We stopped in Charleston on the way to NC and needed a place to fuel up that was healthy and flavorful. Happy to find all the positive reviews online and decided to try. The kids really enjoyed the pancakes and French toast. I was a big fan of the Avocado, Tomato and Bacon Hash. Delish!

What can I say that better describes this morning restaurant. A great menu and the food tastes better. Anything you'd expect for breakfast, or a nice lunch. If you want that special place in town for a great breakfast, this is it.

Good place to go to meet a friend for lunch. Get there early or late - because lunch time will be crowded.

The breakfast is excellent. Pancakes with many topping choices and a banana strawberry crepe that was more than my spouse could finish. Perfectly done.

• Very, very nice and clean. • Delicious food with fresh ingredients. I had the multi-grain plain pancakes and my wife had the Bacado (bacon, avocado, cheese) omelet. • Wait staff was very friendly.

Love being able to find places like this! Great service, very good coffee, I had the local hash for breakfast & it was delicious, my only thought ~ not a complaint because it was very good ~ is that I would have liked my veggies & hash a little more roasted / crispy,, I know, I know I'm being a...

There's nothing like First Watch in Charleston. It is one of a kind. I know it's a franchise but the excel at what they do. Service is always exceptional and the food is great. I don't care if you like omelets, pancakes or eggs. I've never had a bad meal there.

Really wanted to find a nice breakfast place during our visit to Charleston, and we found it! Lots of unique offerings. Service was a little slow and we had to wait for about 30 minutes for a table, but it was a busy sunday morning so we didn't mind. Will definitely be back here!

When you wait for a table, you know its going to be good! Our 20 minute wait proved to be worth it. An extensive menu of classics and specialties made it hard to choose for brunch. Our party of three ended up ordering different things and sharing. The Monte Cristo was great, the omelet stuffed and filling. The fruit-filled crepes... More
