A nice hearty breakfast with tons of choices. I particularly like the omelette The Works. The whole grain bread is very good. Pancakes are amazing. Fruits are fresh. Coffee is so-so. Good choice for fruit juices. Good place to bring entire family.

I had been away from home on primarily business travel for 10 days. Found First Watch on my last day in Brentwood and was delighted with the service, quality, and setting. 1st Watch is simiply, streamlined, and satisfying. It was pretty close to what I'd make at home and I needed that taste of home. I'll be back next time... More

The attempt is to make an upscale breakfast place with more organic twist to their dishes. Translated, you pay double for essentially same food. The service was terrible and the food was fair at best. This place has turned over 3 times in the last 5-6 years. Key things a breakfast place needs - good service, good food, fair price... More

We have visited this chain numerous times and have been disappointed in this particular restaurant. They were very vague about gluten-free dishes and our eggs were cold. They mixed up our order as well. The manager did take 20% off our bill when we complained but we are unlikely to return.

I had the Hash with eggs, bacon, and avocado and AMAZING toast and preserves with a little bowl of fruit, and the best coffee EVER. My husband had a sandwich and soup and loved it. The wait was minimal and the service impeccable.

My wife and I enjoyed breakfast here. We each had the Farmhouse Hash. Eggs on a bed of country style potatoes, grilled tomatoes, bacon and avocados. Absolutely amazing. The coffw was good enough to drink black. I would give it 5 stars but they might want to consider offering Gluten free menu items. Gluten friendly doesnt cut it. Other than... More

It has gone downhill . There is trash in the garden around the front door that has obviously been there a while. Surfaces around the restaurant are sticky. The coffee pot they leave on your table looked dirty. On a positive note, the eggs Benedict was attractively served, but the eggs were over cooked. The Avocado Toast was very nice,... More

As one of my kids is a pescetarian, finding restaurants can be troublesome. We ran across First Watch and it was the perfect choice! Lots of vegetarian options on the menu and the food was great. Unique and flavorful options. We plan to go back tomorrow!
