I love this place. It's a true throwback. They have not changed up the decor or menu much from the 1960s. I go here for weekend brunches and mostly stick to the eggs,hash browns and coffee. They have a good variety of pies too. It is refreshing to go to a place that is not a chain, has character and... More

Took my mom for lunch and the place was quite busy. Food was average,but prices low, so definitely a fine place to have lunch on a weekday. No cards accepted, so remember to bring cash.

The food is amateurish. The service if fair. The booths are tiny. The ambiance is a time warp. But the value is good and your coffee cup will never be empty. You could do worse.

A very busy, straightforward, local diner serving great breakfast for decades. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, particularly the specials. Be sure to start with the fresh-squeezed orange juice. Safe travels! ... Mark & Dana ...

Good old American breakfast and lunch, just as you would expect it to taste. Formica tables in booths and countertop. Homemade pies!

This place has been around for a long time and the food is good and reasonably priced. Ann's changed hands years ago but never missed a step of quality. The eggs seem to be single cracked and the pancakes are memorable. The staff are pleasant and always willing to just do the extra. Nice family/neighborhood feeling.

Being in Ann's is like a trip back in time. There's a counter and the layout probably hasn't changed in 60 years. Full diner menu. Love their breakfasts and they always have plenty of pies. Friendly service and hometown feel.

Trust me, you do not go for the artwork or the decor ( which have all been there since a remodel in the 1960's.) But, the food is standard, good, American home cooking. Items served could be corned beef hash, pot roast or blt's. Your choice of sides could be chips, slaw or jello. And, Ann's is famous for their... More

Most of the food in this place is hand made from scratch, and I am guessing that the recipes date back to the 1950s. This is not a bad thing, and their constant flow of customers of all ages demonstrates that their appeal is timeless. The entrees often include thinks such as pot pies, stews, turkey dinners, pot roast, and... More

Nothing special, but does its job. Standard coffee shop fare. Prices are reasonable but have gone up slightly recently.
