Friendly service, fair prices and above all, savory breakfasts make this a favorite restaurant; even though not exactly in our neighborhood.

This has been a regular spot for my mother, sister and me for a couple years now. We visit about every two weeks and have never been disappointed in either the food or the service. The food is always fresh and well made, the coffee delicious and hot and the service friendly and welcoming. The only thing negative is they... More

There aren't many places in Brookfield where you can have breakfast outside on a nice summer morning but First Watch is one -- even if your view is of a strip center parking lot. That's the good news. The other good news is the service was outstanding and the coffee was hot. Now, the not so good news. The food... More

I have been here several times and there is always a crowd which says that others also like this place. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The food is very good with fresh ingredients and many health options.

My friend had a birthday greeting from First Watch with a free entrée gift, and invited us to join her for Monday morning breakfast. I checked TripAdvisor--high rating and great pics of the menu options. Let's go. I gave the April 2013 post for the fresh fruit crepe a helpful vote; and, I was pleased with that choice for breakfast!... More

Upon being seated, we opted for breakfast rather than lunch, and our choices of the Trifecta (2 eggs, one large pancake or waffle, bacon) and the Bacon and Onion Hash were very... More
