Wish these were up north

We went here three times and ate twice due to a long wait on Sunday. Ther is usually a wait during snow-bird season. I love the healthy menu and "Day Glow" juice drink.

We arrived and were sat quickly. Immediately Suzy our server greeted us and led us along a well needed culinary journey to replenish what was drained from us the night before. Coffee was great Day glow was a refreshing blend of carrot ginger and lemon Avocado toast with tons of avocado Super kale salad and a bacodo omelet Thanks Suzy... More

Breakfast has always been good so we stopped for lunch. There was a fairly long wait but everything went well once we were seated. Sandwiches and salads are all reasonable and good.

Had breakfast here again and First Watch still delivers. This time I didn't go healthy and instead had one of the hash platters. Eggs were properly cooked and hash was perfect. Great start to the day and meeting! Good place to take the staff for a small team-building breakfast or to just have a small meeting.

Not up to the reviews food was good but not great. My wife and I both had omelettes mine the Bacado was good, my wife had the Acapulco express was average at best. Very nice bowl of fruit. Was busy took a long time to be seated, with that kind of wait was hoping for more.
