My teenagers adore first watch. We go every six weeks or so. The quinoa bowls are very savory. My kids love the orange juice. Eggs are cooked perfect. Beware of Sunday. It’s usually very busy!

My favorite is the trifecta: 2 eggs, bacon and a large pancake or waffle. The service is quick and friendly and the taste is excellent.

The millionaires bacon is worth its weight in gold. It was a special that I added to my eggs and the syrup changed my weekend. Service was awesome. I’ll be back again and again

Delicious food with very quick service every time. They are very busy on Saturday and Sunday mornings so it may take a few minutes to get a table but you will not be disappointed by the great food and service. I recommend the Belgian waffle.
