“What is happening here?”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

First Watch has always been the place to go for friendly, fast and efficient service but this was not the case on my last visit. The server never introduced himself, and was impatient when we were not ready to order when he came to the table. My favorite dish here has always been the Eggs Bendict Florentine. Today it was sub par. The english muffin was hard to cut and chew. The hollandaise sauce was over salted. But worst of all the hash brown potatoes were under cooked and not brown at all. Sent them back, and the second portion was still not crisp the way hash browns should be. Will have to think twice about returning to this First Watch location again.

“Wonderful fresh food”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We recently went to First Watch intending to have lunch. However, the breakfast items were so enticing that half our party ordered breakfast foods. We all really enjoyed the meals including muffins, "egg crepes" with fresh fruit, oatmeal with cinnamon, apples and bananas, chocolate chip pancakes and crispy fresh salads.
Our out of town guests and we locals were all pleased with our casual and delicious meals, where the waitress encouraged us to personalize our choices with substitutions or variations.
