I was looking forward to visiting First Watch for the first time after all the billboards in town. My hotel was in Clayton and was thrilled about breakfast since it is my favorite meal of the day. The restaurant decor is average and so was the food. I do like the personal (one) carafe of coffee though. My server was... More

If you are going to First Watch, make the effort to go to the one on S. Kirkwood Road. All First Watch restaurants are not equal. S. Kirkwood is excellent. However, Webster Groves and also Des Peres were a huge disappointment after becoming accustomed to the quality and service of Kirkwood.

Very popular breakfast restaurant serving all the standard breakfast fare plus some interesting variations on eggs and hash. Excellent fresh coffee served in a Themos jug, so no chasing the waitress for a refill.

This place is practically ideal in terms of its location and convenience. I meet one of my best friends for breakfast or lunch fortnightly and have never been disappointed. Their breakfasts are among the best in St. Louis and I recommend it highly.

Visited after reading reviews. Maybe we hit a bad day. The table we sat down at was sticky, the food was not hot, but warm and we never saw our server once we got our food. In addition, when checking out the credit card machine was processing so slowly it took forever. The cashier tried to say it was a... More

boonutsmom - Our sincere apologies for the experience you describe here. It is very upsetting to know we failed to exceed your expectations. The atmosphere, food and service you describe here does not meet our high standards and what you should expect from us, so your comments will be taken very serious.

The Clayton branch of First Watch does a great job of getting you in and out if you are on a time constraint (except on weekends when there's a wait). The menu has something for everyone - healthy options to the standard breakfast fare. I like the Tri-Athlete omelet. The location in Clayton is adjacent to a public lot so... More

Good place to eat with kids. Lots of variety. Enjoyed the "trifecta" (I think that's what it was called) -- eggs, pancakes, bacon. Service was fine. Location fine. Parking in rear (plus perhaps on street).
