WINNER: First Watch 

First Watch is one of the fastest-growing restaurant chains in the U.S., and there’s good reason for that. This daytime restaurant specializes in breakfast, lunch and that meal in between. 

The menu offers a lot of standbys, but also mixes it up with seasonal dishes.

Two of the most popular dishes include The Traditional (two fresh cage-free eggs any style with your choice of bacon, smoked ham, savory chicken sausage patties, turkey or pork sausage links. Served with whole grain artisan toast, all-natural house preserves and fresh, seasoned potatoes) and the Tri-fecta (Two fresh cage-free eggs any style with either a light and airy Belgian waffle or a multigrain pancake. Plus your choice of bacon, savory chicken sausage patty, turkey or pork sausage link).

The menu has something for everyone. You can opt for healthy choices like avocado toast or a superfoods bowl. You can splurge on fruit-topped waffles, pancakes or French toast or tasty omelets or frittatas.
