Both meals were excellent - just the "right" amount and the carry out was expertly packaged to go. My... read more

I had lunch with friends at First Watch. As always the service was good. I enjoyed a veggie sandwich with a side salad of mixed greens. It was delicious

My wife and I ate here on a Saturday morning and it was excellent. The place was busy but they have a community table they call it that has 8 seats at it that was empty. We sat here and had great service and food. It was very fresh and we would return.

I enjoy this location. First Watch is my favorite day time cafe. The customer service is friendly and accommodating. The food is usually good and the space itself is very open with plenty of seating. More attention needs to be paid to the restrooms which seem to get overlooked during busy times.

We often go to First Watch in Des Peres and always enjoy our visit. For lunch I really enjoy the pecan dijon chicken salad. The flavors are so great together. Our server was great. He brought syrup to use with a french toast monte cristo which really enhanced the flavor.

The joint was jumping on a Saturday morning - lots of multi-generational families all smiles as they ate and relaxed over breakfast. We were seated quickly and the service was fast and friendly.
