“Excellent Breakfasts - Wide variety of unusual dishes!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

First Watch caters to its customers! Many different options for breakfast are available: excellent french toast & delicate fruit crepes (filled with a strawberry cream - very filling!) were just a couple orders at our table. Watching your calories or just want healthy options? Then this is the place to come! The Tri-Athlete is a delish egg-white omelet with tomatoes, onions, green chiles, cremini mushrooms, and salsa, plus an English Muffin served dry, and an icy-chilled fresh fruit cup! I ask for mine with no green chiles, and when I asked for it to be cooked dry, the server informed me that they can cook it with Pam! Highly unusual for any restaurant! Wish more would offer that option (instead of the usual swimming in butter or oil). Muffins are melt-in-your-mouth delicious and fresh daily. Excellent coffee in a pot on your table. Open for breakfast and lunch only. Prices run approximately $7 - $11 per person. Service is excellent and prompt to respond to any requests! Highly recommend!

“Tasty breakfast”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

My husband and I were staying at the nearby Cambria Suites Polaris hotel, and we went to this First Watch restaurant 3 mornings out of 4 for breakfast; the food is very good, the menu is large and varied, the service is friendly and excellent, and the restaurant is very clean.

“Interesting breakfast and lunch options”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

I had carrot cake pancakes when I visited. My family members had lunch items of a blt and salad. I will probably get a lunch item next time we visit. It is expensive but the food is great, tasty, and the staff are nice.
