Eureka Springs restaurant feature:

Mud Street Cafe Annex

Are you in the mood for a burger? How about some huge, fluffy pancakes or a scoop of delectable chicken salad? Mud Street Cafe Annex has all that and more, serving breakfast all day long with more standard fare for lunch, and it’s located right in the heart of downtown Eureka Springs. The Annex is the sister restaurant of Mud Street Cafe, one of the most popular eateries for locals and tourists alike.

Excellent diner fare and atmosphere

The Annex has incredible food, but that’s not its only feature. The decor is relaxed and comfortable, the walls adorned with an eclectic mix of beautiful works by Eureka Springs artists. The art includes everything from woodwork to paintings to a lighted planter. You can dine on benches or in chairs, or even by the window overlooking the busy downtown area.

The Annex features a section of the floor covered in tempered glass, allowing visitors to look down and see the spring that runs 20 feet below. The stream is lit from below so you can really see what’s going on down there. It’s relaxing and fascinating, and you won’t find anything else like it in Eureka Springs or anywhere else.

You can walk right into the Annex. Unlike Mud Street Cafe, the Annex is located at street level. That means it’s accessible for all. We think it’s the perfect place to eat in town. When you stop in, be sure to order at least one pancake. The pancakes are the most popular item in the restaurant. They are big, light and fluffy … the perfect companion to some scrambled eggs and a few slices of bacon.

Mud Street Cafe isn’t too far from the Annex. It’s just a short walk to your right and down the stairs. Both locations have a mouthwatering selection of muffins, cake and pies. We’re partial to the peanut butter pie but you can’t go wrong no matter what you get. The coffee is out of this world, featuring all kinds of different blends. We love to start our meal at Mud Street Cafe with a cup of hot chocolate, created with the best syrup you can imagine. It’s topped with a healthy amount of whipped cream, because hot chocolate is never complete without that.

Other items we love include the veggie grits, breakfast croissant, any omelet, bacon cheeseburger, chicken salad croissant sandwich and really any other croissant sandwich available. No matter what you order, we’re sure you’ll like it.

And, of course, don’t hesitate to take a muffin or two home with you when you leave.
