First Watch is your daytime café for breakfast, brunch and lunch, serving up a fresh, health and delicious menu for everyone. From cage-free eggs and omelets, fluffy, plate sized pancakes to fresh salads and mouth-watering sandwiches. They have options for the healthy conscious diners, to those needing a heartier meal.
We checked out their new Season’s Eatings menu and here are some of our favorites we recommend. The A.M. Superfoods Bowl made with coconut milk chia seed pudding, topped with bananas, berries, blackberry preserves and house-made granola. Did you know chia seeds are full of fiber, omega-3s and protein? The little seeds are delicious and packed full of healthy benefits. This was paired with whole grain artisan toast topped with almond butter and Maldon sea salt. The creamy sweet almond butter with the salt was a perfect pairing we would never have thought to try.
First Watch is also known for their fresh juice bar serving up options such as Kale Tonic, Day Glow and their seasonal Morning Meditation. Our favorite was the Day Glow, made with carrots, oranges, lemon and organic ginger.
The next dish was the Pot Roast Hash, a combination of slow-roasted beef Pot Hash in a rich Demi-Glace sauce with house-roasted shallots and peppers on seasoned potatoes. On top of all the meaty goodness were two fresh eggs that can be served any style. This dish was a delicious medley of a favorite dinner dish and breakfast combo. It was a hearty dish, without being too heavy and was packed full of flavor.
One of First Watch’s menu favorites is their Avocado Toast, and we knew our visit wouldn’t be complete without trying. Served on thick cut whole grain bread, topped with fresh smashed avocados, extra virgin olive oil, lemon and Maldon sea salt. We love avocados, and this avocado toast was so satisfyingly delicious. The flavors the salt and lemon brought out in the avocados made us want to eat this every day!
No menu, or breakfast is complete without some options of some sweet and decadent dishes. Our sweet tooth was completely satisfied with the Cinnamon Chip Pancakes. Plate sized pancakes served with two eggs, any style, and your choice of bacon, turkey sausage or sausage links.
First Watch has such a wide range on their menu, and each dish we sampled was full of flavor. You can count this as one of our top spots, because we know everyone can find something to fulfill their empty stomachs and appetites. You can taste the pride they put in the food.
