I got one of the hash dishes as well as a pecan pancake; everything was quite delicious! Portions were huge, service was great... Only thing that could have been better was refills on coffee, but would definitely recommend.

Favorite with the locals. Expect a wait especially at breakfast time. Great menu. Good food at fair prices.

Came here for lunch, and a place to use the Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi was broken; table, glasses, bathrooms, even the floors are very dirty. My shoes were sticking to the floor with every step I took. I called the manager over and showed him a particularly dirty glass and he said "yeah I saw that" and took it away, but he... More

This is my third time here this week, which is a little more than normal, but I'd eat here every morning if I could afford the time in my schedule! The service is always wonderful, food is fast and served to order and there's rarely a long wait! Highly recommend this location, as well as Des Peres and Clayton.

Imagine our surprise when we had to wait 15 minutes for a table for breakfast at 10:30 on a Friday (non-holiday) morning! After enjoying our great breakfast (from a diverse menu), we understood why!

Delicious breakfast. Boutique dining experience, not your grandpa's style of breakfast (although there were two "traditional" offerings available). Culturally diverse and appetizing.

I was so excited to find a First Watch within walking distance of my son's condo. The first time we ate there (omelet, French toast, pancakes) everything was great. This last visit in June, it was disappointing. My scrambled eggs had not been beaten thoroughly and were streaked yellow and white. The bacon was burnt in places and not cooked... More
