We needed breakfast and had never been in Brookfield before so I checked TripAdvisor and found First Watch. We arrived at 9am on a busy Saturday and had to wait about 20 minutes. The food and service were good! Mix and match pancakes-- she ordered chocolate chip and cranberry nut and I had a veggie omelette. We would return again.

Arrived at Noon for a 15 minute wait. Not enough seating area, so a lot of elderly people were standing around waiting for a table. Our waiter suggested the grilled reuben...my husband had a full sandwich which came with a side. He chose Italian Wedding Soup, which he said was delicious. I had half a Reuben with 1/2 of a...

Tried this for the first time based on the reviews I saw on this site. I had a very good veggie omlete and my son had a traditional eggs and bacon dish. The menu offers light and healthy options as well as traditional favorites. I will definitely be back.

Nice little breakfast place. In strip mall I was impressed with the menu. Not your typical ham and eggs. Very unique items on menu Service was good. Our food came out quick and hot Staff friendly. Place you can take children although items for kids seems to be limited I highly recommend you try them for breakfast

This is a casual place open for breakfast and lunch. The menu is pretty big and the food is fine. Not fancy or with frills - pretty straightforward. Good value

I have never been disappointed by the food here. My only complaint is that it closes by mid-afternoon, so I can't go when I am looking for a late lunch.
