A must breakfast spot!

We never miss a visit to First Watch for breakfast! When we are visiting Orlando we might even go multiple times. The food is top notch, they take my food allergies seriously, and the service is always good. There can be a longer wait on the weekends but the food is worth it. During the week... read more

Following a Trip Advisor recommendation, I went to breakfast on Tuesday and back again on Thursday. Was not disappointed either day. The staff is cordial, the food is good and the price is very agreeable. The added kick for me was the juice bar.

Found this restaurant on trip advisor and loved it so much that we went 4 times while on vacation. Avocado toast is outstanding. Omelets are fluffy and delicious. You must try the lemon ricotta pancakes. Just get an order for the table because I bet you've never had anything like these velvety pancakes. For lunch, salads, BLTs and Monterey were... More

Just minutes off International Drive, this place is superior to any on Int Drive. First Watch offers wholesome and delicious breakfast and lunch, excellent service and at a fair price.

We went here 4 times during our vacation. It's simply the best. They have the best breakfast made with the best ingredients. Clean, friendly service, and great food. We wish there was a first watch by us. Kids had pancakes, I would get the steel cut oatmeal, and my husband tried something new each time. They also have some really... More

I've traveled a pretty good amount, whether it's on vacation, for work, or just moving. While on vacation, I rarely go back to the same restaurant... actually, I don't know that I have EVER gone back to the same restaurant unless it was on a separate trip there. Well, First Watch forced me to go back for a 2nd breakfast,... More

Thanks for stopping in while you were in Orlando! We're so happy to hear that you loved breakfast at First Watch enough to come right back. The Bacado, Energy Bowl, Chickichanga and Farmhouse Hash are all fabulous choices! While we don't have any plans to open in South Dakota just yet, we are open in 18 states, so be sure... More

I went here with a large group (10 people). There was a long wait. We gave our name and they texted us. When we were called, they weren't ready, so we waited some more. Finally, they seated us. Food was great. Service was good. High pressure sale of a gift card. Because of the wait, we were given a $20... More
