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.

Three of us had a 4th of July breakfast before 15U baseball game. Mama got the special: BLT Benedict—fresh tomato slice, bacon, poached egg, topped with a vinegarette'd arugula and sliced avocado, in that order, piled up on a fresh ciabatta; Big Daddy had a lighter fare of English muffin, fresh fruit bowl & fresh squeezed OJ; son chowed on...

Today July 4th, 2014. My husband and I walked into this First Watch Location before getting on the road towards Palm Beach for vacation. We were quickly seated as soon as we walked in, I must mention we were nicely greeted by a joy filled voice coming from a young lady standing behind the hostess counter. Well everything went down...

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.

I was part of a group of friends who went here for brunch after church on Sunday. It was a lovely experience in every way. We had a wide variety of breakfast/brunch choices, and everyone at the table raved about the meals: eggs, bacon, ham, waffles, juice, toast etc. I wanted to try something different, so I ordered the Power...

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
