If you love a health breakfast you will enjoy this café. Only good nutritional ingredients used in the preparation of their meals. I had the eggs benedict, which was served with a salad, yes a salad for B'fast...you have to ask for the breakfast potatoes. Will definitely be back, prices are reasonable $8-12.00.

First Watch restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes for breakfast, brunch and lunch. I had the frittata rustica during a recent visit and it was very good. My wife had the French toast. The service was friendly and attentive. The facility is clean and inviting.

Visited First Watch today. This was not my first time to go there nor the first time I've ordered biscuits and gravy. This time when they brought the order it appeared to be biscuits with chunks of turkey sausage swimming in brown water. I've seen dog food that looked more appetizing. My waiter had the kitchen remake the item, which... More

I have tried a variety of items on their menu including the avocado toast, the elevated egg sandwich, omelets and bowls. Generally I choose items without meat, however, on our last visit I had the elevated egg sandwich which has bacon on it. it was delicious! I got fruit instead of potatoes. Everything I've had has been very good. My... More

Too much California for me. Everything had either avocado or sun dried tomatoes. Not enough regular omelettes. More for ladies. Pens at checkout have flowers on them. Juice was a little expensive.
