They don't have a dedicated menu, but can make a few things: Ham, potato's, eggs, omelette, bacon and sausage. We all ordered gluten free since I don't have to but do because my husband and son are both GF. Just easier that way.

Our breakfast came and I had half my Gluten-free omelette eaten, when our server brought out a new one to me and said the cook said she put bread on that omelette before it was served to you. I was glad that it was mine and not my son's breakfast, but then I wondered how careful are they in the back? I didn't need the other omelette and wished they would have been a bit more careful and had checked with me before they cooked another one. I did appreciate that they did that, but the omelette was half eaten before they told me it had bread on it. Hoping they are a bit more careful for people who have severe reactions from either celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity issues.

Waitress was very helpful, gave me extra portions of fruit and vegetables. Potatoes are cooked in soy. I got eggs, avocado, tomato, green salad and fruit.

Been here several times, and despite ordering GF with no bread, I have always received bread or other gluten items on my plate. I've always had a great experience at the Anderson location on beechmont however!

Decent brunch food. Whenever I mention gluten free they know what I'm talking about and seem to be careful. I feel a bit rushed though, they usually give us the check before we're halfway done with the food.

I found that First Watch was very accommodating. They had a GF toast option and were able to make my order without cheese. The quinoa bowl was very filling and delicious.
