Highway 49--Gold Rush Country: Auburn, Awful Annie’s

update/p.366

Awful Annie’s  160 Sacramento St., in Historic Old Town, (530) 888-9857.  B-L-D daily; $-$$.  Reservations for 5+.  Everything about this restaurant is appealing--the lace-covered windows, the large outdoor deck with tables covered in cheery blue-and-white-checked plastic tablecloths, the all-day breakfast menu that includes omelettes and scrambles galore and more.  The kitchen is famous for blackberry and cream cheese-stuffed French toast and Grandma’s bread pudding with brandy sauce, and the lunch menu includes scads of salads, sandwiches, and burgers.  My fave is the BLT on sourdough, but I have my eye on the grilled pastrami Rueben made with lean meat, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and thousand-island dressing on swirled rye bread.  Truth be told, Annie’s is awful good.
