I think I have tried just about every breakfast restaurant in downtown Cincinnati. First watch is the best I have found. Service is good -- friendly, helpful. The menu provides a lot of choices. And, best of all, the food really is good.

Met some coworkers here for a late breakfast meeting. Large, inviting restaurant with friendly service and a delicious menu. My avocado toast and kale tonic are my go-to here. What a delicious way to start the day!
