This is a beautiful, light-filled restaurant serving breakfast, brunch and lunch. I had THE MOST DELICIOUS avocado toast and eggs. I wanted to turn right around and come back for brunch and lunch just to try more items on the menu!

Had a fast breakfast at First Watch, the food is very good and the menu had some pretty nice surprises like shrimp &grits and turmeric lemonade. The service was fast and pleasant.

We really enjoyed all the food at First watch. The sour dough toast was excellent, my wife got a green drink she is still craving, and our omlette's were delicious. I highly recommend this place. The lunch looked good too.
