Great food, very gluten free friendly. Do not recommend getting to go. Their phone doesn’t work, so you have to do it online and it’s a process. Not worth it honestly, unless you go inside then they’re very knowledgeable on what is GF.

Excellent experience. The manager, Paul, came to our table to discuss the menu and options for our GF/DF/SF kids. He helped us select items and turned the order in himself to make sure the kitchen took the necessary precautions. And good food!

The waitress brought us an allergen list and was knowledgeable about food allergies. The kitchen changed gloves prior to making my daughter’s meal and it was brought out separately. She ordered pretty basic with egg whites, bacon, orange juice, and a fruit bowl but it was still nice for my celiac daughter to be able to eat breakfast out without risk of being sick. No illness after eating their food. Would definitely eat there again.

First watch has been beyond accommodating and takes all dietary restrictions seriously. I have eaten here three times and have not gotten sick. Each and every time I have eaten here it has been a great experience. They do not have a gluten free menu but they are very happy to explain what can and cannot be done. Additionally, they not only ensured my food was gluten free but dairy free as well. The manager, Robert came to my table and personally took my order this last time but was always involved in my food preparation(every visit). Great Job to the team at First Watch ! Thank you very much for taking my condition seriously!

You have to watch out at this place. Depends on your server. Once I ordered GF toast and they brought me regular toast (thankfully I was suspicious and asked my waitress before trying it), next time I said NO TOAST and that I have a severe allergy and they still brought my plate with toast on it, third time they brought mine separately announcing it was for the gluten free customer. Thankfully I’ve never gotten sick, and the food is really good, but you have to be on alert at this location. Other First Watches I haven’t had the same experience

It's Mother's Day. I ordered the Traditional Breakfast. Explained I needed GF bread (I understand about risk of cross-contamination, took multiple GliadinX, just in case)

Breakfast came with REGULAR wheat toast. I asked "is this GF?" Waitress assured me it was GF, I said, "it looks like regular bread, what brand is it?" "It's a generic brand, and I *promise* it's gluten-free."

It's Mother's Day, I understand. I gave the toast to my friend, and took more GliadinX. Writing this 15 min after brunch from local Circle K bathroom.
