We frequently eat breakfast or lunch out(also called brunch). One of our favorites is First Watch because it's close and the menu choices are great. Just had to write this review because for some time I have been gettiing the Roast Beef & Havariti sandwich. It has become my all time favorite. Tender slices of R.B. on sourdough toasted bread...

I called 20 minutes ahead and had the best BLT I've ever had. Sure a BLT is a simple little sandwich, but face it, anything can go wrong. Mine was just right, the manager served me at the front register and was super nice and grateful for my visit, and I will surely visit this location again!!
