Enjoyed a late family lunch at First Watch on Cattleman. Nice menu selections. Everything on the menu "felt clean". There was something for everyone. Loved the Chopped Avocado and Chicken Salad. The hit was the Avocado Toast. Two eggs over easy and a generous portion of avocado spread on toast. Service was a little spotty but the pleasant atmosphere made... More

This busy breakfast spot is a great go-to spot for business meetings. This time I chose the salmon toast --smoked salmon and cream cheese served on a multigrain toast with capers. Delicious!!

Organic, fresh, flavorful and wide menu selection- it doesn't get better. The omelet was the best, the chicken, bean corn salad spectacular. The Day smoothie was so good. The interior design was so clean cool and inviting. Very popular so be ready for a wait.

I am a 12 year old The food was great and on a Father's Day that is the place to be. I had the fruit crepes and they were delicious. The yogurt there was amazing and there Granola is the best in town. I truly advise you to go to enjoy a great meal.🙂

This is our favorite breakfast spot when we visit the Sarasota area. The restaurant was renovated recently and is really cute and clean. We have eaten here quite a few times and have NEVER had a bad meal. I love their twist on Eggs Benedict and the fact that they serve fresh green salad with a lot of their eggs.... More
