Our first choice for family breakfast.

Love the healthy food at first watch. I always get an omelet and I love that you can get a salad on the side. They just remodeled the decor which is nice. It is a bit expensive give the food portion. The service is always excellent

The food is amazing and service is very good! Wish I was there right now! For a chain restaurant, the food is done incredibly well!

Had breakfast here twice in 4 days. Nice selection. My wife tried a quinoa based salad & an omelet. I had the traditional breakfast. Everything was tasty, prepared correctly, and arrived at the right temperature. Service & coffee were excellent as well.

Since their remodel there is no privacy; food is fine and servers nice. Used to have booths and you could sip coffee and eat and talk. Now it is very open and other's conversations are easily heard, rather distracting.The food was ok, had the egg hash with spinach... altho the potatoes were overdone and the eggs were bland, took a...

My wife and I had breakfast Tuesday at First Watch after spending the night in Chesterfield. It is SOOO much better than the free swill the hotels offer. My wife had the avocado toast, lots of diced and seasoned avocado atop whole grain toast, topped off with a pair of basted eggs. She loved it, so much so that she... More

Very good food and not too long a wait at about 10:00 a.m. Great unusual juice choices and a varied menu. Were staying at Doubletree down the road. This was a mile from there and a much better breakfast!

OK, it is a chain, and it is breakfast for lunch so I was not expecting much. Boy was I ever surprised. Both my wife and I had wonderful lunches, served fast and by a super server who was tipped for her excellence. Yes, the sausage gravy came out just warm, but a simple notification to the waitress and a... More

Meet my girlfriend here lunch at her suggestion. First time here and won't be my last. Great friendly staff. Ordered the Santa Fe salad. Unbelievable, YUMMY. A little spicy, which the server told me in advance. Very fresh. My girlfriend ordered the chocolate chip pancakes. Looked and smelled delious. Our server was wonderful and really took care of us.
