Great place for breakfast, lots of very unique items on the menu. Million dollar bacon is very good. The elevated egg sandwich with oven roasted potatoes is a perfect combination. Very busy on weekends around 10 am til around 2 but worth the wait.

We were here on a busy Saturday late morning. 15 minute wait - way less than anticipated. We told our server, Tom, that it was our first visit to a First Watch. He gave us plenty of time to review the menu and decide. I...More
