We went to First Watch for brunch and loved it. Literally every single bite! The food seemed so fresh and the presentation was great. Our waiter wasn’t our favorite but another waiter who came and cleared our plates made up for the first! We will...More

I had the morning market veg omelet with hollandaise on the side. The holly was a little too lemony for my taste, but the rest of the food was absolutely wonderful. The ingredients tasted fresh and I absolutely love that it was served with greens...More

I have always been satisfied with my order and the service. You have to be careful what time of day you go because you may have to wait in line. That's not really a problem, however, since you can get a self-serve complimentary coffee while...More

Flavors good but not as amazing as menu descriptions. Loved the availability of turkey sausage gravy.

Great breakfast-brunch-lunch place. The food is always fresh, service congenial and willing to make changes to have you get just what you want. You'll have a wait on the weekends, but when you DO get a seat, they won't hurry you along. Creative menu, no...More

We truly enjoy First Watch. The fresh ingredients, frequently changing specials, and friendly service make it worth the wait when there is one. We have been middle of the week/day with hardly any guests, and busiest of holiday mornings. No matter what the service is...More
