The best pancakes in town, huge so be careful not to other the usual three stack, one is actually enough. If you are going on a sunday be ready to wait for at least half an hour.

I stayed over at my aunt's place. Then one morning we decided to have breakfast here. I have heard about this place before and never got a chance to actually go here so I was really excited to see what they serve here. The location was a bit far so had to get a taxi. Place was loaded with people... More

We had read great things about First Watch, which of course prompted us to visit on our final day in Orlando. As others have mentioned this place gets very busy, we waited around 10 minutes for a table, which is perfectly acceptable for a popular establishment such as this. Nothing wrong with the service, and nothing really wrong with the... More

We were looking for a place to have breakfast with more of a local vibe then a touristy one. This was the perfect fit. Despite a problem we had with one of our dishes the food was delicious. We would definitely go back! The chicken chorizo breakfast burrito was insane. Still thinking about it!

We've been eating at First Watch on Sand Lake Road, about once a week since 2008, and always find the service & food consistently good. Even when they have new servers working we have never had an issue with our meals or service.

Recently had a breakfast meeting with a colleague and the food was very good along with the wait staff. We usually have breakfast-brunch at this location several times a month. Enjoy!

We happened to be at Barnes and Noble down the street and craved some breakfast but didn’t want to go to your general Perkins restaurant. We wanted to try the authentic feeling of Florida and the ma and pa type of restaurant. The first one that came up on GMaps from Droid was Frist Watch, and let me tell you,... More

This was recommended to us by our travel agent, it's not somewhere you would find unless you were looking for it. We went 3 times during our stay. The chocolate chip pancakes are to die for.

On a recent trip to Orlando we discovered this great little breakfast spot. Friendly service,fresh food and hot coffee. I had the Parma Hash with two eggs and fresh fruit/English muffin. Very good. My wife had a pecan, cranberry pancake with eggs and bacon. She loved it. Will definitely make this a regular dining spot whenever in town.
