Open early and closes early as well you can always find healthy breakfast or lunch at First Watch. Healthy choices and large portions, most meals are large enough to share.

This was our first visit. I always order the same thing, bacon cheddar omelette with hash browns and wheat toast. I'm normally stuffed by the time I leave most places and always regret going out for breakfast. ;-) When I saw that greens were the accompaniment for the omelette, I knew I was in a different place. There was also... More

Inside is super clean and decor was a nice change from chain breakfast places. Food was great and healthy. Wish there was one in my... More

I was impressed with the food and the service as usual. I love First Watch because the food is always fresh and tasty. However, on this visit what impressed me the most was that they have stopped using Styrofoam takeout containers. They are the first restaurant that I have seen using sugarcane containers that are biodegradable. I'm a tree hugger... More

Walked over from the Hyatt Regency Resort (only 2.1 mi one way). Had a really great, healthy breakfast. Wonderful artisan whole grain bread served with Omelets.
