New Opening: First Watch Cafe


They had me at açaí bowls. First Watch Cafe just recently opened up a location here in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. They are a breakfast + lunch spot with such a wide variety of options to choose from. I used to visit Rico’s Açaí daily when I lived in Charlotte, so when I saw they served bowls at First Watch, I had to give it a try. They use the same açaí brand as Rico’s too! I’m in love and already told them you’ll be seeing a lot of me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I had the Kale Tonic Fresh Juice, and it’s not all kale tasting. The apple really powers through and I taste more of than that anything else and I’m not complaining. The selection of healthy options are impressive. The a.m. superfoods bowl and power wrap are both delicious as well. 


The location is super chic and plenty of seating. The atmosphere is very welcoming and super friendly. The staff has plenty of knowledge to provide you if you have any questions. Coming from a background in the restaurant, I pay attention to how things operate more than the average eyes. I must say they know what they are doing to have only been open a week. Some restaurants just throw up their restaurant without proper training. They have Winston decor and it’s a wood furniture themed location, which I love.
