Annie's Café & Bar is a modern Brasserie in the heart of downtown Austin, Texas. Inspired by the bustling bistros of New York and the great literary sidewalk cafés of Europe, owners Love Nance and Sherry Jameson have reinvigorated the legendary Day Building at 319 Congress and created a space not only for dining but for meeting, drinking and experiencing. Monday through Saturday, the smell of freshly baked baguettes and simmering soups complement sound from the clinking of glasses. A familiar team of loyal staff return and a new chapter in Austin culinary history begins.
Annies Austin HistoryEstablished in 1982 as Apple Annies, Nance and Jameson lost their lease of 26 years and found themselves without a home. Rather than simply relocate, they decided to start anew with the vision of a full-scale restaurant open daily from 7am to midnight, serving everyone from morning joggers looking for fresh organic omelets; to legislators insisting on Annie's famous meatloaf; to couples gazing across a leg of lamb in the evening; to artists, writers and night creatures sitting, sipping and enjoying a new downtown Austin vibe.
