I've eaten lunch at the Clayton location many times, but went here for brunch today and boy, it wasn't even close to being like the other times I've visited. They take your phone number and text you when your table is ready. I received the text that our table was ready and when we went to the counter the table... More

You should expect the same great food and service from all of our locations, so we're on it! Cari, First Watch Customer Service More

Really impressed with this restaurant. It is a bit confusing right when you enter because the cashier is right there and it is hard to figure out where you should stand to be seated. Our waiter was great. I wanted to try every one of their menu items they all looked so good. I had the fruit crepes (delicious) and... More

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.
