If you’re in or near the Dunwoody area, brace yourself: there is an amazing new restaurant opening up that will blow you away!  Earlier last week, I had the pleasure of getting a “sneak peek” dining at First Watch in Dunwoody yesterday, and -well, yum!

I met up with Diana, my blogger pal over at Sandy Springs Macaroni Kid, and had my toddler son tag along as well.  We were kindly greeted upon entering, and promptly seated, with a high chair immediately produced for my son.  Our server, James, was patient and kind.  Patient was a must for me, not only because I had a toddler with me, but because I just couldn’t’ decide what I wanted — there were SO MANY tasty options from which to choose!

You see, at First Watch, the menu is chock full of fresh, healthy dishes prepared made to order.  It’s a breakfast, brunch, and lunch place, so there’s plenty of dishes that offer an egg white options (all cage-free) at no charge, as well as fresh seasonal produce from local growers whenever possible.  Since I am a sucker for breakfast foods, I sat staring at the long list of delicious entrees, including ten different omelets, wraps, crepes, skillet hashes (five choices!), and drool-worthy pancakes, french toast, and much much more!  Many of these dishes were served with a cup of fresh fruit, too.  Oh, and all patrons are welcome to complimentary Sunrise Select Premium Blend coffee.


This was Diana’s meal – most of which went home in a box!


Their lunch menu includes a variety of fresh spring mix salads, sandwiches, and soups.  To entice you even further, they offer a “2 For You” lunch option: pair any two 1/2 salads, 1/2 sandwich, or a cup of soup.

I was treated to delicious sweet tea.  As a Southern girl, that was essential.  My tea was so delicious, I think I got two refills, and then asked for a to-go cup!  They also offer your standard gammer of beverages, sodas, juice, milk, hot chocolate, San Pelligrino water, and herbal teas.  And don’t forget that complmentary coffee, too.

First Watch Kids Menu

Remember my son was with me?  So I got to test out the kids menu as well.  I’m seldom really impressed with kids’ menus: they tend to offer standard not-so-healthy options that my kids don’t even eat anyways.  (Seriously?  My kids don’t care for chicken nuggets or mac and cheese, and I’m ok with that.)  I digress.  The kids menu, which was presented on a placemat with crayons for my son to color upon (or -um- nibble on the crayons…) offered simpler versions of the dishes on the regular menu, including pancakes, waffles, ham sandwich, turkey sandwich, french toast, fresh fruit crepe, or a simple bacon and egg.  All served with a cup of fresh fruit, and a beverage of choice – all for $4.99.

This is the french toast he was served…  YUM!

I was amazed how accommodating the staff were.  My son took a strong liking to the fresh fruit, particularly the strawberries and blueberries. He gobbled up all of his, then mine, and Diana offered some of hers as well.  During one of the many check-ins the staff had with us, they noted he liked the blueberries and strawberries.  Next thing I knew, they brought him out a big bowl filled with strawberries and blueberries.  He was in berry heaven, and did a great job gobbling them up with his spoon!

First Watch
All in all, I was super-impressed with my entire experience at First Watch.  I can’t wait to take my husband and daughter with us again very soon.  And my parents.  And my in-laws.  And neighbors.  And -well- you get the drift – now go see for yourself!  🙂
