Decent Food, Nothing to brag about 3/22/2009

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 Pros: Customer service Cons: no con's just average place more

Trifecta! 2/19/2007

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! Pros: Great Food and Service, Locations, Fresh Ingredients Cons: Not the worst but not great coffee more

Just right 8/2/2006

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. Pros: Good food- good service-good value Cons: Often a wait more

Great breakfast 7/11/2006

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. Pros: Great breakfast Cons: Seating is limited, get there early. more

Get the pancakes 8/2/2004

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. more

Hearty & Tasty 8/27/2002

First Watch was introduced to me when I moved here from NJ. My co-workers would want to gather before work at the ""breakfast place."" That says it all. No place else was considered worth delaying our arrival at work. I still love it. On Saturdays after taking my kids to choir practice, we'll trundle off to First Watch for everybody's favorite break. more

Very good restaurant 8/14/2002
