  • Not your normal breakfast joint

    This place is the type of breakfast I've always looked for and now, have found it. I order the chickichanga every time I go to this place and I've never been disappointed. Its Whipped eggs with spicy chicken, homemade chorizo, green chiles, onion, avocado rolled in a crispy flour tortilla and topped with Vera Cruz sauce and sour cream. The service is always very friendly and very fast. Dining time never goes over 30min during the week or an hour on sunday(their busiest day). First watch is a breakfast place with a southwest/mexican twist to breakfast--there are many dishes with salsa, avacado, sour cream, etc.

  • Chainstore food.

    Relatively average breakfast (the home fries are terrible -- I think microwaved -- either mushy or extremely burning hot), but menu variety may appeal to families. Nice and comfortable store interior and facilities. National chainstore concept -- stores maintain same standards and offerings wherever I've experienced (thus same ratings).

  • Watching your waistline?

    I checked the nutrional information on their website and was shocked to learn that most sandwich plates are upwards of 800+ calories and average about 72 grams of fat. Even their salads have upwards of 60 grams of fat. Keep to the ""healthy"" column of the menu if you want to eat low-fat/low-cal.

    Several visits to this bright and cheerful breakfast spot have proved that the enthusiastic service and great food is a consistent product. The omelets, pancakes, muffins and wraps are all well worth a try. The coffee is several giant steps above average and is available in a carafe if you arrive during a rush and are forced to wait a bit. Where does this restaurant find such charming and energetic staff?

    Without a doubt, First Watch is the best place to get breakfast in Columbus. You have to watch out because the crowds get huge on the weekends, but the food and service is well worth the wait.

    I really enjoy Firstwatch, every time I have ate there my food has been very good. The only thing I do not like is the wait. It can be long at times, but it is well worth it.

    Great management culture, focused on the ""core"" service - early eating - and home with the family in the evening. Great service and selection for ""eggs""

  • Want something different?
    by  on 01/05/2003

    This restaurant is what my newly retired father needs. Too bad he lives out of town, nowhere near a First Watch franchise. New & different takes on the old & not so old breakfast favorites! Or try any of the magnificant salads, which I DO eat for breakfast. Unfortunatly there is almost always a constant wait for a table, but I do think it is worth it.

  • Boo hoo
    by  on 01/02/2003

    I've heard about this place a bunch so I decided to try it out. The first time I was very disappointed with the food -- nothing special. The second time I went the food was overcooked and cold and the service was less than stellar. I wouldn't go back for a third time.
