Loyal Loot designer Anna Thomas knows theres plenty to love in Edmontons burgeoning downtown.
Anna Thomas may have had her work exhibited all over the world in her role as a founder and designer of Loyal Loot (Paris, Stockholm, New York and beyond) but she continues to call Edmonton home, while partner Doha Lindskoog helps run the show from Calgary. From her downtown studio, Thomas manages the ever-growing popularity of the collective’s highly coveted log bowls and dreams up new smart and simple home goodies. And when work is done for the day, she heads out to explore all the area has to offer.
When I can, I love seeing the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra in concert at the Winspear Centre. It’s a beautiful sound in a classically beautiful space.

Rostizado is a Mexican rotisserie and a fun, upbeat place to eat with your friends. I love the tamarind margaritas.
My favourite thing to order at Lock Stock Coffee is either a savoury biscuit or tartine. The interesting combinations of ingredients keep me coming back. Recently, they had a cinnamon biscuit with an orange honey glaze.
The Citadel Theatre building has a waterfall and plant atrium that I often take a break in during the day, especially in the cold winter months. One of the city’s gems.
Everything is good at Corso 32—no wonder it’s my favourite restaurant. I like to start with the short rib and have panna cotta for dessert.
