You'll never believe that this is a franchise.

What a breakfast! It was certainly hard to choose from such a diverse menu but I chose the Floridian French toast and it was scrumptuous….topped with fresh fruit, wheat germ and cinnamon. Hot and tasty coffee. Can you imagine an egg crepe? Well that is what my husband chose and it was filled... read more

Salmon benedict and Monte cristo were awesome. I always get a muffin of the day, they are so dense and delicious. Shane was our server and was very pleasant. We will be back!

I met a business associate for breakfast and we were in a hurry. The service was prompt and understanding. They have a great selection, including those entrees that address dietary needs. Good place to eat.

I got a kale tonic and a day glow juice. Excellent, refreshing, nutritious way to start the day. VERY reasonably priced. Some ingredients organic. Fast service.

We were in town visiting some family and wanted somewhere fun for breakfast. First Watch was perfect. Casual with a great variety of breakfast and lunch options. Not a greasy spoon. You can have a traditional breakfast (I had fantastic sour dough French toast) or something unique (my wife had a hash with a fruit bowl). The fresh squeezed orange... More

The food was amazing we had breakfast, the wait time wasn't that long but it is definitely worth the wait if you have to! The service was friendly and always on point asking if we needed anything. I would definitely go back!

We had a gift card from First Watch, but we had never been to one. My husband and I both had terrific food. We were surprised at the unique selections even though it is a chain. I had the Chickichanga and my husband had the Bacado. We also shared a "juice" that was made with kale, cucumber and Fuji apple.... More

Amazing!! I love the healthy food options. We had two of the fresh juices and they we delish. We never stop in Charleston but after this, it's going to happen every time! Food was great with no complaints. Best omelet that I've ever had! Staff was friendly with a great atmosphere. If you're contemplating eating here... do it!!
