At a recent lunch visit, there was only one server working the entire main dining room. That guy was great, but it did cause some lag time in getting menus, drinks, etc. The hot & sour soup was neither, and I am an aficianado in that area. Crab Rangoon was OK, tofu rolls were tasty, especially the peanut sauce. My... More

We stop by here occasionally for lunch. This is the traditional Viet Nam Soup. You will like it HOT. My mouth still burns.

Chicken curry in clay pot with Jasmine rice and pot stickers. Wonderful little gem nestled in a bohemian neighborhood. The atmosphere is quaint. The staff is very friendly.

If you're looking for down home, comfort, cozy, no frills vietnamese food served with a smile and that comfort that only comes from Momma's kitchen THIS is your place! Nestled in the heart of Beechmont this hidden gem is truly worth whatever length of trip throughout the city. It is conveniently located just a mile(ish?) off Watterson. My son *always*... More

My boyfriend and I frequently come to Annie Cafe. It is always delicious and consitent. My favorite menu items are the claypots. They're always flavorful and the meat tender.

Came here for lunch on recommendations from a friend. The atmosphere is nothing special but it is clean and comfortable. Our server was prompt and we got our food quickly. I got one of the soups and it was really quite good. Cheap, too! Recommended for a quick and filling lunch.

I don't feel good writing this review, because I was once in love with this place. The quality of the food has decreased. The lo mein I ordered was sticky and slimy, and I was missing some of the items in my order. The place still has it warm feeling, and i still like the owners, but i can't go... More

After searching for a Vietnamese restaurant while recently visiting Louisville, I was happy to see Annie Café listed. Having several personal friends who own Vietnamese restaurants, I was excited to see how this one compared. Unfortunately, there really was no comparison. I initially had asked if they had tom rang muoi and I was happy to find out they did.... More

We tried Annies Cafe because we were having a pho craving and Vietnam Kitchen was closed. I've been here once before and the food was decent and the chicken wing appetizer was incredible. Not so much this time around. The good stuff first, the prices are good and the food was prepared and served quickly. That's about it for the... More

The venue is fairly dull, but the food is very bright. A large selection of Vietnamese dishes. Good service all of the time.
