Interesting and favorable entrees for breakfast. My absolute favorite is the avocado toast. The coffee is also delicious. They bring a whole pot for your table. Tried the millionaires bacon if they haven't on the specialty menu.

We visited friends in Sarasota and they took us to First Watch for breakfast. We found the food to be exceptional! We all raved about the quality of our meals. The service was great. The servers were friendly and attentive to our needs.
