First Watch Introduces Seasonal Summer Menu Items -- Including Two New Iced Coffee Creations #firstwatch #icedcoffee #brunchdining #summermenu

First Watch recently unveiled its new seasonal Summer menu, and I had a chance to stop by my neighborhood location to try a few of the limited edition menu items. If you've never been to First Watch, it features a Daytime Dining concept with a chef-driven menu of breakfast, brunch, and lunch items. In addition to seasonal food items, First Watch has added two new specialty iced coffee drinks to its menu that are perfect for beating the Summer heat: 

  • Mint Mocha features a chocolate drizzle and peppermint coffee. This decadent drink is topped with a thick and sweet cream cold foam, Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips, and a mint garnish.
  • Honey Caramel Crunch features a salted caramel drizzle and sweet honey coffee. This iced coffee is also topped with the richly sweet cream cold foam and toffee crumbles.

Both of these iced coffee creations are deliciously sweet...and so refreshing! Best of all? Every weekday through August 11th, customers who dine in at any San Antonio First Watch location can enjoy a $2 iced coffee of their choice – including these two new flavors. That's an amazing deal!

While you're enjoying your gourmet iced coffee, it's a perfect opportunity to try out some of First Watch's new Summer menu items! We started out with the warm Bacon Cheddar Cornbread, topped with sweet honey butter. If you love cornbread, you will love this sweet-savory version!

Next up, we shared two savory breakfast items. First up was the Tex-Mex inspired Carnitas Breakfast Tostadas. This flavorful dish features hand-pulled pork carnitas, cheddar-jack cheese, black beans, and two eggs -- we chose over easy. Everything is arranged on top of crispy corn tostadas, then topped with white queso, sliced avocado, roasted corn salsa, house-pickled red onions, and cilantro. On the side is fresh fruit sprinkled with spicy Tajin seasoning.

This dish has a lot of fun flavors...and textures! It's savory, a little spicy, and the crunchy tostada shells add nice texture. We agreed that the tart pickled red onion perfectly brought all of the flavors together. This dish is definitely a must try!

Our second Summer menu item was the Lone Star Breakfast Hash. It has hand-pulled brisket and house-pickled sweet peppers in a crispy potato hash. The hash is then topped with two sunny-side-up eggs, cheddar-jack cheese, smashed avocado, fresh pico de gallo, chipotle aioli, and scallions. It's served with two wheat-corn tortillas to make breakfast tacos.

These breakfast tacos were so good! The tortillas were soft and warm, and the hash was a perfect combination of savory and spicy. It's a perfect Texas-inspired breakfast or brunch.

If you prefer your brunch dishes on the sweeter side, the Summer menu also includes a decadent Strawberry Tres Leche French Toast that looks and sounds amazing...mercy! First Watch has locations all across the country.
