Everything you would want in a breakfast. Fast and friendly service. Excellent food. Coffee better than most. Price fair for the quality.

Great atmosphere, and wonderful breakfast choices.Fresh, vibrant, delicious. Great service too. Would be nice if they served Bloody Mary's and/or Mimosa's........ that would get them a perfect score from me!

This old chestnut has been around for decades, and was a reliable but uninspired breakfast spot (and lunch--but mostly breakfast). It has transformed into a very hip and interesting spot with unusual and delicious food--avocado smash on toast! lemon zest pancakes! seasonal veggie fritatta! And superb coffee. Well worth a visit.

Love this place. Always try to eat here at least once when I'm in town. In addition to your traditional American breakfast foods, they have healthy eats. I had seasonal squash soup and a kale/apple fresh squeezed juice. The waitress was friendly and on top of our needs w/o us having to ask. And, when you enter the restaurant you... More

Stopped here after a night in Phoenix having visited First Watch restaurants in Florida previously. Menu as ever was extensive. Great juices, very tasty take on a traditional eggs benedict and the pancakes were fantastic according to my wife and daughter. Great service and a nice cosy interior compared with other First Watches we have visited. A good find.

The food here is very good, but I find it over-priced for breakfast and the service was not great. I could justify the higher prices if the eggs and meat were organic pasture-raised but they are not. It's not likely that I will come back.

The front desk at my hotel told us about this amazing restaurant. My mom and I had breakfast there with great tea selection, fresh juices and a huge selection of breakfast options. Definitely recommend
