I love to eat First Watch. They offer lots of healthy food options and the portions are huge. I rarely can eat the whole meal when I order. It closes early and I wish sometimes it was open later but that's the only thing I...More

The dining environment is very plain. Lots of windows, but a very dull view of the street with plenty of cars. I felt like I was dining in a used car lot. Food is good. However, completely forgettable. No reason to come back.

I was blown away by how good the food was. I really expected it to be "tone-y", overhyped, over priced, etc. But it was so very, very good. I'm excited to go back.

We stopped at First Watch for a late Sunday breakfast. There was a 35 minute wait but it was well worth it. Had the pancake with cinnamon chips and boy it was good.

Had breakfast here before going to a Chief's game. We timed it right and got in before the Sunday rush. Ordered something different this time - salmon and veggie frittata. It was good. The salmon was delish. Best of all, I wasn't hungry until after...More
