Outstanding breakfast venue in Crocker Park

Clean, modern, great location and solid menu choices make this my go to spot for a breakfast meeting.

Resturant is only open for breakfast and lunch. Best breakfast around town! Love their eggs benedict and fresh squeezed orange juice! Would highly recommend this location!

We having eaten here before, yet not recently. I was disappointed in the food. The breakfast meal was not very tasty and the coffee was really bad. Something has changed, but will try again.

This is a must eat at place whenever we visit family in Cleveland. The food is consistently good. The staff are very friendly and helpful, even when the place is packed. And getting in line via remote app was easy and efficient. Our table was ready within minutes of our arrival. We will be back!

The place was a hopping! No shortage of customers willing to give up their hard earned cash for average food. They do have some unique items on the menu, but they are eggs and hash browns any way you look at it. If you have the time to wait, and the cash, then check it out.

First Watch is great for breakfast when you're looking for something different. They still have your standard breakfast items for those not looking to try something new (pancakes, yogurt, muffins, omelettes, eggs benedict) but their menu is a fresh take on breakfast. Their fruit is always fresh and delicious so anything topped with fruit is a great choice. Most recently,... More

Parking is an issue with this place. Well for us it was. It is very crowded on the weekends and is closed by 2pm. We brought our 2 girls which proved to be a bad idea. Tight quarters. The food was abundant and pleasing though. Fresh fruit. Fantastic coffee. Will try again without the kids.
