We stopped here for the first time to grab a late breakfast or early lunch, depending on our interest in the menu choices. There were lots of good options so we'll have to return! I had the avocado toast, and my husbsnd, a very picky breakfast critic, selected the trifecta. He was not disappointed, nor was I. The service was... More

I lived in Phoenix for 30 years back when. When First Watch came to town I fell in love. Been gone 16 years but any time I'm in town its THE place for breakfast or lunch. This trip had eggs Benedict (can't get them in my little rural town). I do have to ask for them on an English Muffin... More

We really enjoyed all the food at First watch. The sour dough toast was excellent, my wife got a green drink she is still craving, and our omlette's were delicious. I highly recommend this place. The lunch looked good too.

Have visited the "first watch" in winter park FL on numerous occasion and was delighted to see one in Phoenix. Went 2 times for lunch and the shrimp and grits with the southwestern twist was awesome. I have found another recipe for this Florida boy. Anything on the menu is excellent. !

Went here for the first time and we weren't disappointed. The food was farm fresh and so many choices. We all tried different things and we're not disappointed. Service from the waiter was pretty non existent, but the food made up for it.

If you arrive reasonably early in the morning, the wait will be a unnoticeable; eleven-ish becomes competitive. Once inside, an attentive and knowledgeable wait staff takes over and guides you through a delightful menu. I generally have the omelette which is packed full of ham and covered in Gruyere cheese. It's served along with fruit and I always get the... More

After looking at the reviews we decided to go on our way to the game on Sunday. It was a short wait and then we were seated. Our waitress was very prompt and we ordered. The breakfast came in about 5 minutes and we were not disappointed. Everything was hot and very good. We are glad we went and would... More

First time in and we now have a new favorite resturant. Breakfast was excellent. Too much food to finish and the fresh fruit was ripe and varied. We will be back!

There were five us of on Sunday morning about 10 am. We had to wait 15 minutes for a table but once seated the service was quick and the food was good. I had scrambled eggs with sausage links. The eggs were light and very good but the sausage was a bit undercooked. The toast and fresh strawberry preserves were... More

After our early morning flight into Phoenix, we were hungry and after driving around the downtown area, we stopped at First Watch. So glad we did!! Our server, Ana, recommended the multigrain croissant sandwich, and it was delicious. Frittata with turkey sausage, arugula, pesto....
