The Brunch Review: First Watch

It’s really no secret that I love brunch (best meal of the day & usually the highlight of my weekend), but it’s always nice when friends reach out inviting me to new brunch places that I absolutely have to try. Big shout out to Bailey for introducing me to First Watch, a new brunch place right in Villanova, and the next place up for review. Go cats, go brunch.
