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....

Friendliest service I have encountered in a while ! My friend got pancakes - excellent. I got a quinoa-fruit-coconut milk-granola bowl, a new innovation which is offered seasonally - too bad, it was very, very good. Coffee was decent, as well. If you are in the neighborhood, First Watch presents a high quality breakfast at an affordable price.

I had an appointment at St Joseph Hospital at 1 pm so I looked for a place nearby for an early lunch. As soon as I came in I was seated at a large communal table (6 ) at the entrance. Very soon Tamara a very charming waitress came to take my order. Avocado toast, I chose all wheat instead... More

Great atmosphere, and wonderful breakfast choices.Fresh, vibrant, delicious. Great service too. Would be nice if they served Bloody Mary's and/or Mimosa's........ that would get them a perfect score from me!
