Arrived at 11am on Sunday (Christmas eve) and was going to be a (15) to (20) minute wait. However, we sat immediately in the community table. Server was prompt and food was so very, very good.

Visiting Tampa and was recommended this Little Gem. Went early on a Tuesday morning to beat the crowd as it can get very busy. Everything was fresh and healthy. Wish we had this chain in PA!

The service was really good, the kids menu has nice choices and the food is fresh. Lots of healthy choices and the atmosphere is pleasant. My chicken avocado chop salad and Market veggie sandwich were delicious.

First Watch is good for breakfast. Lots of healthy and organic options. Good food that’s fresh. Not outstanding food. Device was quick and friendly. Atmosphere is really unique and comfortable. I would definitely go back.
