Even though the website indicates several gluten free options, this location doesn't have any. The only thing I was able to order was bacon and a fruit cup. Worse - I asked about the fruit before ordering and requested that they remove the pineapple - when it came to the table it was a bowl of pineapple with 1 strawberry... More

I started eating my side salad that was not supposed to have the balsamic vinegar and after several bites saw... More

First Watch is like the wonderful breakfast restaurants you might find in Chicago or NYC. A wonderful selection of every kind of breakfast/brunch food in large portions. Everyone at our table is very happy with the food and service every time we go.

We waited a while for a table, but it was worth the wait. The food was served fresh and hot, and the selections were unique and reasonably priced. Overall, a good experience.

They start with excellent service followe up by great food. The coffee is very hot and fresh. The steel cut oatmeal was loaded with fresh fruit and walnuts. I asked for one side egg that was cooked to perfection . All of that for $13

The menu options are healthy and taste is not lost on the healthier options. There is something for everyone, vegan, meat eaters and kids too. The juices are a great option from kale to carrot you really can't go wrong.

I come to first watch about once a month and enjoy it every time. I would give it an excellent except the potatoes are so filled with spice and salt if they make me want to drink gallons of water. But their food is creative and always delicious.
