“Good food ... bring a sweater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

Love First Watch for breakfast/brunch/lunch. Good variety of healthy choices ... and some great-tasting, not-as-healthy alternatives, like the stellar blueberry pancakes. Kids really enjoy this place. Everything we've ordered has come out perfectly and tasted great. A couple of waitresses are excellent ... and a couple, well, not so much. That can make for a very lengthy meal. And a cold one too. First Watch, like several other restaurants in the area, keeps its AC incredibly low, leaving its waiting customers to freeze to death. When we're picking a place to eat on the run, this place always comes up ... but we pass right by it if we don't have sweatshirts in the car.

“Food was ok - but menu was interesting enough, I'd try it again”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We came around 9a on a Sunday morning, so it was definitely busy and service wasn't stellar but it was ok and was expected being so busy. I ordered the Crepes under the healthy section- these were two crepes with fresh melon, strawberries and mostly bananas rolled up on the inside. They were topped with strawberry yogurt, a side of granola and a lemon poppy muffin. The idea was good, but the yogurt was so sickeningly sweet that it kind of ruined it for me. My husband ordered the Crepe-eggs - which was basically a crepe omelet with avocado, eggs, etc on the inside - also a good idea but lacked any real flavor - he covered it in Cholula and ketchup. My daughter and her friend ordered a pancake and bacon - both were great. The menu is really unique and interesting and we really looked for a few minutes to decide what we wanted because it all looked so good. I think they need some fine tuning on the flavors and they are really on to something. We'd try it again.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

The food was mediocre as was the service. My omelet was cold. They couldn't figure out how to grill a muffin (since they claim to have no toaster). The First Watch in Boca is far superior to this one in Wellington. It was difficult to get the attention of the server. (she was not busy, either)

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

The food was excellent and the price was just right. I got a cobb salad and a grilled turkey sandwich and it was so good. The management is excellent. He is always on top of things and the service is excellent.
