We went to First Watch for brunch after church one Sunday. Everything we ordered was very good. The Belgian Waffle, Farmhouse skillet Hash, Bacado Omelette, and BLTE were all delicious. I wish I could remember the name of our server because she was fantastic. We never had an empty drink, waited more than a minute for a request, and never... More

I chose the pick two that is half sandwich & salad or soup. The sandwich is roast beef and the salad is honey pecan chicken that I ordered. The food is greatly delicious!

This is another consistently good place for breakfast and lunch. I love their sausage links! They are flexible with substitutions, I like that. Only downfall is it always has a wait list unless you go at an off time. Both breakfasts and lunches are good. Food is always fresh.

I have been a fan of First Watch and a patron for 20 years. It just seems to be going down hill. I ordered a ham and cheddar cheese omelette with an extra egg. The waitress asked if I wanted the new ham and Gruyere omelette, and I said "no". When my order came, it was the ham and Gruyere.... More

This was our first visit to the Beechmont First Watch. We went on a Thursday afternoon about 12:30 and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, so I have no idea what a weekend is like. First Watch is located in a small strip shopping area and has a parking lot, but it was really hard to find... More

The three of us loved our selections. Lots of choices. We thought we would beat the lunch rush by meeting up at 11:45 on a weekday and the waiting area was already packed. 25 minute wait. Not able to take First Watch gift cards - system down.

We stopped in on a Sunday morning. Suggest you get seated by 10 a.m. as many folks started to arrive. I had eggs and pancake combo and wife had the Greek Fetish Omelet which was extremely tasty. Great menu selection for those seeking healthier food options rather than a plain old pancake house. Seated promptly and service was fast and... More
