If you are looking for breakfast with atmosphere, keep on looking.
Annie’s is not your place. It is more dive than diva, but you are barely in the door before your first cup of coffee is on the table and a menu in your hand. We got the last table in the restaurant, the one closest to the restroom and the kitchen, which was not ideal, but believe me, if a table is available, you will be lucky. We have been told that, in the summer, hour waits are not uncommon.
Right after your coffee, you will be offered fresh-squeezed orange juice that is sweet, pulpy, and all together terrific. We were in love before we had even eaten a bite. We had a carafe of hot coffee to hold us over while we perused the menu, and it was good coffee. The menu offers most of the regulars: omelets; scrambled, fried, or poached eggs, pancakes; French toast and waffles; fresh-fruit cups; homemade coffee cake; and home fries just to mention a few.
I ordered scrambled eggs and bacon, with one banana pancake on the side. The eggs were cooked perfectly, and the bacon was nice and crispy. The banana pancake, however,
was the winner. It was wonderful, perfectly cooked to a golden brown, with chunks of fresh banana cut in it and on top, and served attractively. My only beef was that it was served with Log Cabin syrup, not real maple. Cindy had very delicious-looking eggs Benedict. The home fries are real winners, although I only ate one. They are thick slices of potato, with the skins intact, cooked to a golden brown. We got a breadbasket that had Portuguese sweet bread and some of the homemade coffeecake in it; that alone should bring you running. All this was served by a friendly waitress for under $15. You can’t go wrong. Bring cash, because Annie’s doesn’t take credit cards.
