First Watch’s curated menu takes an elevated approach to traditional and inventive offerings made to order using farm fresh ingredients. The new restaurant in the Shops at Ellis Preserve will offer healthy, flavorful favorites like house-made granola and pico de gallo, organic greens, house-roasted vegetables, cage-free eggs and 100% fresh-squeezed orange juice as well as more indulgent, traditional breakfast, brunch and lunch offerings. The new First Watch in Austin will also serve its exclusive Sunrise Select Premium Blend Coffee, made from slow-roasted, hand-selected, high-grown coffee beans from mountains across North, Central and South America, by the pot.

The award-winning café opened its first Philadelphia-area restaurants in 2016 and currently operates locations in both Wynnewood and Villanova. The new First Watch will open with the restaurant’s latest interior design, which combines farm fresh elements with a high-energy, urban vibe.

First Watch serves its entire menu seven days a week from 7 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The restaurant also offers customers complimentary newspapers and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
