The best breakfast in Worthington with all the trimmings that go with it. A casual crowded restaurant with fabulous food served by an attentive wait staff. From their speciality items, omelets, to bacon and eggs they serve a great breakfast. Their lunches are good but their breakfasts are superior. Try First Watch and you will become a regular.

Yummy lemon ricotta pancakes, topped with fresh berries and lemon curd, tho I think menu said berry compote. Pancakes did not need any kind of syrup, these were delicious on their own. Also ordered a side of over easy eggs which were done perfectly. Coffee was the good stuff, a carafe left for us to pour as needed. Love. Had... More

This is a chain that is a good place with juice drinks and great egg dishes. Love the lemon ricotta pancakes- served with lemon curd and fresh strawberries. Omelets are good- the multigrain toast is very good. Actually have not tried any lunch soups or sandwiches as can't forego luscious breakfast selections. This and Upper Arlington location are places you... More

Convenient to where I live. Coffee consistently tastes bitter. The day I was there at 10:30 am it was crowded & took awhile to get seated. Maybe 5 people ahead of me and no one greeted us for at least 10 minutes. Bacon was cool and overdone. Pecan pancakes not listed on current menu, had to ask if available. It... More

We went here for Breakfast and found the food to be great. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes and my wife had the breakfast tacos. Both were very good and should be high on you list if you visit.

Besides the usual breakfast offerings there were lots of interesting fresh veggies added. Plus a lovely salad accompanied many of the meals. It was lightly dressed and went surprisingly well with my omelet.

Good Food and service. You may have to wait to get a table, but it is well worth the wait. As the food is excellent. Our server Bethany was awesome and had a great sense of humor. I had the pancakes for lunch - awesome.

We took a chance that we would get seated fairly quickly and we were. The food was great and so was the service. Coffee is always hot and fresh. Waffle was light and delicious, bacon crisp and eggs perfect. The toast was so good I bought a loaf of the multi-grain bread to take home.
