Great lunch last week with a friend. Been here before and had to return. 1/2 Turkey/avocado sandwich and chicken salad was really good. Good, friendly service. Open for breakfast and lunch, closes at 2 PM.

Sorry the sandwich is half eaten I was so hungry before I sat down after a fasting that I couldn't resist. The sandwich is the Croque Madame and it was absolutely one of my favorite sandwiches of all time! I'm a huge fan of sandwiches by the way and am somewhat of a connoisseur. (: First Watch never disappoints.

First Watch offers a consistent fresh breakfast served in a very friendly way . I love the steel cut oatmeal loaded with fresh bananas , nuts, low fat milk and brown sugar on the side. This is also served with a fresh large muffin of the day. They serve very healthy meal selections and freshly squeezed juices. Try the carrot... More

We had a carryout breakfast this morning. I have to say I just loved the juice. I had the juice with ginger, orange and lemon. I really enjoyed the taste. I like that they use fresh ingredients. I had the zucchini omelet with goat cheese, mushroom, onion, etc. it was good. My husband had the pancakes and really enjoyed them.... More

After 4 visits to this breakfast/brunch/lunch eatery, it is easy to see why it ranks so favorably on TripAdvisor. The menu is extensive, and includes many fresh/healthy options including daily specials.The food is delicious, and service is good (unrushed and non-intrusive). Value is excellent, as portion sizes are enormous-most entrees can be shared by 2 people. The ambiance is "cafe-friendly",... More

First Watch is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to lunch. The menu has a great variety of healthy and delicious choices. Fresh pressed juices are also available, the Root Down (beet,carrot, apple, ginger) was delicious. My lunch in this photo was Butternut Ginger Bisque, Honey Pecan salad, and Root Down juice.
