We arrived about 0900 to avoid the crowds, and got a table immediately, but the place was nearly full. Service was great. Food was OK. I had Eggs Benedict. It looked very enticing when brought to our table of 4. It was served on half a slice of sour dough bread, topped with ham (lunch meat type shaved ham) then... More

I have been going for many years and have never had a bad experience It feels very open and bright and is always clean. I love the breakfast choices because they are not all heave and carb filled! One of my favorites is the breakfast parfait!!

I've been here quite a few times over the last several months for breakfast with friends. This last time I had the Nutella French toast was the first time I've really been disappointed in the food. It was really dry and just not very appetizing. However, all of the other times the food has been on point and the service... More

I was seated quickly and received a large fresh cold orange juice - wow. Their eggs benedict were absolutely perfect. I got their classic ham and tomato but their other options look good too. Nobody does fresh hollandaise like First Watch! I come here whenever I get the chance

This weekend was my first visit and we visited a second time before we left. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes, one of the group had the salmon on toast, delicious. So much so that we went back again 2 days later for lunch. The whole grain bread is to die for, again delicious. I will definitely go back.

We ordered French toast which felt soggy and was quite disappointing. The omelette although small was cooked to perfection. The turkey sausages on the other hand was inedible. Service is quick!

Thank you for coming in! While we're glad you enjoyed quick service and a perfectly cooked omelet, it's upsetting to know that you didn't enjoy the French toast or turkey sausage in our restaurant.

Very good, from start to finish. Even the WiFi was excellent. I had the trifecta, with pancake. The pancake I chose was the chocolate chip. Just the right amount of chocolate chips. My wife had 2 pancakes, the banana granola and the blueberry. She said they were excellent. AJ, our waiter, was very prompt and attentive. Highly recommend this place.... More

My husband and I eat here regularly. I think the food has decline in comparison to when it first opened. To keep prices down, portion sizes seem to have decreased. The fruit cup often contains fruit that is under-ripe or over-ripe. However, the salads, egg dishes and breads are reliably tasty and flavorful. The restaurant is also clean. I don't... More

We showed up with 20 on a busy Sunday morning and they handled it quite well, we were seated within 25 minutes, darn good for a unexpected group that size. As others have said the food was enjoyable and the service didn't lack. Not much more to be said.
