Offers a “heathy” selection of breakfast and lunch items. Try one of the daily Specials. On street parking or on weekends across the street parking lot. You can’t go wrong with any of their breakfast offerings.

I was in Charleston for business. I wanted a simple, healthy lunch. First Watch was well regarded. I had a wonderful salad and tomato soup lunch combo. It hit the spot. I would definitely recommend.

Ate there on a Saturday. The lunch was adequate. Typical cafe fare. It was crowded but others seemed to enjoy it. No alcohol.
