My wife and I ate there after having some tests at a nearby hospital. They were quite busy but our orders were taken and delivered in a timely manner. They have a nice mixture of breakfast and lunch items that are probably more on the healthy side than many of their breakfast competitors. They use a lot of avocado as... More

If I could eat here every day I would, what a great way to start the day! The kale tonic and avocado toast is absolutely delicious and my kids love the skillet hash!

Good food. Getting busy by 8 am. As a solo customer not the best service. Prefer to visit as a couple. Daryll Rouse

Breakfast out is always a treat, and First watch did not disappoint. A carafe of coffee on the table to wake us up, and a terrific assortment of breakfast items on the menu guaranteed each of us found our perfect start to the day. Beautiful oatmeal presentation with fresh fruit, delicious egg sandwich!

My wife and I visited First Watch around lunch. But the description of this dish made us switch from our normal. We were not disappointed. We both thought it was great. We love this place even more and have a new favorite dish. It's a lot to eat but it went great with the side of bacon we split

First time at this First Watch however the quality is consistent at all their locations. Met a customer here for a breakfast meeting. It was his first time at any First Watch. Said the coffee was great and the omelet was very tasty. My eggs were cooked as I ordered them and the ham steak was delish. Toni did a... More

Food was mediocre at best, service was poor. I don't mind a long wait, but the food just didn't taste good and portions were small.

Stopped at First Watch for a quick lunch. I always amazed how healthy and at the same time tasty their food is. Great deal for the money, portions are not oversized, so you can still breath after you leaving this restaurant.

My wife and I have decided that First Watch is one of our favorite places to eat. We especially enjoy eating there after church on Sundays.
