Service was great, food was good. You can tell this place has been there a while, real local feel. Cash only though so be prepared. Didn't get a chance to get the coffee. Menlo Park is a good area in general so I recommends swinging by the downtown area if you are in town

A throwback place to the 50's-60's diner. Food is basic but well done. Prices are very reasonable, the atmosphere is nice and easy. You should try it out if you are in the neighborhood.

For a basic Sunday breakfast that is reasonably priced, this is the place to go! Great pancakes and omelettes. Hash Browns are great too. Coffee not so great. Definitely a place we would return to😊

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.
