Review: First Watch

On Sunday, Terry and I couldn’t wait to get out of my apartment. As much as we like having nothing to do but cook, watch movies, and play with the cats, it was getting old after two days. We decided to brave the snow and head to First Watch.

Yeah, another chain. But it was the only one open, and I was jonesing for a review!

First Watch is based in Florida, and has locations in Florida, Ohio, and a couple of other midwestern states. It’s small, but pretty decent. I like that I can order things that are relatively healthy, and aren’t too expensive.


That’s a “Not Guilty, Your Honor” sandwich: Flatbread, hummus, feta, spinach, red peppers, tomato and mushrooms. I really wanted something fresh and springlike to counter the heavy, wintry foods I’ve been eating lately. It was pretty good, but something I could easily make at home.


This was the turkey dill CrepeEgg. Turkey, eggs, veggiese, hollandaise and dill. It tasted a lot better than it looks on that plate (beige food is the enemy of the food photographer).

I like First Watch, but my favorite breakfast place locally (as in, “place that is only open from 7 AM to 2 PM”) is Daybreak. I’ll have to review them soon.

What’s your favorite place for breakfast?
