Though the Bryan–College Station area is growing rapidly, diners still expect to be seated right away at most restaurants. But First Watch isn’t most restaurants. During certain times of day, you can easily wait an hour. The fresh, locally sourced ingredients, showcased in everything from simple avocado toast to vegetable-packed quinoa bowls, have garnered a loyal following for this brunch hot spot. During a recent visit, we indulged in mouthwatering ricotta pancakes topped with lemon curd and berries, as well as a perfectly prepared eggs Benedict on toasted ciabatta. We left full and happy.
