I’d seen this place a hundred times but never came in. Last week, my BFF and I decided to try it for lunch. Very clean old school diner. The waitstaff was very friendly. We chose to sit in a booth instead of the large counter...More

Downtown Menlo Park, so there's a hunt for a parking space, but usually something nearby. Old time coffee shop atmosphere, and they DON'T take credit cards. It was very chilly inside on a rainy, cool morning and we kept our coats on. At 10:30 AM...More

We were introduced to Ann's by a volunteer from the next door Cancer Resale Store. We always enjoy a good browse there, both for the items and the cause. We asked for a good but modestly priced place to eat in downtown Menlo Park. We...More

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.
