I love their coffee. They are very popular on weekend mornings but it's worth the wait. Everything is fresh and the service is top notch. We come here a lot.

My sister and I treated my Mom to brunch. The menu was so appetizing that it was difficult to decide what I wanted. I got the pecan pancakes. They were great. Staff was very friendly!

This is my parents' neighborhood breakfast place so I go here whenever I visit them. I'm always struck by how warmly my parents are greeted by the manager, who knows where to seat them and just how to joke around with my dad. The wait staff are always cheerful and accommodating--to what is often a very demanding clientele. And the... More

Some patrons came in and sat themselves at vacant tables; while other patrons patiently waited for the hostess to seat them. Hostess very disorganized; clueless as to table availability and had to walk through restaurant to check and would end up getting distracted by other issues. When we were seated it took 30 minutes plus for a server to appear.... More

Some friends alerted me to First Watch and so we ventured there for an early Sunday morning breakfast. Easy to locate and ample parking. We were greeted by the entire staff (so it seemed) as we were being led to our booth. The facility was very clean and 'fresh' looking (colorful pictures of foodstuff adorning the walls). Our server, Kiona,... More
