13 Dec Annica’s: a hidden gem in the heart of Ferndale
An associate – with whom I had had business dealings with in the past – contacted me on Facebook about 10 days ago asking if I would be interested in collaborating with him on a new business venture. Knowing him to be an innovative thinker and always full of intriguing ideas, I said that I would love to meet him to see what he had up his sleeve…
He suggested that we meet at Annica’s in Ferndale so I plugged the coordinates into my GPS and I started to drive.
Expecting the coffee shop to be in a shopping centre, I was surprised when the friendly sounding lady on my GPS informed me that I had reached my destination – outside an ordinary-looking house as well as a car dealership.
It took me a couple of turns around the block to realise that Annica’s is actually situated in what looks like a bog-ordinary, suburban-looking house. A bit sceptical about what I’d find inside, I parked my car and ventured in.
What a pleasant surprise!
You walk into Annica’s through a beautiful garden that is kitted out with playground equipment so that moms and dads can enjoy their meals safe in the knowledge that their children are safe.
The décor is a cross between vintage and modern with stunning antique-looking furniture combined with high ceilings and large windows that let massive amounts of light in.
Annica’s is another restaurant that is banting friendly although their cakes are enough to make even the most die-hard of banters slip up! I had the Cobb Salad, which I’ve posted as the featured image of this article.
Service is good and their prices are not bad at all. So will I go back to try the cake? I think that I’ll need to do a LOT more cardio sessions before I decide…
