We stopped in for breakfast right before heading to the airport and we are glad we did! Food was great and we had great service.

This was a spur of the moment decision to eat here before our trip to Bucsh Gardens. It was incredible and delicious. My whole family was wowed. Not only was everything delicious, but was healthy options!

We ate at the downtown First watch two mornings and the food was hot and delicious. Our server was very nice and wanted to know all about our cruise. First watch is mid-range of pricing but the food is excellent.

What a great way to start out celebrating Mother's Day (today 5/13/2018)--a breakfast at First Watch (our first time there). Everyone was welcoming and friendly, coffee was provided while we waited to be seated. The healthy menu was extensive and the food was hot, delicious...More

Nice healthy choices, gluten free bread. Fresh food. Very busy but seemed to be a local downtown favorite.

After trying to find a typical American breakfast type diner in downtown Tampa and failing, my husband and I tried First Watch. We are happy we tried it. My husband had a Vietnamese inspired pork belly dish. He was pleased! I had the egg sandwich...More

I am so glad we found this place. It was absolutely wonderful and not ordinary. The service was great. The food was delicious and perfect. Menu has so many different things to offer. Price was not expensive, but don't expect cheap. They are not BK.

Visiting Tampa and this restaurant was recommended to us. The interior is super cute and welcoming. The servers were friendly and attentive. The food was amazing. We ordered the Million Dollar Bacon to start and it was delicious. I also had the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes...More

It looks to me as if they do - go on to their website or just google first watch restaurant and it give you all the locations plus the menus!
