After spending two days in a Disney Environment we were very happy to find this healthy restaurant. The portions are good and so are the prices. The food is fresh, made to order and the services was excellent. We do recommend this restaurant for health conscious people.

This is an amazing breakfast focused restaurant. You receive a quality and healthy meal, unlike many breakfast restaurants. The place is always busy so show up early and enjoy!

I visited this restaurant with a colleague for our lunch hour. We were seated immediately. The restaurant was busy - but not overwhelmingly so. Our server was attentive, quick and very friendly. I'm a pretty picky eater, but the menu offered a TON of appetizing options. I ordered 2 pecan pancakes - they were seriously the best pancakes I've ever had from a restaurant. They were also HUGE. I probably would have been fine with a single pancake. I also ordered the turkey sausage links, which were a really nice portion size. I was able to order sweetened green tea, which was a nice option. I will definitely return to First Watch, as I'm pretty much obsessed with those pancakes now and would recommend this specific restaurant to someone looking for nice breakfast food in the area.

Our first visit to First Watch. It had been recommended but was suggested we go early on a weekend. We arrived at 9 AM on Saturday and only had a short wait. Seated in a comfortable, friendly dining area with roomy booths and big windows. We were greeted immediately by our server, Alex. Coffee and water were served and menus delivered. The variety of menu options made the decisions tough with so many appetizing selections to choose from. All four of us picked different selections and they were delivered hot, attractively displayed, and in a timely manner. The food was tasty, healthy and in large but not excessive portions. The conversations took a definite pause while the food disappeared. Personally, the Key West Crepeggs with the addition of a baked pumpkin muffin was very good! The consensus was of a great breakfast! The only weak point was that the coffee in the thermal carafe could have been a bit hotter. As soon as that was mentioned to the waiter, it was refilled! I suspect that is not an uncommon issue with thermal coffee pots as I've noticed it at other breakfast establishments. Kudos to Alex for his cheerful responsiveness. The coffee was better than average!

Called into First Watch today for a late breakfast, I had the Eggs Benedict Florentine, and I have to say it was the nicest Eggs Benedict I have had in a long time. Service was fast ,coffee was good and fresh and the wait staff friendly and efficient.. This restaurant is only open until 2pm or maybe 3pm.
