First Watch is a frequent stop for us as the kids enjoy chocolate chip pancakes and the adults can have unique and tasty, health conscious options. I was recently introduced to the kale tonic which is much better than it sounds. Enjoy!

It's such a shame that a place that strives to have such great food has such terrible coffee. The servers are terrific. The decor is nice. It's all there but the cheap, harsh coffee they serve. Any Starbucks coffee would be such an amazing improvement....More
