Annie's Cafe is in a nondescript weathered old building on your right as you first come into Cedar Key. It is several blocks away from the trendier and newer restaurants downtown at the waterfront dock area.
When you enter the restaurant you walk through a tropical garden area that has some eye catching plant arrangements and makes you feel welcome.
The interior is plain but clean and comfortable. The staff is very agreeable and service is prompt.
Your first decision will be whether to dine inside or in the screened in dining room or the outside dining directly on the water. The weather conditions will no doubt drive your decision.
Annie's specializes in good old fashioned cooking that takes you back to the simpler times in Old Florida.
They have grits and greens, biscuits and gravy, and whatever the fresh fish of the day might be. It goes without saying that they have great hushpuppies.
A favorite is their grouper sandwich, and they often have soft shell crab and if you're lucky, they are one of the few places around that still serves mullet when they are available.
Annie's is open for serve breakfast and lunch. If you are not into seafood, they also serve cheeseburgers,
The owner/manager is Lisa, a member of an old Cedar Key family that goes back several generations. The restaurant building began it's life many years ago as a working fish house.
Annie's is open Thursday through Tuesday from 6:30 am to 3:30 pm.
