Food was great and so were prices. Much better than another broken egg or waffle house. Seriously, just go here. Service was always on point and refills on coffee and water for as long as you sit there. I recommend the elevated egg sandwich and...their pancakes, waffles or French toast!More

Eggs, pancakes, waffles, roasted potatoes, smoked salmon, healthy choices ...... you name a breakfast item, they have it. My eggs Benedict Florentine was perfect ..... soft poached eggs, plenty of sauce, avocado, fresh spinach on toasted ciabitta. Yum My wife's Trifecta breakfast was also right...on. The side of Million Dollar Bacon was very good but not as good as I expected. Definitely a place we will return too.More

Well I chose another stellar breakfast location this morning. We ate at a place called First Watch here in Destin. Tina had a classic egg Benedict which looked and tasted amazing. I had an omelet with freshly roasted crimini mushrooms, bacon, ham and sausage topped...with a homemade sour cream. We also have what this place called million-dollar bacon. Which is my version of our "crack bacon" lol. Which is to say it's a nice good quality bacon talked with brown sugar mixed with a little cayenne pepper and this place even added a drizzle of maple syrup to the top which made it extra yummy!! So far from the two places we've had breakfast there is no shortage of good places to eat breakfast in Destin and Miramar Beach.More

4/7/2021. As a local, First Watch has always been a favorite. However, yesterday wasn’t a good experience. 1 hr 15 minutes from time we entered until we left the restaurant. Portions much smaller than usual. Potatoes and omelet overcooked. Service unacceptable. Short on staff &...we were told that there were only two cooks. Please correct these problems.More

Went with a friend for breakfast. Restaurant is clean, servers friendly and attentive. Food was great. I had Market Hash eggs and she had Pumpkin or Carrot Cake pancakes. Large portions-neither of us finished.

Highly rated so we decided to try this restaurant for breakfast. Arrived around 8 am on Sat and few folks there. However by 9 it was crowded. We were cheerfully greeted by Sherry and seated. Bottomless coffee was immed brought to the table. She gave...us plenty of time to review the menu as were not familiar with it. We started with a bowl of fresh fruit, strawberries, few grapes and blueberries, melon and pineapple. It was very fresh. My wife ordered the frittata rustica and thought it was excellent. It was served with small salad of assorted greens with lemon vinaigrette and toast. The frittata was nice sized and salad a nice touch. I had the smoked salmon-vegetable frittata with the same salad and toast. I looked very hard for the smoked salmon and think found two small pieces. Most pronounced was the roasted tomatoes. Candidly I would not order this again but look for something else. We will probably return while still here but choose something different. While I rated this four stars it was only because of the friendly service by Sherry or would have been three stars.More

This place was top notch restaurant experience, from the moment you walk in and receive an immediate, warm greeting, , to being seated, to the food, and service. Everything about my experience screamed i was quickly going to return to this restaurant. I did exactly...that the next day and had an equally positive meal. I did not realize it was a huge franchise with 900 locations. Somehow they managed to make it feel like a very caring, mom and pop establishimentMore

The menu had many interesting items; most of which were very healthy creations. I had the Farm Stand Breakfast Tacos, which were wonderful. My boyfriend had the Chili Chorizo Omelet with fried potatoes. We split ONE carrot cake and pecan pancake (yes, it was large...enough for both of us.) The service was good and there were other unique menu items we would like to try the next time we visit.More
