Healthy and traditional place for breakfast and lunch. Quality has been consistently good at all locations. Good service, great location across from keystone mall. Love the huge pancakes. One is enough.

I rarely order omelets out because they are usually brown and dry. I've been to First Watch several times with excellent quality of food so I decided to gamble. I ordered the ham and Gerard cheese. Best omelet ever! Perfectly cooked with good balance between the cheese and meat. Enjoyed the lightly dressed salad that came with it. My next... More

Simple, modern minimalistic approach. With a organic feel and a good choice of healthy foods. If you judge a place by the amount of people there this is the place, hopping but not too busy not to get a seat. Beside the broken seat, calcium stained jugs and dirty feeling floor, great place.

I stop at this restaurant twice each year on a business trip, and I am grateful to have such a healthy option on the road. Staff are quick to serve, and the food is top-quality. They even have kale and quinoa on the menu!

I ordered eggs Benedict and although it did have eggs and hollandaise sauce, it came on some strange bread, tomato and avocado. It was quite nice, but not what I was expecting and could have been better. I also had the beetroot juice which, again, was OK, nothing special. It came straight out of a bottle.

I had the "chickichanga" and it was perfect. Weird name, but tasty. The service is friendly, and the coffee is bottomless.
