Top quality fresh healthy breakfast spot. Try any of the omlets.... Or for something unique...try the Avocado toast meal. A whole fresh avocado spread thick on house made whole grain toasted bread. Served with two eggs. Tasty superfood. Pair that with one of the fresh fruit juice creations.

Wife and I stayed overnight in the Beavercreek area and turned to TripAdvisor for recommendations on breakfast, WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED! The restaurant was part of a strip mall that sits behind Texas Roadhouse and Bob Evans. It was a little hidden from the highway but our GPS found it for us. The waiting staff was very friendly and efficient,... More

We arrived a little before 9 pm Saturday and just beat the morning rush. The food is good quality for a breakfast establishment. Service was quick. They have a kids menu as well.

Sometimes you have to wait a little while on a crowded Sunday. Well worth the wait. Food is delicious and delivered out to you promptly.

Stopped in for breakfast on Sunday morning. Had about a 10 minute wait in a fairly claustrophobic waiting area. All the reviews seemed to be bearer out: great service and fantastic food selections. My advice: go out on a little bit of a limb and try something different. Everything I saw looked Delish.

Arrived with just one party ahead of us. Waited, saw people come in after and get seated. Waited longer, more people came in, got seated. Discovered by accident (heard one of the parties state this) that they booked online. These people took precedence over walk ins. We left, went across the parking lot to Bob Evans.

I would give First Watch 5-stars just based off of their staff. From walking in to checking out, everyone was extremely nice and had a smile on their face. Now, the food. I had the eggs Benedict, and it was exactly how it should taste. The potatoes that came with it were also good. They also give you a thermos... More

Looking for a good breakfast or lunch spot. If you are near Beavercreek or Fairborn or Wright-Patterson AFB Ohio, then First Watch is the place. The food & service are excellent. The menu is ok, but somewhat limited. Not enough you will notice the first hand full of times you go there - so, does that really count? If you... More

Loved the food and the smiles here. Saturday was our first time, long line but they were very fast at clearing tables and getting people seated.

A wonderful menu with lots of healthy options that are packed full of flavor. Seating can get tight so call ahead. While wheelchair accessible some areas would be tights. A little pricy but you get great quality fare. They always have excellent specials! My favorite (from the menu) are the Wheat germ pancakes which are huge!!
