The food here is healthy and creative. I've been here for breakfast and lunch and both are great. Traditional options as well as healthier options. And all are delicious.

Great start for the day! The French Toast and all the fruit beautifully "piled" on top can't be beat - and our server was very pleasant and she didn't rush us. Also try the breakfast tacos.

We visited this restaurant for breakfast and it was excellent. I had the avacado toast and my husband had the trifecta which was eggs and a waffle. Great coffee which we could keep refilled with our own carafe on the table. Great attentive service also.

Whether you go weekend or weekday you'll wait. It's always busy. They should have allowed more space in their restaurant for sitting while waiting for a table. The service is friendly and quick despite the crowds. You get fresh tasting breakfasts and lunches. I especially like the 2 for you. They'll accommodate special requests.

We made reservations. Our table was not ready. We stood around for an extra 15 minutes and they had to put us at a booth, not table. Table still had people for our large party, of 7. Waitress was awesome, the omelette was average tasting. Nothing too exciting. Not worth a trip back. Cute place, average priced and needs more... More

Great place for breakfast. The environment is a plus but the food is what will bring you back. Delicious. This place is easy to miss. I have driven by it for years without realizing it was here.

We had breakfast here last Sunday morning. We had been to First Watch's one Naples, Florida, location several years ago. When we saw it listed in Trip Advisor for Brookfield, we knew where we were eating. Everything was as good as we remembered. Though there were quite a few waiting to be seated, the hostesses seated us in good time.... More
