Honestly, I could eat breakfast foods most of the day
The place to go for breakfast, at least in the west part of Michigan, is Anna’s House. They have four different locations including Alpine, 28th Street, Holland, and Grandville. They are open 6am-3pm most days, barring holidays. The atmosphere is a pleasant splash of bright green and aqua, with a mixture of patterns and fixtures giving it an old-fashioned diner feel.
Their best feature is the diverse menu that caters to a variety of dietary options.
They have vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free options. They are friendly and willing to work with you to customize your plate so that you may get exactly what you want.
My personal favorite that I go back to again and again is their Corned Beef Benny, a twist on the classic eggs benedict with an English muffin topped with corn beef, poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce. Today I opted for the potato pancakes with crumbled goat cheese, green onions, and an apple cider reduction. Delicious!
Another fun option is their coffee cup exchange. If you bring in a coffee cup to donate them, you will get a free cup of coffee. I don’t know about you, but I always have extra coffee cups hanging around my house. More cupboard space + free coffee, you really can’t go wrong.
My boyfriend and I have turned it into a fun game where every time we go we bring a unique cup that we find earlier in the week, and then try to see if any other table has one that we’ve brought in previously.
So if you are ever in the Grand Rapids area, check them out, tell me your favorite meal there, or let me know your favorite breakfast nook that I should visit. Anna’s House
