We go here a lot and I've written other reviews. We certainly like to try other places, but we keep going back to the places we love to eat and First Watch is one of our favorites. We L-O-V-E the fresh fruit crepes and Power Wrap (breakfast burrito). The kids like to change it up a bit, but we can't stop getting the same things over and over again because they are so good. The breakfast wrap has quartered crimini mushrooms that really provide something to bite into vs. the normal sliced mushrooms that you hardly notice. The "homemade" granola is awesome on the crepes. The pecan cranberry pancakes are to die for. Very family friendly. We usually go on Sundays and there is usually a 5 to 15 minutes wait.

Service: Very good. The staff is so warm and inviting. Very low turn over, so you get to know the staff over time.

Food: We have ordered a few different things, but keep coming back to a couple of favorites. Have never had any thing bad or even mediocre here. Always a 4 or 5 out of 5 on each item.

Atmosphere: Pretty normal breakfast/lunch place. Nothing spectacular, but very nice.

I recommend First Watch often and most people have never heard of it. It is truly and hidden gem.

First Watch offers a wide variety of menu items, much more interesting than the standard breakfast fare. When we visited, I chose the monthly special: Ricotta pancakes with lemon curd. It was astoundingly delicious.

Wonderful breakfast restaurant. Great selection of menu items including omelettes. Made a couple of changes to the omelette I ordered with no problems! Server was friendly and very attentive. A nice, pleasant place to go for good food.
