Visiting our daughter in KC and we wanted brunch so she suggested this place. Wish I could have sampled it all. Prices are reasonable, service was great and with a smile. Very good coffee too. Easy to find and parking is a breeze. Will return on our next visit......for sure.

This is a great breakfast place. Different breakfast specials with each season. The coffee is always hot and fresh. They now have different fresh juices on the menu that are a refreshing change of pace from OJ. They also have healthy options that taste great. No ground pine bark dishes.

I was looking for a restaurant with brunch options and First Watch fit the bill. Great service, seated in less than 15 minutes, food was out quickly and it was delicious. Good portion sizes and interesting options . . . from traditional eggs and fried potatoes to a number of organic, healthy-choice options.

Greeted and made to feel comfortable and relaxed from the start. Excellent waitress. We ordered the Pumpkin Pancakes and an Egg white Omelet. Both dishes so flavorfull. Many healthy and creative...

This restaurant is located in the Old Westport area, in an older strip mall. That being said, the meals were creative and inventive. The taste was spot on, and you get a ton of food for the price. Everyone of the staff was very friendly and welcoming. We ordered the special Breakfast tacos and the Biscuits n Gravy. Again, WOW... More

First Watch is roomy and clean. The service was good. The place caters to healthy eaters. I'm more of a biscuits and sausage gravy kind of guy. I think if you're looking for something different or trying to add an extra few minutes to your lifespan you might enjoy this place.

Thank you for your comments, Kevin. We appreciate your visit, and we'd like to recommend you try any of our hash dishes that are slightly more indulgent. Our guests really seem to love the Parma Hash, which is two eggs any style atop a hash of fresh, seasoned potatoes, Italian sausage, house-roasted Crimini mushrooms, onions and tomatoes with melted Parmesan,...
