I like a late breakfast. They treat you right. My wife loves this place. They know what they are doing. Order just one pancake as they are pretty big.

Always good food and service, but the recipes can get a little exotic. Certainly good value and a comfortable "family & friends" experience.

You'll almost always have to wait for a table on the weekends, but I have no problem doing that, as they offer a first rate breakfast (and lunch). The menu emphasizes healthy options and they rotate many creative specials.

It was evident that they were well prepared for the Mother's Day crowd: welcoming smiles, organized wait list, efficient kitchen staff, & great manager supervision! The food was delicious & the Mother's Day box of chocolates was a nice touch!

When we are in Fort Myers we often go to the downtown First Watch. The menu has plenty of choices to suit everyone, even the health conscious people in the crowd. Omelletes are fresh and easily large enough to take half home. They allow substitution of fresh fruit for the carb sides, amd their marble rye toast is excellent. They... More
