They had a very good granola plate and since I am not a big breakfast fan, this worked out very well for me and my entire family. Everyone was please with the food and the service. There was 5 of us and by the time we got in the door the hos had seen us coming and was waiting with... More

A solid breakfast choice in the heart of downtown Rockville. They concentrate on fresh food- nothing too fancy. I much prefer the Rockville location to the Gaithersburg one. There are some great little shops to visit after you have your meal.

My husband ordered an omelette and I had eggs over potatoes with bacon and onion. We also shared a multi-grain pancake. The coffee was meh. The eggs were... More

Thanks for coming in with your husband! It's upsetting to know that your breakfast was just mediocre, as that's not what you should expect from First Watch. We take pride in the freshness and quality of all our dishes, and it sounds like we dropped the ball a bit. We've shared your review with our management team, and we hope... More

They have some very yummy healthy plates and juices. There are also your regular home style entrees, too. The food menu changes occasionally and it is always delicious!

Interesting and innovative options add a fresh spin to usual breakfast fare. We liked it so much we went back the following morning - coffee was good and plentiful without having to ask for it.

I went with 6 other people, so there was a long wait on a Sunday. The place is way too noisy, even louder than a school cafeteria. I ordered a Scramble, which I always thought meant eggs MIXED with other items. The eggs were quite dry with items that appeared to be tossed in after the eggs were cooked. Hard... More

Fast service, and friendly. We were there on a rainy Wednesday, and was busy and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and many seemed to be regulars. It was our first time and my eggs benedict was so sinful, and good. Would highly recommend.
