Came for breakfast Sunday at 8am. Jeff was our server and treated us like we were long time friends. Food was great and service even better. My wife loves this place and I always enjoy going when we go together. This place gives you the feel of an upscale restaurant without the inflated prices. Best breakfast option in town. Thanks...

They offer a lot of choices, and I have never had anything that was not great. Coffee is excellent, service is fast and friendly. The only issue is that because the food is outstanding, there is always a line to get in. Turnover of tables is decent, so the wait is not as bad as you would expect given the... More

My wife wanted to go here for her Birthday breakfast and was I surprised it was very good. You can get in a long line depending on the day and time but it is worth the wait. You can do breakfast and lunch. I suggest the pecan pancakes but my wife had the full breakfast. Give it a try I... More

It's the extra touches which make this place special! Breakfast items, sandwiches, and salads are served here but only until mid-afternoon. Sandwiches are piled so full, you usually need a fork to get it all! This aren't your ordinary sandwiches - most have "extra" touches and homemade condiments missing from the offerings from the usual chains. Same for breakfast items... More

Three different Eggs Benedict dishes on the menu - I got the ham and tomato and will try turkey and avocado next time. Great presentation - potatoes and small bowl of fruit came with the meal. Slightly too much ham for me but my husband liked the way the dish looked and will order it next time. Prices and service... More

We have been coming to First Watch for years. A recent visit for breakfast was a little disappointing. I had the breakfast scramble and my husband had a different egg scramble dish. We had 2 waters to drink. Our bill was a little over $19. The seating was quick, although not satisfactory at first. We were late in the morning.... More

Being a NJ girl, I miss diners, and First watch is the closest thing that I can get to a diner in cincinnati ( and that's a compliment by the way). :) I took my son out for a mom/ son breakfast date and he loved the place as well....

We enjoyed both breakfast and lunch here recently while having work done on our car across the street. The breakfast was served up quickly and was very tasty.
