The daytime café will open Monday just east of Interstate 79
First Watch Restaurants, the popular breakfast, brunch and lunch concept, today announced it will open the doors to its newest Pittsburgh-area restaurant on Monday, July 25. The new restaurant will open at 7 a.m. at 160 Millers Run Road, just off of I- 79 in Bridgeville. The new 3,500-square-foot restaurant will be the 33-year-old company’s fourth First Watch in the Pittsburgh area and will employ about 25 people.
“In the past year, we’ve really focused on both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia as growth hubs for First Watch, with openings in McCandless as well as in Wynnewood and Villanova just outside of Philadelphia,” said Chris Tomasso, president of First Watch, of the company’s recent Pennsylvania expansion. “Bridgeville is a ripe with beautiful neighborhoods full of growing families and young professionals, and it only seemed natural to introduce our fresh take on breakfast, brunch and lunch with the community here.”
First Watch’s curated menu takes an elevated approach to traditional and inventive offerings made to order using farm fresh ingredients. It includes items such as Avocado Toast, Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, Farm Stand Breakfast Tacos and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes. The new restaurant on Millers Run Road 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 Bridgeville will also offer options from the restaurant’s Fresh Juice Bar, juiced in-house daily using fresh fruits and vegetables sourced locally whenever possible. The restaurant will 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 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.
