I loved this place!! Doubting it at first but one look at the menu and you could see why there was a wait on a Sunday morning! The menu was stimulating and tantalizing. I wish I could ordered a couple of items. The place itself is just ordinary and has the feel of a diner. Oh but the food... try... More

We love this place. Went for breakfast and the food was good and very healthy. All meals have the calories alongside the information on the menu. The coffee was good as well. We'll be back whilst we are in the area. Reasonably priced

Large variety on the menu, with lots of fresh and vegetarian selections. Understaffed when I was there, so service was a little slow, but food was terrific. Will definitely go back!

Met my son here for my birthday last month. Got there before the crowd and was seated right away. Coffee, Omelets and the most amazing Bacon ever. Everyone around us seemed to enjoy their meals and all left w smiles on their faces. Very casual, kids and babies welcome. Staff was courteous and prompt. I will definitely be back!

Family Friendly. Lots of healthy options, though I had the French toast Brioche and son had a kids Chocolate Chip Pancake.Both yummy and filling. Staff was very nice and busy. I didn't feel rushed even though there were people waiting. Nice selection of teas.Enjoyed and would go back again if I was in the area again.

Breakfast all day is what brought us to this bright and tasty restaurant. I was quite surprised at such a large selection of the old favorites as well as healthy choices. I had an egg white omelette full of vegetables that was cooked to perfection. I also like individual coffee pots for each table--what a plus!

First Watch is only open until 2pm. When it first opened I went to the restaurant often. The menu has changed little over the years so I go less often now. The service people are always friendly and the food is consistently good. It is also reasonably priced. They use fresh ingredients in all of their dishes.
