COMING SOON: First Watch

Sometimes it’s only the thought of breakfast that is able to pull us from the cozy clutches of sleep. “Daytime Cafe” First Watch, a chain founded in Pacific Grove, California, in 1983, is opening in Indianapolis in mid-April at 3309 E. 86th St., with a full line of breakfast and lunch options. Meals worth waking up for include eggs, pancakes, yogurt parfaits, homemade French toast, and signature items such as eggs rolled inside thin crepes. The menu includes a number of gluten-free, low-fat, and/or low-carb foods, and diners can pour their morning cup of Joe from personal pots. The eatery will remain open through the afternoon, with a lunch menu of salads, soups, and sandwiches, such as the Not Guilty Your Honor wrap of spinach, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, tomato, cucumber, and feta tossed together, folded into a wheat tortilla, and served with a side of hummus.
