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!

I've heard so much great feedback about First Watch so I tried while I was in Brentwood TN. I had Biscuit and Gravy and they were good but not for me. I have southern roots and the Gravy they served wasn't the brown Gravy I was used to. It had sausage but didn't seem like a breakfast sausage. The quality... More

Thanks very much for giving us a try while you were in town, Melinda. It sounds like you ordered our Biscuits and Turkey Sausage Gravy -- a healthier twist on the classic Biscuits and Gravy dish. We sincerely hope you'll consider giving us another try next time you're in the area. More

We had eaten at this location when in town last year. Not so good this time. When coming on the weekend be willing to wait 45 minutes. Love the fresh juice and veg drinks. Had the multigrain pancakes with bacon and eggs. The service was not at a level i would expect for a upgrade orangic brunch spot. Pancakes were... More

If you're seeking breakfast in northern Williamson County, your best bet is probably First Watch. It's miles beyond the unexceptional gruel cranked out by the assembly-line kitchens at the local Cracker Barrel and McDonald's factories. Not only is First Watch better than other purported breakfast joints but they feature a healthy twist with nearly every meal. There are soon to... More
