This was my first visit to this cozy family style restaurant. Easy to miss cause its tucked in a fairly large shopping center but nice décor and god service. Seems to specialize in breakfasts and lunches. I found their menu selection to be excellent with many healthy items. Food was tasty. I will return.

Service and food was very good. We are vegetarian and they had good menu options for veggies. Fresh OJ was great. Food comes out in a timely manner even when the place is packed. Our family has a ton of dietary needs and we all enjoyed our meals. My wife and I went back for a 2nd time as this... More

Big sausage links, big omelette, perfectly crisp bacon, excellent potatoes and good coffee. What else can you ask of a breakfast place? The chocolate chip pancake that my son ordered was very large. I tried it and was a good pancake as well. Overall, we all enjoyed the breakfast and will come back next time we are in the area.

All I can say is everytime we come up to this area from Chicago we have to make a stop at First Watch for breakfast! It is great! The good is fresh and good. The prices are average. The pecan pancake is AMAZING! Worth the short wait!

The server was fast and friendly. Food is made fresh daily. They cut the fruit and make their granola every morning. Definitely coming back.

It has proven to be very difficult to find healthy establishments as of late. What a breath of fresh air! The only thing that needs drastic improvement is the service. It is very slow and seem to be understaffed. We'll be back, just really hope we end up with faster/attentive service.

First Watch must be the place for breakfast in Brookfield given the number of people there at 10am on Saturday morning! After a quick 10 minute wait for a table, we sat down to a wide variety of menu choices. The food was excellent as was the service. We will definitely return if we find ourselves in the Brookfield area.

The portion size was just right and our breakfast was served up with a smile! The restaurant is bright with ample window views and a patio. I was pleasantly surprised by the creative variety of menu choices. Looking forward to coming back for the French toast.

Met a friend for breakfast Saturday morning. service friendly and fast. 15 minute wait time, but generous area to wait in without hovering over tables. Food was delicious.
