Makes Breakfast the Best Meal of the Day

The breakfast menu is so varied and all of it is appealing! So is the atmosphere. First Watch makes the most important meal of the day the best meal of the day!

If you enjoy breakfast amid the joy of happy, noisy, preschoolers running around, then this is the place for you. If you prefer a serene breakfast environment don't visit this First Watch.

We went here while visiting the St. Louis area and hit them with a party of 10 including 6 kids in the middle of Sunday morning rush and they delivered beyond expectations. They took the kids orders first and got them out very quickly with the adult orders just a few minutes behind. We have been to multiple First Watches... More

Great breakfast right here! Moderately priced, unique fresh food, great service. We ate here both days we stayed in Clayton. We had 3 adults and 4 kids in our party and were taken care of in a timely manner the 2days we came. Everyone left full and content.

I went here with my boyfriend for a quick bite to eat. The waiting list was ~25 minutes. In precisely 25 minutes they called us in to seat us. Once we ordered, the food arrived within 10minutes.

Wife and I were pretty much honored to have breakfast here on a Monday morning in January 2015. First Watch is located on the ground floor of a bank building. Lucky employees! We followed the sign for public parking but it led us to permit-only lots. No worries, there was street parking available. We were quickly greeted and led to... More

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

It is very upsetting to hear this is how your recent visit with us went. The service you describe here does not meet our high standards and we will address your concerns. 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
