My wife and I had a weekend getaway to Charleston. Based on TripAdvisor’s recommendation we tried First Watch as it was only 2 blocks away and within walking distance. It was worth the walk! Their eggs were the best I have had in a long...More

Wow! One of the best breakfasts I’ve ever had! The atmosphere is nothing to scream about. A simple storefront and tables inside but the food! Wow! Interesting combinations and amazing flavor. I highly recommend!

Really good for breakfast. Good for lunch too. I'm picky about my scrambled eggs and they are usually perfect here. They have lots of unusual items also... not just the usual bacon and eggs.

First time visitors will be coming back for the million dollar bacon! Hardwood smoked Bacon covered in brown sugar, black pepper, cayenne and maple syrup. The special was Hacienda hash that day which was a big portion. We all enjoyed everything from the avocado toast...More

This is a long established well known and respected restaurant always full and filled with fresh and delicious breakfast items. I particularly love the avocado toast that is more than a generous portion for the price. A fund place to meet and greet.

You can go basic breakfast or kick it up a notch with something more exotic , Lemon pancakes are my favorite.
