First Watch (Charleston, WV)
164 Summer St, Charleston, WV 25301
In it’s own words, First Watch is a US chain serving breakfast, brunch or lunch. Founded in 1983 in California, it currently has over 100 restaurants in 13 states. It prides itself on freshness of the food and social consciousness of the business. It has many different types of omelets, pancakes, salads, etc.
I am getting the special of the day, the BLT Benedict ($9.79): 2 poached eggs, bacon, avacado, lemon dressed arugola, remoulade, on a toasted ciabatta. It is very messy and very tasty. The bacon is thin and crispy, the eggs runny, the sauce not overpowering, and it all has a bit zesty kick of lemon. The potatoes were diced and baked with onion. A bit undercooked, but still good.
An excellent breakfast/lunch chain that is many steps above the usual (IHOP, J. Christopher) and closer to a fresh family restaurant.
