Popular Brunch Spot to Open Third San Antonio RestaurantFirst Watch Restaurants, an award-winning breakfast, brunch and lunch concept, today announced it will open the doors to its newest San Antonio restaurant this Saturday, September 9. The new restaurant will open at 7 a.m. at 8603 State Highway 151, in a space that formerly operated as The Egg & I. It will employ about 25 people.

Customers of the restaurant will be among the first to sample the eatery’s innovative menu, including popular dishes like Quinoa Power Bowls, Avocado Toast, Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and options from the Fresh Juice Bar, which are juiced in-house daily using high quality fruits and vegetables.

“When we first opened in Texas last year, we couldn’t have anticipated the fantastic warm welcome and great feedback we’ve seen so far,” said Chris Tomasso, president of First Watch. “It really is an honor to bring our creative breakfast, brunch and lunch menu to another restaurant in Alamo City.”

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 San Antonio 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 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 Texas restaurants in 2016 and currently operates locations in San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, College Station and Houston. 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.
