“Consistently excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

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.

“Poor service and needs a good clenaing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

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 bad day for technology, but the person in front of me said its like that every time they visit.

Not returning - over-priced, poor service and average food for a high price.

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.

“Good meeting place in the heart of Clayton”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

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 they have plenty of parking in addition to the metered spaces in the street.

“Nice breakfast place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

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).
