My boyfriend and I eat breakfast at this location on occasion and it is my favorite place to eat at! I love the many breakfast and lunch selections on the menu and try something new and delicious every time. It has a lot of variety from more traditional breakfast options (eggs, pancakes, bacon) to more creative and inventive options. Today... More

We stopped at this restaurant for breakfast. The service was very prompt and the food was very good. They use a lot of organic and local sourced food products so everything was very fresh and tasty. I will definitely return again. This was my second experience with First Watch and it did not disappoint.

When I sat down and saw "Kale Tonic" I nearly got up an left! I love a good imaginative, but not "froo-froo" breakfast. Luckily I looked further and they had lots of traditional, but also interesting dishes of pancakes or egg dishes. Ate there three breakfasts in a row and each meal was terrific.

After eating at 4-5 different First Watch restaurants, I'm always left with the same feeling...why did I just pay that much for that meal? Honestly, the eggs are only OK and food overall somewhat bland for my taste. What really gets me though is the lack of Goetta. HEY FIRST WATCH, you're in Cincinnati put some goetta on the menu...

Had to get our own utensils after asking twice, waitress did not return to table to ask about our food, had to go to register to get our bill - and it was not particularly busy.

Ate lunch here prior to meeting my financial advisor. Yep that's true. Didn't want to spend my last dime and not get a satisfactory meal. I had the lunch combo of a Cobb Salad and Beef Sandwich. This is a favorite of mine and I always have a difficult time deciding of which to take the first and last bite.... More

In town for an appointment. Left Lexington this morning in 16" of snow. Made the appointment and had time for breakfast. Much needed after a stressful drive. Found First Watch right around the corner, never been before. Place was packed, but we were seated quickly and coffee was brought immediately. Our order was taken promptly and our meal came even...

I was looking for a breakfast place for an early morning Saturday meeting and First Watch opens at 7:00 am. Great atmosphere and good prices.

What a great restaurant! Great breakfast food - the typical All-American traditional dishes, plus the modern 'healthy eats dishes. All are well prepared. Service is fasttttt, and very competent. Great spot for a family or business breakfast. What more can I say? This location has been on my go-to list for years.
