Surprisingly good food. Unique and tasty. We are from the west coast, and would love to see this chain on our coast.

This is a great spot for a quick or long breakfast near the Dayton Mall. I would recommend sitting in a corner booth when you walk in on the left. Very good spot. I like their protein breakfast options as well!

I must begin by stating that breakfast is a big deal to both my husband and I . Except when we are out of town we choose not to go out for breakfast. I enjoy making everything from pancakes, Eggs Benedict, omelets etc.... Looking for a place to have breakfast in a area that we are unfamiliar with is always... More

I had not been to First Watch for several months. There is a new menu and they have eliminated my favorite dish. Service was ok, but I had to ask for a refill on my soft drink. That is always the way I gauge the quality of service.

Tis a day with a rain forecast. No matter the location, First Watch is first class. My SUV requires the annual Ziebart, and we observe the extremely light traffic near the Dayton Mall at 9:15 AM.

I really like the food here and meet friends who have a group meet on Saturday mornings. The staff knows the group and treats us very good. I ordered the cranberry-walnut pancakes and potatoes cooked well done and they were great. The coffee also is very good. I recommend this restarant. There is also one at Town and Country shopping...

What a find! My family and I enjoyed 2 breakfasts at First Watch on the Colonel Glen Highway in Fairborn. The first time, we walked right in and were seated promptly. However, as one would expect, our second visit on Father's Day was very crowded with 30-45 minute wait. Nonetheless, Service was superb! Our Server arrived as soon as we... More
