while we were seated uncomfortably close to a couple, which took away from the overall experience, the food was still quite good and made for a great place to eat out, especially if you'd like something not so ordinary

Service was great! I enjoyed a wonderful egg white, vege & goat cheese omelet. Would visit First Watch again in a heartbeat!

We recently went for breakfast with friends. I wanted the “shrooms” which is no longer on the menu. They gladly prepared it for me and I was one happy camper.

Had very friendly and helpful service. Picked the Cobb salad and 1/2 roast beef and Havarti sandwich from the 2 for You choices. They were excellent. Looking forward to trying other items on the menu.

We had the good fortune of having some of our Eastern European affiliates drop in for visit and review of our plans. This was a great place to start the morning. Freindly people and very nice preprations.

Stopped here for breakfast to get a break from the hotel continental breakfast. Lots of healthy options. Everything we had was very good. A little on the pricey side but the food and the service were outstanding. Will definitely come back when in the area.

no reservations. But they do have an app called "no wait" that is very helpful to put yourself on the list and see how long the wait is.
