Good menu choices

We ate here twice and both times we got good service even though it was crowded. The food was good and they have lots of options on the menu. We also like it because they serve breakfast until 2:00. First time I got the Ham and Tomato Benedict and second I got the Bacon and Onion Hash. Both were... read more

20 minute or less wait just like they told is. Very much worth the wait. We had traditional breakfast plus pecan whole wheat pancakes. Excellent breakfast they have both inside and outside seating. Good menu choices and breakfast available until3 pm

In today's world of fast foods and processed foods - what some call the SAD diet - Standard American Diet - First Watch is a breath of fresh air! My favorite menu item is the quinoa topped with chicken and goat cheese, and laced with dried cherries. Priced reasonable at about $8.50 plus tax, it is a filling and delicious... More

The lady across from us at the community table liked it. So I ordered the new special, guacamole on toast with fried eggs. Now I too can highly recommend it!

I had seen First Watch’s name from the street, and I had no idea it was a restaurant. It’s a chain restaurant that could easily be a local place. In a grocery store shopping center, the parking is easy and the restaurant is wheelchair accessible. It has a big, open dining room with large art on the wall, and the... More

We have been to other First Watch restaurants and this one is just as good as the others we've been to. The skillet's are always very good and the service was excellent. Never rushed and never ignored. Tried the pumpkin pancakes off of the seasonal menu; they were "OK". Will stick with the "normal" cakes when we return.

My wife and I went here while visiting our son. Looking for a place close by and with good reviews. It was busy on a Saturday morning but we only waited about 10 minutes for a table. We could have sat at the communal table. Extensive menu. Poached eggs were cooked just right.
