I've always heard great things about this restaurant and wanted to experience it for myself. It was very crowded for Tuesday morning and we had a 10 minute wait in a very small area. It took forever to get drinks and place our order. Our server wasn't very friendly. I asked for more cream for my coffee and I never... More

My wife and I had a very good breakfast here recently. Really good omelets and wonderful fresh-squeezed juice.

Gourmet breakfast in a trendy little restaurant. The food was good. Close to Wright State University and the Air Force Base.

First Watch is our go to breakfast stop. They have reasonable prices, healthy options and great customer service. It is on the small side so expect to wait especially on the weekends.... I suggest using the no wait app, or you check in and they'll call u when your table is ready.

Wholesome ingredients, freshly squeezed juices that tickle your tastebuds. Very close to Wright State. A must stop for parents visiting kids at school.

We had visited the First Watch last year and returned to enjoy a hearty and tasty family style breakfast for a group of friends and ourselves. We tried the farmer's breakfast, pancakes, and omelets and all were great. Best breakfasts in the area.

The restaurant is a little hard to find and you may miss it. I did so I called, it is located in the shopping center across from Wright State Univ. You will see the Texas Roadhouse on the corner. I visited with a friend and greeted by our waitress. We were not quite ready to order, and that was our... More

Thank you so much for all your visits to our different restaurants. We're sorry about the confusion with your server and that the bottom of your pancake seemed a bit overcooked! We do clean our bathrooms and floors daily, though we appreciate your feedback and we have been sure to be extra thorough lately, as we definitely want our customers... More

Great place to.eat healthy or not so healthy. Nice staff and clean! Parking can be issue and this place has long lines if your timing is off. Get early on the weekends. Closes after lunch!

This restaurant is close to us but a little out of the way so it had been years since we stopped. This was our big mistake, we were expecting average but it was a big step above. There was a slight wait on a Saturday morning that was to be expected. When we were sat, the service was prompt and... More
