Change is in the air – from fall to spring, the seasons are changing and so is the seasonal menu at First Watch.

First Watch, the popular daytime café serving breakfast, brunch and lunch daily from 7am – 2:30pm has officially released their new seasonal menu and we were invited to experience and savor their spring flavors.

New on the spring menu are the following yummy items:

1. Shrimp & Grits

Their take on this Lowcountry classic features sautéed shrimp and Cajun andouille sausage reduced with chicken stock, house-roasted tomatoes, onions, green peppers and scallions, and served over Bob’s Red Mill Cheddar Parmesan cheese grits, with artisan ciabatta toast.

2. Pork Carnitas Omelet

Savory pork carnitas, house-roasted onions, fresh avocado, Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. Topped with tomatillo hollandaise, chive cream, Cotija cheese, pico de gallo and fresh cilantro. Served with a side of black beans.

3. Loaded Smoked Salmon Bagel

A toasted NY everything bagel (made in da’ Bronx) topped with scallion cream cheese, sliced cucumber, tomato, Wild Alaska Smoked Sockeye Salmon, house-pickled red onions and lemon dressed arugula. Served with a side of fresh fruit.

4. Golden Glow Juice

Pineapple, turmeric, orange, coconut water and lemon.

Also pictured:
(M) Kale Tonic – Kale, Fuji apple, cucumber and lemon.
(R) Morning Meditation – Orange, lemon, turmeric, organic ginger, agave nectar and beet.

My favorite was the Loaded Smoked Salmon Bagel!  The toasted NY everything bagel (made in da’ Bronx) was perfection and the smoked salmon topped with scallion cream cheese, sliced cucumber, tomato, Wild Alaska Smoked Sockeye Salmon, house-pickled red onions and lemon dressed arugula took everything to the next level.  Each bite was delicious and bursting with flavor!

Of course, there are still old favorites on the menu available for take out or dine in at First Watch, including:

Tri-Fecta
