First Watch is very popular with the locals. It's a tradition for out of town family members. I think the food is okay, but many people absolutely think it's the best in town.More

Very nice breakfast. If you want something a little different come to First Watch. If you want the standard blah go to a chain breakfast place. Bright, charming and service with a smile.

Overrated. The food was not that good. The bacon was great but pricey. The food is overpriced and over exaggerated.
