My sister was so smitten with First Watch in Pikesville that I felt it my duty to visit two days later. The place was everything she said and more. Our other sister and her husband joined me for brunch during the week. My pancake with lemon curd and marinated fruit was light and delicious. My breakfast order of homefries, eggs... More

Been here a bunch for breakfast and lunch and always enjoyed it. Quick service, good food, if somethings not to your liking, they take care of it right away. Very efficient. A little secret - love their hot chocolate - it's huge and if you order it before lunch, there's not much room left for lunch - but its so... More

My wife and I decided to dine at First Watch and found a 20 minute wait when we arrived. Folks, this place is worth waiting for. The food is always delicious and the coffee great. We love this restaurant! Ask for Mirror, a very attentive server.

My husband had scrambled eggs, waffle and sausage. I had an omelet. Both were good. We each got coffee, a whole carafe was given to each of us at the table. No wait for refills. I like that they have the calories on the menu.

My wife and I hadn't been to First Watch in over a year so we decided to have breakfast there this past Wednesday. It wasn't too busy at 10:30am and we got a nice big booth like I prefer. We ordered a Morning Meditation(a great juice blend), two coffees, an order of Avocado Toast, and an order of Pot Roast... More

I had an opportunity to return to First Watch after several years. I must admit the cheddar cheese eggs and Belgium Waffles were just as I remembered...delicious and prepared just right! Bring a friend and try the blueberry pancakes. Go ahead and try it. You'll be glad you do.

Brunch was an exceptional meal. I had the avocado toast with 2 soft eggs and a side of bacon was very pleasing. In stead of coffee, I order the melon cooler (honeydew melon, English cucumber, lemon and agave) was refreshing and crisp! There was not a long waiting list as the turn-around was quick with ample waitress/waiters and serving staff!... More

This is a casual eatery that caters primarily to the local area. But it does seem popular to those folks. I like the pancakes but the menu offers many lunch items. Very casual and no reservation is necessary.
