First Watch Review & Giveaway

Last weekend we were in Indianapolis for a family member's wedding. My girls were the flower girls for the wedding. We arrived in town on Friday evening, in time for the rehearsal. I had reserved a hotel room with two beds, but somehow we ended up with a King Suite. Can't saw that I was too upset, the whirlpool tub was a big hit. We had to skip out on the rehearsal dinner, the girls were hot and agitated, so we went back to the hotel and the girls played in the tub!

The next morning we went to brunch at a new restaurant in town, called First Watch located off East 86th Street in Keystone. It was located in a cute little strip mall area. The parking lot was busy but I found it super cool that they had chargers for electric cars. I'm going to sound REAL country, but that was the FIRST time I had ever seen electric car charger "parking spots" in a parking lot!
First Impression: Very cute, modern, and busy. We arrived around 12:30 PM, our party included four adults, two toddlers, and an infant in a carrier. The entrance is a little small there were several parties trying to check out while we entered and waited to be seated and the entrance/exit was a little crowded.

Our Experience: The staff was very nice and they immediately worked to find a table that would accommodate our group. We were seated at an extra long and very roomy booth. On one side of the booth we were able to sit two adults and both of my toddlers, in booster seats.

French Toast
We were given menus as well as coloring pages/menu and crayons for the girls. There was SO much to decide from, I had a hard time choosing! All of the food sounded very healthy and super yummy! I finally decided to go with the Beefeater, which included Roast beef, tomato, Cheddar and Monterrey Jack on grilled Parmesan-crusted sourdough. I also ordered Grilled Cheese for Little Sister and French Toast for Big Sister. While we waited for our food, I decided to test out their WiFi with my phone, it was nice and fast. The wait was not very long at all considering how busy they were when we arrived. Our food was brought out and was very organized and appealing to the eye on the plates. Our Server was very courteous and paid close attention to our needs. My dish was really tasty and the portions for all of our dishes were more than enough. I probably should have only ordered one kids meal for the girls to share, instead of two. I will admit, I did sample both of the girls' dishes and the French Toast was amazing! I finished everything on my plate and Little Sister ate as much of her Grilled Cheese as she could fit in her little tummy.

Grilled Cheese
Overall Impression: First Watch in Indianapolis, provides customers with dishes that are delicious and generously proportioned. You can find a little something for everyone on their menu! The prices are very reasonable and not too expensive. Their location does not give much room for growth and their entrance way does create a traffic jam during busy hours. They are very family friendly and very accommodating.  All things considered, I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my family and friends and I would definitely go back again. I'm not wishing there was a First Watch closer to me in Southwestern Indiana!
