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.

Whenever we get to go back to Florida to see family we make sure we stop here. There are always a wide variety of favorites and specials. 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. Sat outside and enjoyed good service. Nothing remarkable, just a great healthy breakfast served well - which is all I was looking for! No espresso however so it is... More

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

Very good breakfast at this location in Lakewood Ranch. Called ahead to hold a table. It was ready when we arrived; seated in less than 5 minutes though there was a long line. A waiter was serving complimentary juice to those waiting for a table - a very nice touch. Choice of inside seating or outside overlooking the parking lot.... More

Okay, I know this is a chain restaurant, BUT...they do so many things right! The food and service are consistently good, which we all expect from a restaurant. However, it's the extras here that make a difference. On weekends, when there's a long wait, they have free coffee and tea while you wait. They also have plenty of newspapers for... More
