Decent Food, Nothing to brag about – My boyfriend and I went to this place because of all the great reviews on citysearch. It is located about 20-25 minutes outside of Orlando in a city called Maitland. The location is odd, so make sure to mapquest it or you will get lost. The restaurant is cute and kind of intimate. The waitress was super fast. We were starving and it was like 1pm and they were still serving breakfast. I had the sourdough french toast and the Key West Crepeggs (minus the bacon), which are crepe's stuffed with an omelet. My boyfriend ordered the french toast with eggs and sausage. The food was on the table within 10 minutes. so we were happy about that. I have nothing good to say nor anything bad to say. We were hungry and the food was good. Nothing special. WE were hungry and when we left we were no longer hungry. So I guess mission accomplished. Try it for yourself. You may think different
Trifecta! – We like to take our time on the weekends, so we go for brunch. This is the BEST brunch in town! Always fresh ingredients and creative specials. My 3 favorites: Florida French Toast, Trifecta, and the Traditional. Yummy. You do wait to be seated so just prepare for that, it's worth the wait. And the service is always friendly, chipper and fast. The coffee isn't great but if you go to the Longwood location you can go to the Starbucks next door while you are waiting for your table. Enjoy!
Just right – Been here a number of times for breakfast and have enjoyed it. This can be a very busy place so be prepared to wait a few minutes for a table. I find though that once seated the service is quick and the food preparation is timely and accurate- something I really appreciate particularly at breakfast time. Good food, quick and pleasant service all at a resaonable price. If you're like me and just can't bring yourself to go to a Denny's or IHOP, then this is your answer.
Great breakfast – Everything on the menu is great even if you are looking for something on a healthy side. Get there early because lots of people love the place. Pancakes are awesome.
This homey, family-style restaurant chain dishes up some of the city's best--and most affordable--breakfasts around. – In Short
First Watch serves lunch (mainly salads and sandwiches), but breakfast is the star. Pancakes, made to order with toppings like blueberry, granola and bananas, are served in a doughy stack. Florida French toast boasts slabs of cinnamon-raisin or sourdough bread sprinkled with wheat germ and piled with fresh bananas, kiwis and berries. The bacon and cheese omelette is loaded with avocado, Monterey Jack and sour cream. Chunky home fries are available with most entrees.
Get the pancakes – Forget about your diet the day you go to First Watch. Sure, you can choose from any number of low fat breakfasts as my family did. Not me though, I went for the good stuff. The big mongo sized pancakes are awesome. Ask for extra butter as I did and have a ball with it. 3 will fill you up if you're a pretty hardy eater as I am. Get there early as the Longwood restaurant fills quickly. They offer some sort of psuedo-reservation system. Just get there early otherwise you'll be sitting in plastic chairs out front (w/the smokers)watching people that ate too much exit the restaurant.
Freaking Fantastic!!!! – My family and I have decided to try every entre, we have enjoyed about half the menu they are all Freaking Fantastic!
Simply Good Food - Cheep – I have visited this restrant (and others in its chain) and found it to be very good food, very good service at a very reasonable rate. Try to eat a full stack of the blueberry pancakes, Bet you can't.
Grat food and service – Breakfast for four was served quickly and all food was very good
First Time at First Watch – Wonderful breakfasts, great selection, reasonable prices, conveninet location (in Maitland)
