“Still a quaint little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

The Cafe is under new management. The food is still good and the decor is quaint. The wait staff kept our coffee cups full and were friendly. They offer half orders of some breakfast items at a reduced price which is nice for those looking for a lighter selection.

“Great place until new owners took over in Summer 2012. Now horrible!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

We used to love going to this small cafe - would visit almost every week. Since new owners took over last summer, the food and service is awful! First of all, they claim to be serving Pepsi products, but whatever came out of that machine definitely wasn't Mountain Dew or Pepsi. Cold coffee and when you ask for a fresh, hot cup, they'll just microwave the cup you had and it still comes back barely warm. We noticed numerous other customers were sending their coffee back because it wasn't warm enough. The food was atrocious, right down to even the ketchup, which did not even taste like ketchup. And, not sure what they're using for ground beef, but that even tasted sketchy. Seems like they cut a lot of corners on quality. The waitress, who appeared to be one of the owners, never even came back once after our food was served to ask us how it was. Definitely will not be going back to this restaurant again unless current owners sell and new owners take over. Would not recommend!!!

“Anne's Cafe on the Park..a quaint delight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We've eaten at this cafe several times, and have always found the food very good..especially enjoy the breakfasts! So good, that sometimes it's packed and you wait for a table!!
The restaurant is clean and the service has been great..very friendly, efficient wait staff.
The view of the park across from the cafe is lovely. This restaurant is quaint and remiscent of the 50s, which is delightful! We find it a relaxing, all around good time.
