Its crowded for a reason! The food is always good, the service is fast, considering how crowded it always is. We've been more than once and will surely go again.

Very filling breakfast with numerous egg and potato offerings. Enjoyed the bacon and onion hash with fruit and English muffin. Spouse had The Works Omelet. Attentive service despite the restaurant being quite busy, Would recommend as a quality breakfast/brunch while in the Concy area.

Were in town to watch my grandson while my daughter and son-in-law went to a wedding. Tried to go for lunch but got there late (they close at 2:30PM). So went back next morning for breakfast. It is crowded but they handle the crowds well and we did not have to wait long. Would have been worth it any way... More

Stopped into First Watch this morning with my boyfriend and his father. It was very good, but a bit pricey for breakfast. We ordered: Bacon & onion hash - was very good, although could have used more onion just for a but more flavor. They do keep hot sauce at the table which I appreciate. It came with fresh fruit...

I was skeptical about this place because I don't like "chain" restaurants (with more than one location) but this place is what all chain restaurants should aspire to be. The service is very efficient and quick. The menu pretty much covers all options for breakfast. (Our gluten-free friend had something she could eat too.) It's reasonably priced. Very nice option....
