First Watch Cafe Opens In Hollywood; Pre-Opening Event Proceeds to Benefit Joe DiMaggio Foundation


The restaurant is one of 12 planned First Watch openings in partnership with Daytime Café, LLC

First Watch, the breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurant with 14 locations in Southeast Florida, opened its new Hollywood restaurant on Monday, Feb. 12, at 7 a.m.  The new eatery is located at 3256 Hollywood Blvd. and will employ about 25 people. In conjunction with the First Watch opening, Miami-based franchise group Daytime Café, LLC will donate all money raised from a pre-opening event to the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Daytime Café, LLC currently owns and operates two First Watch restaurants as well as 32 Papa John’s restaurants in Southeast Florida.
