“Popular spot because of great food and impeccable service”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

This is a popular breakfast/brunch/lunch place with the locals because of their great food and aim to please service. The staff is so friendly and the food is wonderful. Their pancakes and waffles are huge, crepe-eggs are delicious, as well as sandwiches & salads. Deciding on one item will be your only dilemma. That means you just have to keep coming back.

“WORTH EVERY MINUTE AND PENNY”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

SOOO DELICIOUS! They find the sweetest people to serve there so you can never get mad at them. The food is beyond amazing and will specialize the meal to how you would like it. I always make complicated changes, but they are more than willing to handle it. The prices are good and affordable. There are really great healthy options, or you can customize a healthy egg white omelet yourself.I would recommend it for families, kids, or anyone who just wants a delicious breakfast. TRY THEIR PANCAKES!

Thank you, Sean H! We are so happy you are so impressed with our fresh, tasty food and friendly service. And we agree, you always need a pancake...even if it's one to share with the rest of the table! Hope to see you again soon.

“Great Pancakes”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

My first visit to First Watch this morning--it was all good but the giant pancake was the best part! Service was outstanding, food was too, and very reasonable prices.

“Great Lunch!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Liked - everything! Service was fast and accurate (even though they were very busy). Food was fresh and well prepared. Nice variety of offerings (breakfast and lunch only). Large servings. Check out the specials! I had 'Bacado' omelette (bacon, avocado & cheese omelette with salsa & sour cream - along with large serving of well prepared diced potatoes & english muffin. Husband tried the quinoa & veggie dish which he said was surprisingly wonderful! We will return to this great breakfast/lunch find!
