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!

This old chestnut has been around for decades, and was a reliable but uninspired breakfast spot (and lunch--but mostly breakfast). It has transformed into a very hip and interesting spot with unusual and delicious food--avocado smash on toast! lemon zest pancakes! seasonal veggie fritatta! And superb coffee. Well worth a visit.

Love this place. Always try to eat here at least once when I'm in town. In addition to your traditional American breakfast foods, they have healthy eats. I had seasonal squash soup and a kale/apple fresh squeezed juice. The waitress was friendly and on top of our needs w/o us having to ask. And, when you enter the restaurant you... More

Stopped here after a night in Phoenix having visited First Watch restaurants in Florida previously. Menu as ever was extensive. Great juices, very tasty take on a traditional eggs benedict and the pancakes were fantastic according to my wife and daughter. Great service and a nice cosy interior compared with other First Watches we have visited. A good find.
