I'll Have What She's Having

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.

First Watch offers a very nice comfortable atmosphere for breakfast, brunch or lunch, ranging from traditional breakfast fare to seasonal soups and vegetables. Meals can be glutin free if you like. Outside seating at shaded tables is available. The service is fast and friendly. Custom orders are easily handled.

I had the Floridian French Toast that came with fresh bananas, kiwi and berries. I had lunch here before, but I prefer this place for breakfast.

Loved the creative breakfast skillets. Some are spicy and all have a very fresh look and taste. Excellent huge pancakes with many out of the ordinary choices. Try the carrot pancake!
