It’s Official: Meet Our Café Partner, ANEU!

The Alliance is pleased to announce its partnership with Meridith Coyle to bring ANEU to Valley Forge National Historical Park. You heard that right— a café is coming to the Maurice Stephens House!

Our adaptive reuse project, slated to open in fall 2023, will house our headquarters, program and public space, and another location for one of the Main Line’s beloved ANEU cafés.

The café will feature its signature clean, healthy ingredients and homemade comfort food. “As an entrepreneur for 30 years, I feel like this is what I’m meant to do,” Meridith said. “The Alliance is the greatest group helping to preserve this treasure in our backyard, and we look forward to being a part of the fun.”
