Granny B's Cafe - Hole in the wall that fills hole in stomach
Granny B's offers up a small menu with breakfast and lunch. They serve it up fresh, fast, and friendly...with generous portions. I am a breakfast lover, and I was famished, so I ordered up Nat's Omelet: grilled turkey, crispy bacon, and swiss cheese. For an extra $1 I traded up my toast for a biscuit, and then ordered a side of gravy.
The omelet was above average, but filled with a hearty blend of turkey, bacon, and swiss, and then topped with more swiss and more bacon. With the side of crispy hash browns (just the way I like them) it would have been more than enough. But wait! Don't forget that biscuit and gravy!
In my opinion there is only one place in Anchorage with a better biscuit and gravy (my beloved Spenard Roadhouse). These are fresh and piping hot, and the gravy has a nice sausage/gravy ratio.
Granny's is not going to blow you away with fancy culinary offerings like the Spenard Roadhouse, but it is perfect for what it has to offer. This is a cozy little place with great historical photos and blue collar dishes. I doubt you will be disappointed, and hey, any place that actually has a condiment table with a variety of hot sauces from which to choose is pretty great in my book.
