Default First Watch Restaurant

This past weekend I went to First Watch for breakfast/lunch and was so impressed. The restaurant is located off BV going towards SS and is in the same block as Publix.

The food is above excellent. I am a fruit type person so I ordered the two fruit crepes, which is two crepes containing a banana in each with chopped strawberries. A small dish of their Granola Crunch (to die for) and a huge home made muffin - that went home with me!

It is not a fancy restaurant - it's a breakfast/lunch cafe, but was very clean with really nice young people waiting and serving. The prices are excellent too. We both ate for under $20.

Our server told us they are looking for a location in Sumter Landing.

I agree, great breakfast if you desire a little more than bacon,eggs & homefries! Reminded us of "Coras" in Montreal with all the fruit available.

I would love to have a nice breakfast place in LSL. That would be a good addition to the mix

I'm confused, what's wrong with TooJay's in Lake Sumter? Not good enough?

I agree, First Watch is great, been there many times with some friends from Lake Weir. But I also find TJ's to have excellent food, especially breakfasts and not sure I understand the need for another?? We also have Panera, they don't serve a traditional breakfast, but they are good also.

For us, First watch is our first choice. They seem to whip up some different items for breakfast like their mushrooms with melted cheese on top that comes with some of the breakfasts. Yum, yum. I sure hope they find a place closer with enough space to accommodate everyone.

Sorry, but as a breakfast fanatic I tried First Watch and crossed them off my list. Slow service and cold food was served to us. Maybe they would be better given a second chance but they are out of my area and I don't want to waste a good breakfast that I could have elsewere such as Johnny Rockets, the best in TV in my opinion.

We went to First Watch in St Louis and each year indicated on Village survey that they would be a good addition to TV. They have been here awhile and we enjoy many things on their menu. The only thing we don't care for is their coffee. Guess it is a darker roast and we need to add multiple creamers. Wish they offered a choice of coffees like Panera does.

Personally we prefer local family owned breakfast places....Sunrise, Kountry Kitchen type.
they have small familiar local clientele. We do enjoy chains now and then but smaller for us is always our choice.
