Too long a wait but very good breakfast

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.

Corn tortillas with chicken, eggs, avocado. Been watching my diet and it was very healthy. Oh...and tasty too. Many other good things on the menu.

Went on a Sunday morning. I was craving some good pancakes. The wait was 15mins, which was fine. I got a text stating that my table was ready. I got my blueberry pancake, which was good. The egg was over cook, bacon was cold and hard. I could of gotten better eggs and bacon at a Waffle House. The food... More

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

Paying more attention to foods I eat. Nice to have choices and FW gives them. Had the Cherry Quinoa Chicken for breakfast. Real healthy. Great combination. Choices for protein, calories, energy. Always takes time to choose. Going back.

Very attractive spot with good food and service.They are strictly breakfast and lunch so don't come past 2:00. Expect to wait at peak times. While not my favorite spot for either an exceptionally satisfying or exceptionally low priced breakfast, there's certainly nothing wrong with it. Be aware that you will need to hassle-or enjoy- the Crocker Park Mall navigation experience...

There's only several places in West like to eat for breakfast and this is one of the best. The food is good, location is a little difficult to find parking, other than that it's a good place to stop.

Went here with my daughter. Waited 45 minutes to be seated on a Saturday morning for breakfast. Being from NYC if we had to wait this long we would have walked out. The food was decent but not spectacular. I'd suggest reservations if you go. It wasn't that good to be worth the wait.
