If you are in West Salem and looking for a place for excellent food or just coffee and a piece of home made cake this is the place to go, servings are a little small but the taste of the different items is out standing. It is on the expensive side but worth it.

This was our first visit to this restaurant, and it was on my birthday. I wanted the lunch to be special. The menu was extensive, with lots of both breakfast and lunch items available. So hard to choose. Settled on their pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries and a cup of their clam chowder. The clam chowder was way... More

We were there for breakfast on the weekend. Expect a wait. Food was excellent and plentiful but a bit on the expensive side. We took home enough for a second meal.

This is a busy little café, and the reason is the food. Good service too. The breakfast skillet with chicken, avocado and shrimp is delicious. I have food allergies and they accommodate me. This is a good place for hearty servings. You get a lot for what you pay for. Also, I can highly recommend the Bloody Mary. It's delicious!... More

We stumbled onto Annette's a few years ago and have been going there ever since. They have a wonderful salad bar with lots of goodies you can help your self to; although, because of the extended semi-opague glass sneeze shield, you have to be a bit of a contortionist to reach some of the options. The other night I could... More

We tried this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. It had great casual atmosphere and a friendly staff. There were so many good items on the menu that it was hard to choose. We finally chose burgers because they were the daily special. The buns looked and tasted like they were made and baked in the...

Annettes is located in the historic Kingwood Building. Originally built in 1928 to be a market place. The building has adopted many occupants through it's time. Annette has given the historic building the respect it deserves with a dramatic makeover inside and out. Many people still remember the old market place and can't believe this is the same building from way back when. Come dine with us in our modern, yet home style stmosphere, with friendly staff to make you feel right at home.
