Good and Healthy

It is hard to find a good healthy breakfast. I had an egg white omelet with onions, big juicy mushrooms and salsa on the side with fresh fruit. The place is well decorated AND they now allow dogs at the outdoor dinning area!

The First Watch marketing dept. continue their drive to 'basic & Urbanism' with their latest replacement of a customer favorite by replacing the colorful quality laminated menus with dull recycled brown giant cards that are very difficult to hold much less read without glasses! It follows the removal of carpets giving 'warehouse' floors which make the restaurant very noisy at... More

Thanks so much for all your visits and your feedback. It's upsetting to hear that you're not a fan of some of our recent changes in the restaurant. We do realize that the concrete floors, while they create a cleaner environment, have caused an increase in the noise level that our design team is working to address. The removal of... More

Did a take-out because my husband was in a nearby hospital. The breakfast was substantial and of excellent quality. Had a burrito and fruit cup with an English muffin. They packaged it up nicely for easy transport. Excellent and cheerful service.

Had breakfast here several times while visiting Bradenton. Typical First Watch chain menu and as always the food and service were excellent! This restaurant is actually close to the Lakewood Ranch Town Center so I don't get the Bradenton address.

More often it is for breakfast/brunch, but we have enjoyed lunches as well. Everything has always been fresh and tasty and served by employees who you can tell enjoy working there. I'll add... More

Stopped for a quick meeting based upon Tripadvsiro ratings. Ordered the Avocado toast (avocado on toast with an egg), with a freshly made juice and I couldn't imagine a healthier breakfast.

For years was a fav place of ours with consistently good breakfast / lunch foods, cheerful atmosphere and friendly staff. Their renovations a couple years replaced the sound-deadening carpeting with the noise-enhancing bare concrete beneath it. Their makeover of the wall colors and decor was about as successful. Final result is a very noisy atmosphere that is not conducive to... More
