We went on a Sunday morning( August 14) arriving at 10 AM. Told our wait would be 30-45 minutes. To their credit, they had coffee for waiting customers. A bit watery but passable. Table turn over was slow. It looked like one person was bussing tables. Reception staff, I think underappreciated the frustration of waiting patrons watching dirty tables slowly... More

Very fun visit. Food is wonderful . Can put your name in on the app before you go so you don't have to wait. The only reason it wasn't 5 stars was it took a long time for the food to come out. Kids and adults loved the food.

The biggest surprise on our most recent visit was that the menu had been changed, with the most noticeable change to us that the cranberry nut pancakes were gone; we always found these to be excellent and were sad they were no longer available - not even as a special request (my wife decided on the blueberry pancakes, which seemed...

Thank you very much for all your visits, Jimmy. We're sorry that your wife's pancake was a bit light on the blueberries! That's not what you should expect, and we'll always be happy to whip up a new one when we make mistakes. We appreciate your feedback, and we hope you two will give us another try soon! More

For several years now my friends and I have met each Sunday morning for breakfast at First Watch in Crocker Park. Many of us have food allergies. Not only do the servers remember and greet us, but they have, bless them all, grown accustomed to our variant eating protocols, our constant coffee refills, and our need for separate checks. Never...

Very creative omelettes and overall excellent food quality. Can be really busy at peak Breakfast times but the service is usually very crisp. Not cheap but worth it.
