Anna's House is a retro [1960's] restaurant, that until recently only had locations on the western side of the state. There are now two on the westside of Detroit [still waiting for one east of Detroit]. With the tea trip behind us, my friend Linda and I finally got a date on the calendar to spend together. She's always in Florida for her birthday [March], so it was time for a long overdue celebration.
She said I'd love Anna's House, so I drove to her side of town. She was right - Anna's didn't disappoint.

The foyer and restaurant will take you down memory lane. So many things reminded me of my mother's kitchen including the restaurant's interior colors of turquoise and white.

Waiting area with numerous retro chairs. Remember those metal porch chairs?
Look at all the teapots on display!
An assortment of toasters.
Our cute server. I didn't take pictures of the food, but Linda ordered breakfast and I ordered a burger with olive/mayo dressing and sweet potato fries. It was good.
Half of the restaurant is booths and the other half is counter/soda fountain. So fun!
We made a day of it going hither, thither and yon on her side of town. Say it isn't so!! Carson's Department Store [Carson Pirie Scott & Co.] is closing it's doors after being in business since 1854. Another department store succumbs!
I didn't make any purchases, but Linda found a pair of shoes. Things were pretty picked over, and the air-conditioning was off, so it wasn't conducive to shopping. I felt sorry for the sales clerks who had to work in the heat.
She also gave me some herbal tea she brought back from Mexico.
And a Susan Winget teapot rug.
It's been a long time since I've had a rug in front of my sink. I used to have a braided rug there with matching ones in front of the refrigerator and stove, but once I got rid of my country décor they didn't look right. Linda told me she purchased the teacup rug at Tuesday Morning, so as soon as I got home I went to the Tuesday Morning store near me and bought their last two. I did a happy dance all the way home!
It was a fun day!
