Turn Up the Heat This Summer With First Watch’s New Seasonal Menu Offerings

Available for a limited time alongside its full menu of breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes, First Watch brings zesty spice – and a little sweetness – to the table with new seasonal menu selections featuring premium proteins from Mexico

BRADENTON, Fla., June 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As summer returns with the warmth of brighter days, First Watch – the nation’s leading Daytime Dining concept – is inviting guests to embrace the heat with a new menu of seasonally inspired dishes brimming with flavor and zest. Boasting two flavorful takes on brunch classics that celebrate authentic Mexican proteins, share-worthy muffin top griddle cakes and a fresh juice packed with everyone’s summertime favorite, watermelon, this seasonal menu is sure to have the whole family dining and sipping on sunshine at their local First Watch this summer.

“Over the years, our customers have shown us their adventurous side in trying new ingredients and flavors, which is why I’m thrilled to give two of my personal favorite Mexican proteins – Chorizo and Barbacoa – the attention they deserve on this seasonal menu,” said Chef Shane Schaibly, Senior Vice President of Culinary Strategy at First Watch. “Each has a unique flavor that requires the right balance of acid and fat to truly shine, and brunch staples like eggs and cheese do just the trick as perfect counterparts. Of course, we also wanted to make sure guests had something sweet to enjoy, and treats like our Blueberry Muffin Top Griddle Cakes or the refreshing Watermelon Wake-Up beverage juice help round out this menu that’s guaranteed as fresh as the season.”

First Watch’s summer menu selections are available nationwide* through August 14th and include:

  • Barbacoa Quesadilla Benedict – Two barbacoa quesadillas prepared quesabirria-style, topped with poached cage-free eggs and covered with our Vera Cruz hollandaise, ranchero sauce and scallions. Served with seasoned black beans topped with housemade pico de gallo.
