If you want a good breakfast, interesting menu, friendly service all at a reasonable price this is the place to go! The food is fresh, well prepared and the staff always makes things write! My favorite breakfast is the Banana Crunch Pancakes and I dare anyone to eat more then two. The restaurant is almost always busy so I suggest... More

This chain specializes in breakfast and lunch and closes in the afternoon. They offer fresh and different choices that you won't find elsewhere. Signature juices, everything you can imagine for breakfast and healthy also. Nice lunch offerings and reasonable prices.

I always look forward to breakfast at First Watch ... wonderful eggs for my mother and I've had the chia breakfast bowl special on several occasions ... also pancakes and waffles are top-notch (although they don't offer pure maple syrup). This time we were there for lunch and their roasted veggie sandwich on delicious, whole grain seed bread was quite... More

Been several times for breakfast and lunch over a period of 8 years. Nothing special about the service or the food. Just good ordinary food.

I'm in Florida for 13 weeks as a contract nurse, and have been looking for a good breakfast place. Finally, I have found one. The toast is divine, full of whole grains cooked to perfection. The eggs, put the order, were just right. The home fries or seasoned well. The bacon is a little over crispy for my liking, so... More

The menu is so varied it's difficult to know what to order. There are a lot of very "different" things on offer and they all look wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast experience. Food and service were great.

This is the best breakfast/lunch restaurant in the world. Their menu is very diverse and everything, and I mean everything is delicious. It's like every dish is made with love. Every time we go, we talk to other people and they all agree that "First Watch" is the "bomb!" The servers are so friendly - I don't know where they... More

We love First Watch when we want to splurge on a big breakfast, but you can get a simple and a healthy breakfast here as well. Our favorite is the eggs with bacon and a pecan pancake. Definitely plan to go home and sleep after that breakfast, but it's very good. You can tell the eggs are fresh. If you... More
