My daughters and grandchildren met with me for breakfast at First Watch. I'm a pretty good cook myself so unless I can visit a restaurant that can serve something different or better than I can make in my own kitchen, I don't eat out! First Watch is definitely on top of their game! They have a really good menu with... More

This is our regular place for lunch/brunch while at work. The service and food is consistent and good. The staff is considerate and accommodating. We have ordered a variety of food there--that's another benefit at eating at First Watch.

We thought First Watch would be a fun breakfast stop. Fortunately we found a parking spot a couple blocks away. The restaurant is clearly meant for folks working in the area. That said, our breakfasts were excellent, as was the service. I had one of these salmon Benedicts, and one of my friends had a protein breakfast. Both excellent.

I was seated and tended to very quickly despite the place gradually getting busier. The waiter was a pro and worked very fast to provide me with coffee and water. The chorizo omelette was very good with the potatoes coming out crispy and hot. I was offered a "to go" coffee on the way out. It was an excellent start... More

My family enjoyed our power brunch at First Watch. It has a wonderful selection of breakfast n lunch items for vegetarians with such zen-sounding dish names. I had the greek yogurt with chia n granola n fruits bowl. It was amazing. My daughter enjoyed the English muffin and tomato basil soup. My husband relished his chickichanga! I wish more chains...
