Enjoyed breakfast here a few times

Been with coworkers for a morning meeting. It's often a crowded diner with friendly staff and great food. It's mostly focused on healthy eating habits but they still have good French toast and bacon for the salt-of-the-earth diner like me. Coffee is fresh and consistently refilled.

I eat breakfast and brunch all over the greater Nashville area and I've been here at least four or five times--I don't understand why anyone likes First Watch. The food is OK, but not memorable. I usually got an omelet or something similar and I can make fluffier, moister eggs at home. The coffee is the absolute worst--I've had better... More

Very good food and good service, it's a little hard to find, its buried in a plaza next to an "urgent care" medical facility. If your affliction is morning hunger, they'll take care of you at First Watch.

It's mostly focused on healthy eating habits but they still have good French toast and bacon for the salt-of-the-earth diner like me. Coffee is fresh and consistently refilled. Equal to Cracker Barrel in price (less in atmosphere and quality) but still good.

Busy restaurant that is clean, depending on day of visit one may have to wait, although it is worth it, i believe it is much better than the egg and i.

We ate breakfast at First Watch the Friday after Thanksgiving. The place was packed when we got there but it did not take that long for us to be seated. We sat at a round table and it was quite comfy for our party of eight. The food was good staple breakfast fare. I had one of the scrambler dishes.... More

Everything is fixed fresh as it is ordered. Great place to meet friends for breakfast or lunch. Sometimes the wait can be a few minutes. A local favorite.

The food was first rate and had good presentation. The place was clean and lively environment with added patio for outside dining as well. The staff was quick and efficient and willing to go that little extra to make the experience great. It can get a little noisy when full and that was my only compliant.

Although the menu is large, I haven't found anything on it that First Watch does exceptionally well. Nothing has been horrible, there's just nothing to keep me coming back. Service has always been fine.
