Fresh Ideas Market Cafe Opens in Berwyn


For 25 years, Main Line chef Meridith McLoughlin has elevated the local food scene through varying degrees of fresh, flavor-packed and from-scratch cuisine. From debuting a handful restaurants (Meridith’s, Aneu, Binni & Flynn’s) to delivering spot-on seasonal dishes to your door and for events (Aneu Catering), this Berwyn native continues to expand her brand, this time with the new Fresh Ideas Market

The breakfast, lunch and take-out cafe comes to Lancaster Avenue as a walk-in branch of McLoughlin’s Aneu Catering. Specializing in a organic, locally-sourced, seasonal menu, grab a seat to devour bright salads like mango and chicken, vegan broccoli slaw, black bean and corn salsa, or stop in to collect a meal for your office or snacks for your upcoming soiree. Daily, the chef and her team stock their cafe’s case with an eclectic mix of vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and sustainable meat-based options that will send any food lover’s heart aflutter. Even better, there are made-to-order selections like breakfast sandwiches, waffles, frittatas, wraps and paninis.

Locals who have been biting their way through Meridith’s Main Line restaurants may also recognize crowd-pleasers on hand like the Aneu Chicken (sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, truffle cream sauce) or several Binni & Flynn’s staples (tacos, enchiladas, arroz rojo). Don’t forget to save room for pastry chef Ann Monaghan’s elegant sweet treats. She’s stocking the dessert case with morsels like bananas Foster-topped carrot cake, chocolate-stuffed croissants, coconut macaroons and vanilla-glazed cronuts.

The best deal of Fresh Ideas? The house dinner special. Swing by post-work and grab a refined supper to-go for you and your family of four. For only $40, you have your pick of an entree, salad, side dish and dessert for the whole clan.
