Had a quick breakfast and felt like we ate healthy at the same time! The Avocado Toast offered two poached eggs which we slid under the chunky avocado spread on top of multi grain Texas toast. We then added strips of bacon to create one killer (and filling!) breakfast. We had to order one blueberry pancake on the side, as... More

Great selection of healthy breakfast and lunch options. Had the Baconada omelette which had a lot of avocado and bacon inside. Upgraded to egg whites at no additional charge. The Kale Tonic juice is excellent and refreshing as well.

It was a good solid breakfast. I had a skillet dish that was tasty. The juice was fresh, which is nice. You can always tell when it isn't out of the bottle.Service could have been better, but that is my only complaint.

I'm not a big breakfast eater so it really surprised me how indecisive I was with the breakfast selections at First Watch - I didn't know what to pick since everything seemed some yummy! Their offerings go from light, organic, to classic dishes and combinations, to innovative, hearty concoctions. My food was delicious and everyone around seemed pleased with theirs... More

Have never been disapointed in the breakfast, especially like the mushroom dish (caps & something - don't remember exact name)..

I took my whole family today and it was delicious. The menu has a lot of healthy choices and it will a favorite restaurant for my family. We ate several things on the menu and too many to mention. There were no complaints and the wife and I did a taste test on every item we ordered. Really good meal.

We have eaten at a number of First Watch locations and find their food to be very good. For this reason, we drove out of our way to go to the Orlando location. First it was very difficult to find even with our Nav system in the shopping center it is located in. I had to call the restaurant three... More
