Annex's Woodbury neighborhood, located on the south side of the fictional port city of Harborview, OR, was inspired by Portland's historic Sellwood, especially the 13th Avenue commercial district.
Freddie and Vi's tea shop, located on Woodbury's commercial avenue, was derived from any number of long-vanished coffee houses and tea shops found in early twentieth-century Portland. Their tea shop first appears in Season 2, Episode 1 ("Temperatures Rising").
To experience such Annex settings in 2019 Portland, visit Sellwood's Blue Kangaroo Coffee Roasters (7901 SE 13th Ave.) or Grand Central Bakery (7987 SE 13th Ave.).
