We made two trips to First Watch at Crocker Park during our recent visit to Cleveland. We loved the menu and enjoyed all the food we ordered. Service the first time was competent and friendly. The second time we visited, our waitress acted as if she couldn't wait for us to leave. Really a bit bewildering.

Thank Dlizbeth

Dlizbeth - Thank you for both of your visits! We are very happy you enjoyed delicious food both times. However, it is upsetting to hear our service missed the mark during your second visit and we sincerely apologize. This is not what you should expect from us and we will seriously address your concerns. We hope to see you again very soon!

We ate here several times over the course of a few days and we were very pleased each time. The menu isn't too big, but everything on it is wonderful, especially their breakfast items. Their pancakes are huge (definitely big enough to split)! They are very tasty too. Their waffles are a bit smaller than the pancakes, but are amazing. Their granola and yogurt dish is wonderful and very filling! Even though they were very busy, we had great service. Definitely the place to go!

Many delectable choices for vegetarians & meat eaters, too. Love the Eggs Benedict Florentine (aka veg. style) with Spinach, Avocado & Tomato, the Floridian French Toast & also, the Fresh Fruit Crepes are excellent! Check the blackboard for specials which are always tasty as well. It can get pretty busy, though so be prepared to wait.

Just don't order omlets. I think they are made with that liquid, from the gallon, egg paste. Everything else is so tasty and the coffee tastes like coffe.

First Watch provides a great place to meet friends for breakfast on the weekends. Unless you arrive early, there is likely to be a wait. Friendly service and lots of coffee refills. I like that they do not seem to mind if you linger over your 2nd or 3rd cup of coffee (though I am sure that this contributes to the wait).

The food here is good but not really anything special.

Accessibility: terrific after you find someone to hold the door (the door is reasonably wide but I did not notice any button to automatically open it.
