Convenient to where I live. Coffee consistently tastes bitter. The day I was there at 10:30 am it was crowded & took awhile to get seated. Maybe 5 people ahead of me and no one greeted us for at least 10 minutes. Bacon was cool and overdone. Pecan pancakes not listed on current menu, had to ask if available. It... More

We went here for Breakfast and found the food to be great. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes and my wife had the breakfast tacos. Both were very good and should be high on you list if you visit. The service was just average and the person taking you name needs to pay more attention we were queued behind a... More

Besides the usual breakfast offerings there were lots of interesting fresh veggies added. Plus a lovely salad accompanied many of the meals. It was lightly dressed and went surprisingly well with my omelet.

Good Food and service. You may have to wait to get a table, but it is well worth the wait. As the food is excellent. Our server Bethany was awesome and had a great sense of humor. I had the pancakes for lunch - awesome.

We took a chance that we would get seated fairly quickly and we were. The food was great and so was the service. Coffee is always hot and fresh. Waffle was light and delicious, bacon crisp and eggs perfect. The toast was so good I bought a loaf of the multi-grain bread to take home.

Our family enjoyed everything about our breakfast at First Watch, except it was very loud inside the restaurant. They seemed to have many unique options for breakfast, but also offered regular breakfast foods.

First Watch is a win every time! I am never disappointed with my choices. The pancakes are top notch. I also find that they are willing to make changes to the dish in order to fit my taste. I enjoy coming here for the atmosphere as well.

If menus featuring quinoa, items sweetened by carrot, and breakfast piled high with arugula are your thing, this is your place. If waiting for an hour to eat breakfast is your thing, this is your place. I had the brioche French toast. It was very dry and tasteless.
