Great Breakfast Place

First watch is a daytime restaurant, serving breakfast and lunch, no dinner. Their breakfasts are super, with healthy options available. Every breakfast plate comes with a small fruit cup and seasoned breakfast potatoes. The emphasis here is on fresh and healthy.

Went here 3x, twice with my boyfriend and his daughter, second time, just with the boyfriend. Both experiences were exceptional, good food and great service. The lemon muffins were tasty! I was looking for something light to try, the fruit crepes were perfect! Wish there was a reestaurant like this, in So. California!

We have been to First Watch a couple of times and enjoyed it both times. The food is fresh ingredients. Their menu has both traditional and unique entree. The service friendly and timely. Items are a little pricy but still a good value.

Tasty food, many choices, fast service. The ambiance is 1960's home town friendly. Menu items change with the seasons. Excellent value for the money.

We eat breakfast in this restaurant often. It offers the traditional meals, but has lots of healthy alternatives that are tasty and satisfying. Have visited over 6 times in the last 3 months, and has make my favorite places to eat at. Atmosphere is causal, staff are friendly and food arrives promptly. Recommend highly.

I like this quirky restaurant as they have taken breakfast and sort of stylized it. Their omelets are very good with unusual ingredients. The coffee is strong and they leave the pot. the wait staff is always in a good mood.

"discovered" this cafe @ a month ago and have eaten there at least once a week since both breakfast and lunch. The breakfast have some unusual choices that are healthy and tasty. Their tomato soup is great and with the pick 2 option makes a great lunch. Staff is attentive without hovering A defintie keeper.

The staff were wonderful! The restaurant was clean and uncluttered. They make it easy to make healthy choices but most importantly it tasted great! Looking forward to going back.
