Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and the Main Line area will soon welcome some new options for savory morning bites.
In addition to Zavino’s, Bryn and Dane’s and La Colombe debuting at Bryn Mawr Village (900 block of W. Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr), which is still under construction, Turning Point, a breakfast, brunch and lunch spot out of New Jersey, is also headed to this culinary-centric multi-purpose center.
Turning Point’s menu includes an extensive drinks list featuring French-pressed coffees, an espresso bar, loose-leaf hot teas, smoothies, shakes and hot chocolates. Breakfast items include classics like French toast, waffles, pancakes, several varieties of eggs Benedict and egg skillet dishes. For lunch, expect standard fare like soups, salads and sandwiches. Turning Point also features a kids’ menu and options for gluten-sensitive guests.
The 100-seat Bryn Mawr location is expected to open in August and will have outdoor seating in the warmer months.

Wynnewood will also welcome a new breakfast spot with the addition of First Watch at 1 E. Wynnewood Ave., opening on Monday, March 7. First Watch started in Florida and currently operates 135 locations in 25 states. This is First Watch’s first foray into the Philadelphia market.
The restaurant espouses a scratch-made philosophy and serves cage-free eggs, fresh roasted vegetables, handmade granola and sources produce locally whenever possible. Everything is made to order and the restaurant does not use heat lamps, microwaves or deep fryers. This new spot is perfect for guests who like to linger, as they’ll be offered not just a cup of coffee, but their own pot, as well as complimentary newspapers and WiFi access.
Wynnewood won’t be the only location for First Watch. The restaurant is also expected to head to the new Villanova Center (775 Lancaster Ave., Villanova), though an opening date has yet to be announced.
