A bright, happy place with healthier choices.

We have been here several times and have always enjoyed it. On Saturday mornings we usually have to wait for a table, but they have fresh coffee available while you wait.

Love going to First Watch!!! One of my favorite places to eat breakfast or lunch. My favorite is the cranberry quinoa. We also have been to the First Watch in Scottsdale AZ and the food is consistently good! Very accommodating and the gift card is a great perk. Highly recommend!

My wife is very picky regarding fresh and natural foods. She likes this restaurant because there is always something on the menu that appeals to her. I like it because the service is always great and the prices are reasonable. They also have specials and coupons in local flyers. Well worth the trip regardless.

We ordered the florentine Eggs Benedict. They used raw spinach and it cooled the food and a light sauté would have made it tastier. The hollandaise sauce was bland. The potatoes seemed tart (treated with citric acid to keep them from browning?) and barely warm. We got a fruit bowl for $5. Hard to get a variety of ripe delicious... More

We eat here often, and appreciate the unique menu options and the weekend specials. Food is always fresh, many healthy options, good portion sizes. It gets busy fast, on the weekends, but tables turn fast as well. Complimentary coffee is available while you wait. In the summer, there is a nice outdoor eating area as well.

Not only were the blueberry pancakes steamy hot, it came with homemade blueberry syrup. My grandaughter had grilled cheese and tomatoes basil soup. Everything they serve looks just as if you made it in your own kitchen. The ingredients are good quality. I love the healthy choices they offer.

I have experienced the food and service in both Brookfield and Mequon. The food is always good (I especially like the grilled turkey sandwich with tomato basil soup and CAPS, Etc.). The wait staff do their jobs well, but the manager has to stress to his/her staff that smiling is allowed. Is it too much to ask for professionalism AND... More

Huge menu of quality, healthy ingredients loaded with delicious flavor, efficiently served even when super busy (which is most of the time), You get your own pot of coffee and pitcher of water on your table...so your cup never needs to run empty! Never disappointed at First Watch! Just wish they were open for dinner!

This is a nice place for a couple eggs, but it's nothing special. They have many healthy options, so it's a nice alternative. However, if you want a good classic breakfast you might struggle to find quality. The eggs Benedict weren't unique and didn't have much flavor. Also, there is only one potato option- cubes with onion and seasoning. They... More

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.
