ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) Roanoke's newest restaurant opens next week with a fresh take on breakfast and lunch.

First Watch is located in the Ivy Market Center near Earth Fare and Mellow Mushroom.

The restaurant will employ about 25 people, who are now training for Monday's opening.

Les Phelps is the restaurant's owner and operator.

"I'm really excited about this development here, with Earth Fare and Carilion on the other side of us," Phelps told WDBJ7. "I have no worries that this store will do very well."

The restaurant will offer traditional favorites and many healthier options for breakfast, brunch and lunch.

First Watch will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
