Their new location off the Forest hill exit of Hwy 80 is much larger and has better parking. Their food, which has always been good, remains so. Since we live locally, we do not frequent it as much as we did when we lived in the bay area and passed through Auburn for Tahoe and skiing. It was a well... More

The new Annie's is just OK. The atmosphere is a simple restaurant. Nothing special. Lots of hustle and bustle.

My husband and I ate at Awful Annie's on our last visit to Auburn. The food was great with outstanding service. We requested a table so we could watch our vehicle, which had our dogs inside, and were accommodated with a window table. The bread pudding was wonderful, this from someone who normally dislikes bread pudding. Now all we have... More

This is a fun restaurant, especially for breakfast. They have a unique twist on breakfast favorites, and the food is delicious and plentiful. It is a buzzing place, but the service is very good and everyone is friendly and helpful. It is great for kids too. It is a great stop for those on their way up to the mountains.

Probably perfect for youngsters headed to the slopes. Otherwise, meh. And meh again. Large food with just OK quality. Will be hard-pressed to try again.

AA is a wonderful dining experience. The food is excellent, the menu varied and the service is small town. We love going there as a couple, family, or office staff.

This was our first time here and I would definitely say this will be our new favorite weekly breakfast spot when we move to the area soon! My Dad has been going here for over 20 years. The crunchy french toast which is only a daily special, was the best french toast we've ever had! Also ordered the potato skin... More
