BLT sandwich is perfect, with thick cut bacon. AND they have amazing servers. These ladies take great care of you!!

“Excellent Food and Plenty of Options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Plenty of options on the menu. The vegetarian scramble was very good and very large. The coffee was quite good as well. Service was good, and seating is cozy with small town feel. It is very popular on the weekends, so anticipate at least a 1/2 hour wait for a medium size party.

“Great food but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

To be fair, we did go on a Sunday morning. The place was packed. We waited about 20 minutes to get a table. Once there, it was another 20 minutes or so after ordering before we got our food. It is very loud and the tables are very close together. We really prefer a little more space and privacy when we eat, so this is why the rating is lower. The food was good, maybe even great. The portions are beyond huge. I ordered the California chicken scramble and am still eating on it for breakfast two days later. My husband ordered the biscuit and gravy breakfast, and loved it. Prices are a little high, but not when you consider you have at least half to take home. All in all, I would go there again, but would probably order to go.
