The food was great. I had a fresh fruit drink, and it was delicious. I also loved the ambiance. The salad was delicious, and I think they flew the fruit in from an island-yum

I love the healthy choices and awesome customer service. The food and tea are always fresh. I wish there was one closer to my home in South Austin. 💙😋

I think I have tried just about every breakfast restaurant in downtown Cincinnati. First watch is the best I have found. Service is good -- friendly, helpful. The menu provides a lot of choices. And, best of all, the food really is good.

Met some coworkers here for a late breakfast meeting. Large, inviting restaurant with friendly service and a delicious menu. My avocado toast and kale tonic are my go-to here. What a delicious way to start the day!
