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.

Great for breakfast in particular. They offer many healthy, natural options. Seem to use really fresh ingredients. This has sort of an upscale diner feel. Perfect for Breakfast/brunch.

I went here with my family thinking it would be like First Watch in Hyde Park, Cincinnati. The prices are high and the quality of the food is poor. I would recommend one of the other local non chain breakfast restaurants in the area. Don't waste your time or money here.

The food is very good and they have bottles of Chaloupa on the table, what could be bad? The triathalete omelet is my favorite!

I have been to "First Watch" in Solon, Ohio, several times. I have never been disappointed. The restaurant is clean, bright, modern and open feeling. The service is fast, efficient and friendly. But the food really is the star. They are only open until 2:30 pm , so the menu is breakfast and lunch type items. There are specials every... More
