Back in 1983, there was no breakfast restaurant–focused category, really. Then the original First Watch opened from 7 am to 2:30 pm with the idea that people want a Breakfast, Brunch and Lunch restaurant that doesn’t moonlight with steaks or anything else later in the day. Here at First Watch, we begin each morning at the crack of dawn, slicing fresh fruits and vegetables, baking muffins and whipping up our French toast batter from scratch. Everything is made to order, and freshness is never compromised. We don’t use heat lamps or deep fryers — we use only the finest ingredients possible for the freshest taste around.

Yeah, it’s true. We love our employees more than bacon. And that says a lot.

Together, we enjoy a fun, fast-paced environment in each of our restaurants. If you like what you see at our restaurants, then apply today. We are currently searching for energetic people who can deliver top-notch service, build meaningful relationships and become part of our team. First Watch Restaurants are popping up across the U.S. and we’re always on the lookout for future leaders.
