Better than average breakfast fare - very busy usually. They can be a bit inconsistent and the last time I was there I ordered an omelet and it came out very brown and crispy. A proper omelet should be cooked through but not browned. Nice fresh edible fruit in most cases and tasty properly cooked potatoes. Friendly staff. I have... More

Went here for a church group meeting. On a Sunday morning. We were seated right away and provided complimentary coffee. The servers were able to accomodate our large group and we received our order very quickly. I had the bacado omelette with egg whites and mixed greens and it was delicous. Others had the trifecta and raved about the yummy... More

First Watch is a popular restaurant for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Food is good, though pricey. There's often a wait on Sundays...

Will not visit this location again. A number of things left me concerned about cleanliness. The bathrooms were not clean, I received dirty silverwear and I was given a glass that looked like it came out of the dish washer and lot allowed to dry.

We always enjoy breakfast at First Watch. Good pancakes (one is enough!) Also good oatmeal. Muffin choices change, love the chocolate. My wife loves the bacon avocado tomato hash. The coffee is just so-so, not my favorite.

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
