I had read about this place in a Sarasota magazine and also had it recommended so I was looking forward to trying it. We were shown to a table inside and offered coffee straight away. The coffee was very good! We three are all vegetarian and wondered what we could have, but there is a lot. I couldn't decide for... More

We have eaten many times at this First Watch over the past couple of years. Yesterday we went again after a summer spent away. We like the fact that there are choices like sandwich & salad or soup (no fries on menu...no guilt later). Generally would rate this restaurant a stars, but yesterday our sandwiches were not up to snuff.... More

Been in here 2 times for breakfast and both times were just great. Excellent fast service on both occasions and the food was to die for. The omelettes were just fab and the eggs Benedict were too.

Very good presentation for those that like out of the ordinary "eggs and toast". The food is plentiful, tasty, and reasonably priced. The service is great. The place is very clean. We eat there at least 3x a week. Add on their muffin of the day, it is great.

We were promptly seated for brunch. Everything was brought to our table as ordered. I had a salad without the chicken and it was a Mexican type. It was large! The dressing was lightly done. I could not stop eating, it was so good! Great breads, soup and menu! I wanted to try the Pumpkin Pancakes!!! Everything was PERFECT! The... More

We come here every week and the staff is always fast and friendly. They have a good menu with all the typical stuff plus some more creative items as well. The food is fresh and good quality. They have a nice selection of juices. They are vegan friendly. Wish they were open for dinner. A little pricey.

Not just the coffee but the unique juices available and the food is above the rest by far. I highly recommend locals and travelers stop by First Watch.

Just had a terrific breakfast, while my husband had a luscious lunch. Mine was an over easy egg, Gruyere, bacon, smashed avocado, lemon-dressed arugula on a toasted ciabatta bun. What a great flavor combo! Hubby had lovely grilled sandwich stacked with lean roast beef, Havarti cheese, and greens with horseradish sauce. There food is of consistent good quality, local if...
