Our family stopped in for breakfast at First Watch in Pittsburgh after a redeye flight from California. We were one of the first ones in when they opened early morning.
The food was fresh, fresh coffee, they had a good selection of menu items. Kids had the pancakes and we had the breakfast eggs.
Overall its a nice clean cafe for a good breakfast and good service.
I would recommend it.

Figure on spending about $15 for breakfast which makes it more expensive than fast foods but the selection is better as is the quality of the food.

This is a very popular place at the weekend, so expect to wait a half hour or so for a table, they will text you when it's ready. We did and took advantage of the time to have a wee wander through the bookstore a short walk away. I chose the smoked salmon benedict, one of the summer specials, with potatoes. It was excellent, with an intense, delicious hollandaise sauce that complemented the salmon beautifully. I really loved it. We also shared a brioche with berries and mango - so fresh and tasty. I thoroughly enjoyed this brunch and look forward to returning to this establishment soon.

I go to First Watch occasionally for lunch. I really want to like it and the menu has some great choices. However, the food just doesn't live up to the descriptions. I find most things to be on the bland side. The food certainly isn't awful, just not as flavorful as one would expect from the menu descriptions. On a positive note, the service is generally quite good and everything is generally very fresh. I will likely go back at some point and hopefully find something a little more flavorful.
