First Watch Restaurant Review

: When anyone suggests breakfast, the first place usually mentioned is First Watch, a family-style restaurant with no-nonsense service, strong coffee and some of the best pancakes in town. Everyone feels right at home, from business types meeting over coffee to families and seniors. We like the cranberry nut pancakes---they’re the size of the plate itself, so we just order one. Kids go for the Belgian waffle served with a side of blueberry compote and whipped cream. For a big appetite, the omelets are the best bet, like the veg’d out with onions, mushrooms, celery, zucchini and broccoli. Or just order a simple plate of eggs over-easy with bacon and toast.
