Unique Breakfast Options

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... read more

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.

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

Three strikes and your out. I tried, I really tried to like this restaurant. I won't dwell on the last two visits that were not good. I will focus on my last visit this morning. I was with a party of 6. I tried something different each time I came. This time I ordered the Bubba's Benny. Everyone got their... 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!
