Went to First Watch to celebrate a friends birthday, who happened to have a coupon for get free meal because she is a member of their Sunny Club. Our sever was not too attentive, perhaps because we are not regulars, or three older ladies, but there is room for improvement . I asked for sweetener for my tea, waited so... More

However I ordered real maple syrup without a disclosure of added cost. Also me and my client felt rushed. We were chatting after our meal, the waitress kept coming by until she heard us discuss the fact we were rushed. The gentleman that seats folks was also hawking our plates.

We have had great experiences at other FirstWatch locations but our visits here have been consistently wrong. Orders not right, undercooked (raw) potatoes, burnt English muffins then under toasted muffins that were cold. Missing items and long wait times for corrections. Cold food. Very disappointing.

The menu is so pleasing to the eyes and the food surpasses the description. The choices are unique and most items I've never even seen on a menu. Our waitress was so refreshing and happy and I could tell she enjoyed being there. I'm not one to go out for breakfast but First Watch may be the exception for me.

This is a wonderful spot for breakfast (and lunch).. They get you in and out quickly but you never feel rushed. The service is friendly and efficient, always someone o fill your coffee or refill the ice water pitcher on the table. The food comes out piping hot and always fresh. The prices are excellent, too.

A more upmarket American breakfast chain. Great selection on the menu, although not a huge choice of healthy options. I opted for the Crepe which was covered with strawberry yoghurt and fresh fruit, which came with a side portion of granola and a choice of muffin. My husband had the Banana and granola pancakes which also came with a muffin.... More

2 locations, one on McGregor and one on 41. Although the menus are the same, we have found the one on McGregor to be consistently better, but only by a small margin. They only serve breakfast and lunch, and we always go for breakfast. No restaurant we have found locally is as good for breakfast. Good quality, reasonably fast service.... More

I love going to this restaurant. The Chickichangas are the best . It's fresh and healthy menu is a nice change from the everyday.the wait can be a little long sometimes but I think it is worth it. We were lucky today. Got right in. This is a chain but it is worth the visit.

We met here often with friends for their extra crispy waffles and it's always a treat. They have a great diverse menu and lots of regular repeat customers. Staff is friendly, service is prompt and food is excellent.
