Have you ever had one of those moments where you suddenly notice a building? You’ve passed it hundreds of times, but suddenly something changes and you notice it for the first time?
That happened to me last summer. I was making my usual drive to the mall, when suddenly I noticed a building on the corner. It was cheery, bright, and had a large mural of a friendly-looking woman painted on the outside.
Anna’s House had just opened.
Well there’s definitely something special about it now.
I was intrigued and wanted to try out some of the food, because breakfast is my favorite meal. But the parking lot was always so packed, so I was intimidated.
Luckily, my dad takes me to breakfast every year for my birthday, so we decided to go there this year. It was a weekday at 8 a.m., so there wasn’t a crowd at all.
The inside of Anna’s House is a blogger’s dream. It’s decorated like a 50s beach house, which was a welcome site on the -15 degree February morning.
There are fun coat hooks at almost every table. They’re mint-colored and in the shape of cow heads.
I’ve now eaten at Anna’s House three times, and I’ve gotten a few different things every time.
I’ve had the French toast, cinnamon roll, American fries, and corned beef hash skillet.
The skillet was average. Some things are hard to mess up.
The dessert-style dishes, though. Wowza.
The French toast is seriously amazing. It’s perfectly soft, yet still has a crispy layer around the whole thing.
My new go-to meal is going to be the full order of French toast with a side of American fries, because I love potatoes.
Om nom nom.
And don’t forget the cinnamon roll.
I got one for free on my birthday, and I haven’t looked back since. Every time I go to Anna’s House, I get a cinnamon roll to go. Trust me, you’ll want it to go. Not only am I stuffed from the meal I just ate, but the cinnamon roll is also huge. Literally the size of a dinner plate.
And it’s got pumpkin cinnamon frosting. Yum.
The location I visit is the second one that’s opened, and they’re already working on a third. It’s clearly popular.
Have you been to Anna’s House before? Where’s your favorite place to eat breakfast?
