I was visiting from Minnesota for a week and terribly worried about where I would eat healthy during that time. I kept coming back here, especially for the breakfast "quinoa power bowl." My basted eggs on top were so large, fresh, and yolks so yellow....More

First visit, will be back soon! After recently moving to the area from California it was so refreshing to find this hidden gem. A little more expensive than normal breakfast spots but well worth it. Very fresh food with an upscale twist.

Not your typical menu. Lots of great couches and things that you would never find in most restaurants. The service was very good and so was the food.

We visited First Watch for breakfast and had a meal similar to a Denny's or Bob Evans. Good selection of food and the waitstaff was very friendly even as the place was mobbed. We will be going back.
