Ordered French toast, excellent! Bacon was just like I like. Husband had pumpkin pancakes which he had been craving. Liked along with the sausage. Great coffee! Home run on this choice.

The service was very good and friendly except the waitress dropped my knife into my friends breakfast. She said, "It only has a little sour cream on it (laugh)". The food looked fresh but was cold and unappetizing. I was a guest and didn't complain but it I had been alone, I would have refused to pay for it.

Monday morning breakfast with me wife. It was quiet, service was efficient and the food quality was excellent. Best breakfast food I've had in Indy this year. Fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection and good coffee to boot.

I am stretching because I love other First Watch restaurants in the chain. The food was OK. I had the special of the day, breakfast tacos, which were not so special. Great waiter but something seemed off at this location.

Great fresh fare offered from 7 am to 2:30 pm daily. Multiple location. My mom frequents one in Carmel, Indiana. Great way to start the day! Love that they gave us coffee to go! Highly recommend!

Over an hour to get my food. Our party of 25 received individual tickets. Eggs were dry, potatoes were cooked a little above raw. Cashier was argumentative telling me it was my responsibility to let him know I didn't enjoy my experience. Lost a customer, and hopefully this place is shuttered soon.

Waited 45 minutes before I flagged down a worker to check on my carry out order. I had ordered the bacon and onion hash. Was told that they had given my food to someone else and they would have to remake it. The manager was very polite and reimbursed me for my food. He redeemed my first experience at First... More
