First Watch serves breakfast any time they are open which makes it nice for those breakfast lovers. It is also a good place to grab a traditional lunch meal.

I have eaten at First Watch previously and really looked forward to breakfast with my daughter. We were both very disappointed. Our omelettes were heavy rather than the usual light and fluffy, my spinach was a few uncooked leaves seemingly added as an afterthought, and the feta cheese crumbles were sparingly tossed on the top. The coffee was good and... More

Great breakfast place in Dublin, OH. I usually order the eggs Benedict or one of their omelets. My wife and kids also like the pancakes, especially the granola banana pancakes, which is delicious. The side sausages are excellent and we usually order one for the table. It's about 3 miles from our home in Dublin, and we usually walk back... More

Never had a bad breakfast here. Service is excellent, but be prepared to wait. There is a reason everyone wants breakfast here. The coffee is great, so is the OJ. From pancakes to Eggs Benedict, you can't go wrong. A little noisy, but the food is very good.

How do places like IHOP stay in business when there are places like First Watch on the map? There is just no comparison. Fresh, interesting, delicious choices. Well decorated cozy space. Great service. We even placed our order while we were waiting and food was brought out to us just minutes after we were seated. I loved that option!! Food... More

First watch has the best breakfast and best service you'll find anywhere. The blueberry pancakes are awesosme and the bacon crisp and tasty. Wish we had one closer so we could go every week!

I really value my weekend breakfasts. I usually take the time to make an awesome breakfast at home. That's part of the reason why I am only giving an average rating. The food here is very average, not surprising at all. I wish they had a more interesting menu. The food overall was good, nothing to complain about, but also... More
