Checking Out the Seasonal Fall Menu at First Watch #firstwatch #fallflavors #breakfastandbrunch

First Watch restaurant recently unveiled its seasonal Fall menu items. I recently had a chance to stop by my neighborhood First Watch location to try a few of these special, limited edition menu items. If you've never eaten at First Watch before, they feature a Daytime Dining concept that features a chef-driven menu of breakfast, brunch, and lunch items. I grabbed one of my team members for a relaxing weekday brunch. The Fall menu centers on warm and cozy Fall flavors like pumpkin, cinnamon, and flavorful hearty entrees. We started our meal with a duo of beverages -- a flavorful iced coffee and a fruit-forward cocktail. The Honey Caramel Crunch Iced Coffee was introduced this Summer...and was so popular that it's sticking around for Fall. It features a salted caramel drizzle and sweet honey-flavored coffee. It's topped with sweet cream cold foam and crunchy toffee crumbles. So good! 

We also tried a fruit-forward Pomegranate Sunrise -- which combined Camarena Tequila, tart pomegranate juice and fresh lime, and sweet agave nectar. The presentation of this cocktail was really fun too...cheers!

For our duo of entrees, we picked one savory...and one with a bit of sweetness. The Barbacoa Quesadilla Benedict was spicy goodness! It features two beef barbacoa quesadillas prepared quesa birria style. The cheesy quesadillas are topped with two cage-free eggs, Vera Cruz hollandaise sauce, spicy ranchero sauce, and sliced scallions. The dish is accompanied by seasoned black beans topped with house-made pico de gallo. This dish hearty and savory...perfect for sharing!

Our second entree was a Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast. The centerpiece of this plate was a large, fluffy spiced pumpkin pancake -- a quintessential taste of Fall. The spiced pumpkin pancake was paired with two sunny-side-up eggs and a savory Jones Dairy Farm chicken sausage patty.

This is a traditional breakfast combo that offers the perfect amount of seasonal Fall flavor. If you enjoy sweet and savory flavors together on one plate, this Pumpkin Pancake Breakfast is a perfect way to start your day! 

We ended our meal on a sweet note with First Watch's seasonal Cinnamon Spice Churros, which were served with a duo of dipping sauces on the side: Mexican Mocha and Salted Caramel. Crispy churros...flavored with warm cinnamon spice...and dipped into decadent sauces? What a fun final course!

If you want to try First Watch's seasonal Fall offerings, you need to act quickly -- because these are limited-time-only menu items. To find a First Watch location near you, check out their handy searchable online Location Finder.
