First Watch will open Friday
First Watch Restaurants, an award-winning breakfast, brunch and lunch concept, today announced it will open the doors to its second San Antonio restaurant this Friday, August 18. The new restaurant will open at 7 a.m. at 700 East Sonterra Blvd. in a space that formerly operated as The Egg & I and will employ about 25 people. The daytime café first opened in San Antonio earlier this summer.
Customers of the restaurant will be able to sample the eatery’s innovative menu, including popular dishes like Quinoa Power Bowls, Avocado Toast and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and options from the Fresh Juice Bar, which are juiced in-house daily using high quality fruits and vegetables.
“The opportunity to bring First Watch to such a lively city full of history and culture was too exciting to pass up, and we couldn’t be more pleased by the response from our neighbors here since we first opened in San Antonio in June,” said Chris Tomasso, president of First Watch. “It really is an honor to introduce our creative breakfast, brunch and lunch menu to another great neighborhood 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, in addition to San Antonio, currently operates locations in 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.
