My wife and I hadn't been to First Watch in over a year so we decided to have breakfast there this past Wednesday. It wasn't too busy at 10:30am and we got a nice big booth like I prefer. We ordered a Morning Meditation(a great juice blend), two coffees, an order of Avocado Toast, and an order of Pot Roast... More

I had an opportunity to return to First Watch after several years. I must admit the cheddar cheese eggs and Belgium Waffles were just as I remembered...delicious and prepared just right! Bring a friend and try the blueberry pancakes. Go ahead and try it. You'll be glad you do.

Brunch was an exceptional meal. I had the avocado toast with 2 soft eggs and a side of bacon was very pleasing. In stead of coffee, I order the melon cooler (honeydew melon, English cucumber, lemon and agave) was refreshing and crisp! There was not a long waiting list as the turn-around was quick with ample waitress/waiters and serving staff!... More

This is a casual eatery that caters primarily to the local area. But it does seem popular to those folks. I like the pancakes but the menu offers many lunch items. Very casual and no reservation is necessary.

Ate breakfast here this morning and it was wonderful. Ordered the TriFecta and my eggs were done the way I like them. The granola pancake was bigger than the small ones you get in most restaurants and the coffee was great. Our server was cheerful and pleasant and patient while we tried to decide what we wanted. Will go back... More

My son and I stopped in for lunch on a Tuesday, we had not been here before. It was very busy and loud. We waited approximately 20 min for a table. Our food was good but not great. Chocolate chip pancakes and the special salmon cucumber toast w 2 eggs, coffee and hot chocolate. $24 seemed very high to me.... More

The food is amazing here. The staff is very friendly. Everything I have ever order here is top notch and always delicious. I recommend their omelets or hashes from the breakfast side. Large portions.

This location is clean, very friendly and very welcoming. They have some of the nicest servers and the food is great. Complementary coffee while you wait to be seated. We've never had to wait more than 10 minutes.
