We enjoy breakfast, and/or lunch at First Watch. Everything is fresh, and delicious. If you haven't tried it, I would recommend it! Delicious eggs Benedict (my favorite), omelets, sandwiches, soup. Try it, you'll like it

four of us ladies went here for a late breakfast this week, the choices are great, not what is found at other breakfast restaurants. They will make you a healthy smoothie for breakfast. We all liked our choices, the staff are friendly, quick, competent.
