If you’re looking for a go-to brunch spot, newly opened First Watch should definitely be in the running. A branch of the popular chain made its debut in October just three miles from Westbury Apartments, so it’s a convenient place to meet friends on a Saturday morning. Plus, the creative breakfast grub just happens to be delicious.

When you’re craving something sweet, dig into a short stack of multigrain lemon-ricotta pancakes loaded with berries and creamy lemon curd or the thick-cut brioche French toast decorated with whipped butter and powdered cinnamon sugar. If you’re in the mood for something savory, try the skillet hash served farmhouse-style. A bed of seasoned potatoes bears crispy pieces of bacon, avocado, roasted onions and tomatoes, cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, and a pair of eggs prepared your way. First Watch also offers healthier options, along with lunch sandwiches and salads.
