Reviews for First Awakenings

We came here on a recent trip to Monterey and we were pleasantly surprised at everything about this place. It is within walking distance of the aquarium and we were seated right away. Due to the pandemic we were seated outside and everything was wiped down before we were seated. The menu was on our phone which we could scan the QR code. We thought this was cool and more sanitary. Now to the food. I ordered an egg white omelette and a side of fruit and it was very delicious full review
Told us the wait was gonna be 15-20 mins, ended up waiting 45 before we asked the host how much longer the wait would be and he said it was gonna be another 45 minutes... there was only 2 of us. We would've waited almost 2 hours just to be seated for what we where told was a 20 minute wait. How does that work? Probably won't be going here again if they can't give an accurate wait time . We ended up going to the Butter House. only waited 5 mins to be seated. full review
Just ordered some items here for take out. Reading reviews, this place gets busy and we are happy that we opted this route as there was a long wait upon our pickup. One thing I noticed about the food was that they had nice big portions, always good to start the morning.I usually opt for the biscuits and gravy and was not disappointed. The biscuits and gravy were hearty and filling. Also the country potatoes deserve shout out for the seasoning and for not being overcooked. full review
