Very good presentation for those that like out of the ordinary "eggs and toast". The food is plentiful, tasty, and reasonably priced. The service is great. The place is very clean. We eat there at least 3x a week. Add on their muffin of the day, it is great.

We were promptly seated for brunch. Everything was brought to our table as ordered. I had a salad without the chicken and it was a Mexican type. It was large! The dressing was lightly done. I could not stop eating, it was so good! Great breads, soup and menu! I wanted to try the Pumpkin Pancakes!!! Everything was PERFECT! The... More

We come here every week and the staff is always fast and friendly. They have a good menu with all the typical stuff plus some more creative items as well. The food is fresh and good quality. They have a nice selection of juices. They are vegan friendly. Wish they were open for dinner. A little pricey.

Not just the coffee but the unique juices available and the food is above the rest by far. I highly recommend locals and travelers stop by First Watch.

What a great flavor combo! Hubby had lovely grilled sandwich stacked with lean roast beef, Havarti cheese, and greens with horseradish sauce. There food is of consistent good quality, local if...

We frequently eat breakfast or lunch out(also called brunch). One of our favorites is First Watch because it's close and the menu choices are great. Just had to write this review because for some time I have been gettiing the Roast Beef & Havariti sandwich. It has become my all time favorite. Tender slices of R.B. on sourdough toasted bread...
