In 1983, Ken Pendery and John Sullivan opened the first location in Pacific Grove, California but moved their business to Bradenton three years later. The restaurant was named after the nautical term denoting the day’s first shift as well as for its emphasis on breakfast, brunch and lunch items.
Today, the chain consists of 105 locations in 17 states across the United States. Freeman Spogli & Co., a private equity firm, owns the majority stake (85%) in the business, which was acquired from Catterton Partners in 2004.
What They’re Famous For
First Watch has, indeed, remain true to its dedication to offering its target market the best in breakfast, brunch and lunch foods! The chain has been recognized with 0ver 200 awards in “Best Breakfast” and “Best Brunch”, as well as the best breakfast chain in terms of taste, value, service, and menu choices according to a Consumer Reports survey.
The breakfast foods, such as crepes and pancakes, eggs in various forms, and sandwiches, are as popular today as they were more than 30 years ago. The chain also doesn’t use heat lamps, microwaves and deep-fat fryers, thus, ensuring that the food items are made-to-order for each diner.
Why Eat Here
When a restaurant chain has been voted – and continue to bring in awards, for that matter – as best in breakfast, brunch and lunch in Southeast Florida and in the rest of the United States, it’s doing things the right way! First Watch is the best place to enjoy delicious-to-the-last-bite foods during the daytime, usually until 2:30 in the afternoon.
The menu choices are as wide as regular patrons say these are so there’s always something new to look forward to each day. The American classic breakfast items are the most popular – after all, the comfort foods we grew up with provide familiar flavors and feelings amidst the often-confusing changes.
These include made-from-scratch muffins, French toast, and pancakes and crepes with savory and sweet fillings to satisfy all taste buds. The eggs Benedict come in various forms, such as Florentine style, so breakfasts with eggs become less boring and more adventurous. The bacons are fried to a golden crisp while the pot roast hash will make it to your Top 5 list, thanks to its yummy combo of hash, pot roast, toast and jam.
The menu isn’t just about the American classics, however, since there are plenty of creative items aside from the seasonal offerings. The signature items, such as the BLTE sandwich and the Chickichanga, are foods that aren’t available in most breakfast joints, yet another reason to come to First Watch first thing in the morning – or any time of the day you want to enjoy great food.
What’s a great breakfast without the healthy drinks? First Watch restaurants offer such a nice selection of fruit juices that you will likely discover new food-and-juice pairings every day. The choices range from the traditional orange juice to the more adventurous fruits-and-vegetables combos, such as apples and golden beets juice.
If you want to taste the more unconventional fresh juices, you can ask for a small sample. You can then decide whether your palate is up to it or not, not to mention that it’s a good way to discover new juice pairings.
According to the chain’s management, every item on the menu is made-to-order, which means that you’re getting pancakes, eggs and bacon that have been cooked juts before being served to your table. Your taste buds will immediately pick up on the freshness, warmth and flavors of the food, unlike in many chains where the foods are simple reheated in the microwave or kept warm under the heat lamps.
The Healthier Side menu items are geared toward diners who want healthier options, such as fresh fruit crepes, egg white omelets, and Power Wrap, a popular signature item. The “2 for You” lunch packages provide diners with half portions of the chain’s delectable salads, soups and sandwiches – and you can get them quickly, too, juts perfect for your lunch break.
Suffice it to say that the First Watch dining experience is something that you will want to enjoy again and again. The clean facilities, efficient waiter service, and casual ambiance complement the breakfast-at-home feel of each visit, too. The First Watch prices are reasonable enough to warrant multiple visits in a week, even with two or more people in tow.
