Brunch at First Watch (St. Petersburg, FL)

Another nice sunny day on my Florida vacation. How to better start the day then with a nice brunch. This time I tried "First Watch" in St. Petersburg out. It is an American restaurant chain that focuses on breakfast and light lunch dishes. They have a nice outdoor seating area and surprisingly, I was the only one who wanted to sit outside. I had the entire area for myself, while it got more and more crowded and loud inside...

Why "First Watch"?

The name references to the first work shift aboard a ship as the restaurant is usually only open from 7am to 2:30pm. "First Watch" serves food from the crack of dawn :)

What's so special about them?

"First Watch" emphasize the freshness of their products. They do not use heat lamps or fryers. They serve fresh fruit and made to order dishes. While they offer the classic favorites such as eggs & bacon, omlettes and pancakes, they also serve healthy dishes including granola, yoghurt, superfood bowls, avocado bread, and more. They also have tasty seasonal specials and a juice bar :)

Breakfast Hash the way I like it :)

Well, I do like runny eggs over good breakfast potatoes, a good skillet hash. However, the potatoes need to be fresh and not re-heated and mushy. I do not like the shredded hash browns, they have to be the real potato cubes preferably fried with some vegetables and onions... So, I got the "Market Hash" and I was not disappointed. It was fresh, with lots of veggies, well seasoned and very tasty!
  • Seasoned freshly cooked potatoes with crimini mushrooms, zucchini, shallots, red peppers, baby spinach, melted mozzarella and herbed goat cheese.
  • Served with two eggs over easy that were still runny inside.
  • Along that, whole grain artisan toast and fresh fruit.
