This is my favorite spot for breakfast. I usually do eggs benedict, but this time had the Tri-fecta . . . you cannot go wrong with either one . . . and fresh OJ!

Great place for breakfast or lunch...closes around 2:00pm....no dinners. Good service and good food. Sometimes there is a line to get in and a wait to be seated...depends on the time of year, BUT it's well worth it. Yes, parking can be a problem not a lot of places to park. It's in a shopping plaza. Still it's the best... More

Blueberry pancakes were fluffy, tasty, and huge. Forget IHOP and PERKINS. I will be back here for my pancakes. The fruit filled crepe was awesome. The waitress was outstanding. They must train them to be polite. Thank you.

Have eaten here many times. The service is usually fast and friendly and the food is consistently excellent. This last visit I ordered 2 blueberry pancakes (they are huge so depending on appetite, you may only need one) and a side of bacon and my guest had one of the egg specials. They came out quick, were hot & fresh,... More

We were a party of 7 on Sunday morning around 11:00 am. Waited about 45 minutes to be seated. Got in and waitress was right on the scene without delay. Ordered food and didn't wait long to eat. Everybody in our group had good food. Be advised that parking can be a little tight as the lot was very full... More

It was a busy morning but we only had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Our waitress was topnotch and provided wonderful service. The pancakes were warm and delicious. You will need to have a healthly appetite to finish two of them.

I have eaten at several of these. Not your typical breakfast place. We went out of our way to eat here. Pretty crowded, but only waited about 15 minutes. There are so many things to choose from. I had a the Parma hash and it was outstanding. Never a bad meal at First Watch

Good selection of excellent meals. We regard this as the best breakfast in town, but they do have a lunch menu as well. Can be crowded, as we are not the only people who like this place. Go as early as you can on weekends, and expect a wait on Sunday mornings.
