BRADENTON, Fla., Aug. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Watch, the leading Daytime Dining concept with more than 445 restaurants nationwide, is inviting guests to say an early farewell to the scorching summer sun and embrace fall flavors with its new menu of seasonally inspired dishes. From returning favorites – like the crowd-pleasing Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast and hearty Butternut Squash Bisque – to an inventive take on a classic French breakfast staple and a fresh juice made with pomegranate and pear, First Watch is the perfect place to savor autumn’s iconic flavors.

“Here at First Watch, our approach to food follows the sun wherever it leads us, so each time fall rolls around with its emphasis on natural sweetness and rich spice, there’s plenty to explore, discover and savor again,” said Shane Schaibly, Senior Vice President of Culinary Strategy for First Watch. “For the season, we’ve taken brunch classics you’ve grown to love here stateside and abroad and elevated them with fresh, colorful ingredients – from sweet potatoes joining our corned beef hash to pear and pomegranate packing a bright punch in our newest juice. Whether you’re looking to try these hearty new flavors or nostalgic favorites like butternut squash, cinnamon streusel and, of course, pumpkin, we have something for everyone to spice up your season.”
