First Watch - Breakfast food at lunch! And a GIVEAWAY!

I love breakfast and I have been craving it lately! The folks at First Watch must have known because they sent me a couple of gift cards to try it out and to share with you! 

Since I work downtown - we headed to the location at 7th & Walnut (right near the Aronoff) - it wasn't busy at all for lunch - and there was plenty of parking right out front! 

The menu is pretty substantial and it's hard to choose - plus they do have healthy options - if you're in that kind of mood. I wasn't (shocker) and decided that I needed breakfast! 

I went for the Avocado, Bacon and Tomato Skillet Hash (potatoes, the above-noted ingredients, cheese and two eggs on top!). It came with an English muffin and fruit cup on the side. I really liked this! I used to work at Country Kitchen (back home) and we had a lot of these type of "skillet" meals - but this seemed fresher and not near as greasy! The fruit was really ripe and a nice "dessert" for a breakfast meal. The eggs were also cooked perfectly. I thought I might be hungry mid-afternoon but nope - I'm still full!

My friend went for the ChickiChanga - I didn't try a bite but he was also really happy with his choice! 

The service was great too - they were quick and friendly and came back with a refill when my soda got low. It's a great location - I wonder if folks don't think about it for lunch but I will definitely be back! 

Why Should You Go? As I mentioned - the food and service were both good - plus it's a sit-down restaurant that wasn't too busy in downtown - which can be a rarity! I really like being able to get breakfast for lunch...and healthy options are always nice too (wheat germ pancakes - mmmm!).

Also for the holidays - if you buy $100 in gift cards - you get $20 in bonus bucks free (hate holiday shopping - just buy them online)! And they've extended their fall menu for the rest of the year - so you can try some pumpkin pancakes or butternut squash soup for another couple of weeks!

And now for the giveaway - you can win breakfast/brunch/lunch for 2 for you and a friend!
