Popular breakfast restaurant Anna’s House adding Milford location
Anna’s house arrives in Milford.
The famous Michigan restaurant chain known for its breakfasts will open its 10e location in the former Hector & Jimmy’s building at the north end of the village early next year.
“When you look at Milford, it looks like a community that will support our brand, and we appreciate having this service as part of their community,” said Tim Fatum, Director of Business Practices for Anna’s House.
Fatum spoke by phone from Grand Rapids, where the restaurant that also serves breakfast opened in 2003. In 2005, it was purchased by Joshua Beckett, who opened a second location in Grand Rapids and in 2012, his restaurant was named Michigan’s Best Breakfast by MLive. . Over the past eight years, the chain has opened eight more restaurants, including those in Westland and Ann Arbor. A Farmington Hills site closed during the pandemic.
Anna’s House menu seeks to meet the dietary needs of a variety of diners, offering vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free options, as well as guiltier pleasures, or what Fatum calls “richer” dishes.

The menu includes dishes like the “famous breakfast lasagna,” an egg casserole topped with sliced tomatoes, fresh spinach and basil, sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms, turkey sausage and ricotta cheese, garnished with melted cheddar and homemade bechamel sauce; “Hippie Hash,” consisting of a variety of slow-roasted vegetables and roasted brown rice with fresh garlic and ginger, served over red-skinned potatoes and topped with Monterey Jack cheese and sour cream; and “Candied Pecans and Banana French Toast,” smothered in Mascarpone cheese and topped with a homemade rum-banana caramel sauce. New menu items are also added with the changing seasons.
Anna’s House, which also serves lunch, offers plenty of fresh home-cooked meals daily and also aims to provide all-natural local ingredients in every dish. All meats are also chemical free.
Decor is the same in all the restaurants, Fatum said, with a retro 1950s-1960s restaurant that’s bright and cheerful, with music from the era, booths, tables and a snack bar counter.
Fatum said the company likes to buy existing buildings and then redo them, and it will take Anna’s House a few months to renovate its new home at 780 N. Milford Road.
He expects the restaurant to open in the first quarter of 2023, employing around 50 people, and open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., seven days a week.
