First Watch – Tampa, FL


Lance’s birthday is this weekend.  Since he’s on the email list for First Watch, he got sent a coupon for a free birthday entrée! Until recently, I didn’t realize it was a chain outside of Tampa – apparently they have over 100 locations around the country. 

Lance started off with his normal black coffee, and I tried their Day Glow juice – made from carrot, orange, lemon, and organic ginger.  The juice was really refreshing and tasted very fresh.  It wasn’t super sweet like orange juice – the tartness from the lemon along with the carrot and ginger was a great balance. 

I love their different pancake varieties (I wrote about them back when I posted about First Watch in July…)  Instead I decided to try one of their specials – the Smoked Salmon Benedict. It had two poached eggs on Ciabatta, topped with the salmon, tomato, hollandaise, red onion, and herbs.  It came with a side of greens in lemon white balsamic (so it was relatively healthy for a Benedict breakfast…)

Lance had the Chickichanga – a Mexican style egg dish.  It had whipped eggs with spicy chicken, chorizo, green chilies, cheeses, onion, and avocado in a tortilla topped with Vera Cruz sauce and sour cream.  It came with a side of fruit and potatoes.   The fruit wasn’t anything special, but the egg dish was excellent!

If you haven’t already, sign up for their email list because it’s well worth it to get the free birthday meal! 

First Watch has several locations – we went to the one at 3712 Henderson Blvd
Tampa, FL 33609 which is open from 7am – 2:30pm every day.
