What a wonderful breakfast/brunch selection at this restaurant! My Eggs Benedict with tomato, avocado & spinach were awesome! Coffee is also excellent.

Their omelets are really good. Still find it strange that they serve with a salad. I always substitute hash browns. Service was good and food always seems very fresh and healthy.

After eating at 4-5 different First Watch restaurants, I'm always left with the same feeling...why did I just pay that much for that meal? Honestly, the eggs are only OK and food overall somewhat bland for my taste. What really gets me though is the...More
