This is a great breakfast or lunch spot. All the usual items you'd expect to find but with a more creative twist. I was impressed with the actually healthy options they had to offer. The food here is very good, with a generous portion at a reasonable price.

The menu description of the Floridian French toast sounds all yummy & when the plate arrived it looked awesome BUT the taste was unbelievably BLAND! :-( :-( :-( Just as you can't judge a book by its cover, you can't judge French toast by its menu description nor its colorful appearance (i.e. strawberries, kiwi & banana on top were good)....

Delicious, fresh and organic! Friendly staff and fast service! It was our first time and we'll be looking forward to going there again in our travels since we discovered they have many locations. The food was so good we went 2 days in a row!

This was my first visit to a First Watch, but it won't be my last. I was there with a larger party of friends around 12:30 on a Saturday and we were seated and immediately. Service was prompt and friendly. Our drinks were brought out within minutes of our arrival. Our orders were taken quickly with insightful recommendations from our... More

Perfect location in downtown Cincy. Cool vibe with all sorts of people eating here from families to couples. Good service and wonderful selection of really gourmet breakfast food. Loved the Goetta breakfast sausage too!

We had our morning breakfast here not realizing that First Watch was also in Cincinnati as we frequent the one in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We had the pumpkin pancakes served by Cynthia. She was a joy as to attitude and attention to her group of tables.
