Better than I expected!

OK, it is a chain, and it is breakfast for lunch so I was not expecting much. Boy was I ever surprised.

We live in Chesterfield and this is one of our favorite places to eat. I love LOVE the carrot cake pancakes, I believe they are a special but whenever I see them on a menu I get them!

Meet my girlfriend here lunch at her suggestion. First time here and won't be my last. Great friendly staff. Ordered the Santa Fe salad. Unbelievable, YUMMY. A little spicy, which the server told me in advance. Very fresh. My girlfriend ordered the chocolate chip pancakes. Looked and smelled delious. Our server was wonderful and really took care of us.

This is a good place to get a decent breakfast quickly and at a reasonable price. Not all of the butter and grease of Denny's. They don't carry tomato juice though. Just V8. Not a fan of V8.

I have eaten here many times, since I live close. The food has always been fresh and very appetizing and tasty. One thing to keep in mind is that the restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch.

Well prepared and tasty food. Substantial portions. Reasonably priced. GREAT potatoes. What is not to like? Well, it is sometimes crowded and they still can't master serving hot tea. Otherwise, love it

I love the new look of the restaurant-- very contemporary and more open. I prefer to dine during "off hours," as things can get very busy during peak breakfast hours. But the food/service has consistently good regardless of when I've visited.

We went there on a Sunday morning at 11:30am which is a very busy time. We were seated rather quickly because we were a group of 6 and they only have a certain number of tables for 6. Service was excellent and so was the food. They just do a great job for breakfast and lunch at First Watch
