The menu options are healthy and taste is not lost on the healthier options. There is something for everyone, vegan, meat eaters and kids too. The juices are a great option from kale to carrot you really can't go wrong.

I come to first watch about once a month and enjoy it every time. I would give it an excellent except the potatoes are so filled with spice and salt if they make me want to drink gallons of water. But their food is creative and always delicious.

This is one of my favorite breakfast places to go to. The service is excellent and the food is terrific, for a reasonable price. The multi-grain banana pancakes are THE best pancakes I have ever eaten. The coffee is very good as well. You can't go wrong here!

They got both mine and my husband's orders wrong. The coffee was lukewarm, and they didn't bring any water. Service was OK, but not as good as the First Watch we are used to back home.

My son and I visited First Watch after checking out the menu online. He recently lost a lot of weight and is very conscious about what he eats. I had the Avocado, Bacon and Tomato Hash. It consisted of everything in the title, topped with Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese plus an English muffin with jam. The eggs were done... More

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!
