From the friendly staff to the amazing food,this should be on your list of best places for breakfast /lunch. The Croque Madame is absolutely wonderful, but you really can't go wrong with anything from the menu. The specialty juice drinks are great too!!

We have visited First Watch for breakfast twice now and loved it both times. The food is fresh and delicious. The wait staff is friendly and the service is very good. Try one of their juice combos.....so good.

When visiting friends on our departure day, they took us here for breakfast saying that it was their regular sunday after church place. We do not have this chain in our area, but we were impressed with the breakfast selection. Omelets look particularly good, one of us had the Eggs Benedict, and the pancakes are enough to fill one up.... More

My first time to First Watch, and I'm so glad that someone recommended it to me. It's a huge choice of breakfast items, both very healthy stuff and not-so-healthy. I thoroughly enjoyed my Steel Cut Oatmeal, served piping hot with all the fixin's -- just delicious. Coffee was also very good, and service topped the charts. So friendly and good.... More

Have eaten here several times, with several locations in the area. Seating is plentiful, but fills up quickly on weekends. Great place to grab breakfast.

This visit was after my wife and 2 of her friends ran a 10k race a couple blocks away. Perfect after race meal for them. Love this franchise which normally when you say franchise it has bad connotations. Not here. They use fresh produce and try to use locally grown products which help support the independent providers business. Great! Today... More

Excellent menu with a nice variety of selections (heathy alternatives). Something for everyone. Fresh ingredients. Excellent laying of flavors tantalizing the tastebuds. Warm and welcoming staff who were non-judgmental with multiple orders. Never heard the lamented phrase "No Problem"!
