The restaurant will open Friday off Bandera Road

SAN ANTONIO – October 18, 2017 – First Watch Restaurants, the award-winning breakfast, brunch and lunch concept that opened its fourth San Antonio eatery in September, today announced it will open the doors to its fifth area restaurant this Friday, October 20. The new First Watch will open at 7 a.m. at 9110 N Loop 1604 West, in a space that formerly operated as The Egg & I. It will employ about 25 people. The restaurant has plans to open one more First Watch restaurant in San Antonio before the end of 2017.

Customers of the restaurant will be able to enjoy 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.

“San Antonio has proven to be an ideal market for First Watch, and it’s a city that we look forward to calling home for a long time,” said Chris Tomasso, president of First Watch.

First Watch’s curated menu takes an elevated approach to traditional and innovative offerings made to order using farm fresh ingredients. It includes crave-able items such as Avocado Toast, Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, Farm Stand Breakfast Tacos and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes. The new restaurant offers 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. First Watch in San Antonio offers options from the restaurant’s Fresh Juice Bar – including the best-selling Kale Tonic – juiced in-house daily using only the highest quality fruits and vegetables.

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
