This place used to be better but the food in my last three visits has been just terrible. The French Toast was soggy and leaden, the open face chicken salad sandwich was on this wheat bread as dry as dust and my husband's Salmon frittata...More

First Watch offers fresh and healthy breakfasts that aren't boring or overpriced. The service is brisk and cheerful; the menu, varied and fun. Note: when they say "two eggs," they mean "two relatively small eggs": you might want to pay the upcharge for an extra.

This restaurant's menu is largely leaning towards breakfast offerings, but they are excellent. I've eaten here quite a few times and never had a bad meal. It is busy for that reason for sure.

Food is very fresh, emphasizing farm to fork. Waitstaff very friendly and always checking on you--my ice tea glass was never empty. Kind of funky but in a fun way. Overall, a very good choice for breakfast or lunch.
