What Do You Order at Anna’s House?

In addition to offering gluten free options, I love that they offer pork free sausage! I’ve had their pancakes, breakfast lasagna, sweet potato breakfast hash, and have loved all of it. And of course, I love being able to order gluten free cinnamon rolls at their restaurant. 

An Interview with Anna’s House Staff

I have visited multiple Anna’s House locations over the years. Howeverm I’ve never had the chance to ask management about their gluten free philosophy. Recently, I was able to connect with Tim Fatum, who is the Business Practices Director for Anna’s House restaurants. I’m sharing his direct answers with you, so my followers can learn more about how Anna’s House serves their gluten free guests. 

Why Did Anna’s House Choose to Offer Gluten Free Options? 

A few years after purchasing the first Anna’s House in 2003, owner Josh Beckett began to experience some health issues. In an attempt to improve his health, Josh and his wife Erin started to focus on new dietary options. At that time, the restaurant he owned offered very few choices that would allow him to eat there. From that point forward, Anna’s House has tried to offer many options for a variety of dietary needs, including gluten free.

What Steps Does Anna’s House Take to Prevent Cross Contact? 

Anna’s House is not a 100% gluten restaurant. They do, however, have a dedicated gluten free prep space, to prevent cross contact. They educate staff how to prepare these items which includes handwashing, changing gloves, and utilizing dedicated utensils in a gluten free station. In addition, they train staff in food allergy prep, before they are allowed to cook gluten free orders.

How Are Gluten Free Orders Served to Gluten Free Guests? 

Gluten free orders include a wooden pick that states “allergy.” *NOTE- When I ordered take out, there was no pick in my order, nor was there anything that identified that my order was gluten free. I don’t know if that was an oversight (it was Mother’s Day and MSU Graduation), or if to-go orders aren’t marked as Gluten Free. Make sure to talk to staff when you pick up your takeout order.

  1. I was crushed when they closed the location on Northwestern Hwy I’m Farmington Hills. I presumed Covid killed them since their business was a dine in model. Glad to hear their other locations are doing well.
