I was in Charleston for business. I wanted a simple, healthy lunch. First Watch was well regarded. I had a wonderful salad and tomato soup lunch combo. It hit the spot. I would definitely recommend.

Ate there on a Saturday. The lunch was adequate. Typical cafe fare. It was crowded but others seemed to enjoy it. No alcohol.

The food was fantastic and not the cookie cutter variety. The omelet was good, the burritos, French toast was yummy. We ate there 2 days in a row.
