This place has always been crowded but management needs to do better here. Many empty tables while people are waiting. Food is very average. It used to have distinctive flavors, now it's very generic.More

Food is decent but service is extremely poor. We waited 45 minutes even though there were numerous tables available. Management of this location is horrible. It makes me want to stay away from First Watch in the future. Sad because other locations are nice.More

I don't seek out organic, new-agey foods, but this place is really good. I had a apple-kale-cucumber juice (what?) that was excellent and hit the spot. The eggs benedict was pretty much perfect. It was topped with lightly dressed arugula, which cut the richness of...More
