Stopped by FW Sunday after church and had their Croque Madame and their excellent grilled cheese and tomato basil soup. So many good things on this menu and they really strive to offer super healthy options. It was super busy but the wait was only around 15 minutes. Location is close to a lot of fun stuff. Not to get... More

We come here every time we are in KC. Great food, particularly any of the hashes all the good is great. Have never had anything bad. If you like hot chocolate, try theirs.

The service was great! Plus the coffee and food were very good. The decor was rustic farmhouse with a modern twist. Loved it! We got in and out pretty fast which was great because we were on a time constraint. I would highly recommend.

Chose this restaurant over typical hotel breakfast while traveling across country. So glad we did! Pancakes are huge! Granola and yogurt with fresh fruit was perfect. We got there on Sunday morning by 8am and easily got seated. By 9am the joint was hopping. Would surely stop again if in the area.

The restaurant was very clean and appeared to have plenty of staff for a brunch visit on a Monday morning. After being shown quickly to our seats we then waited over 10 minutes for a waitress. This was after we loudly asked a waitress to help us,we placed out food order at the same time. The food was brought quickly.... More

I stay on the plaza fairly frequently but due to the size of our group today, we had to take breakfast elsewhere. We found First Watch and loved it! Great service and wonderful food. The dishes are huge although they are hearty enough for an average person. I ordered the multigrain pancakes and ended up sharing those with one of... More

I've been a regular patron of First Watch for over 10 yrs. Today's lunch was the worst dining experience I've had in a very long time. Waitress was rude and service was slow. Food was poor. Waffle was cold (glob of soft butter on top didn't melt), eggs were passable but the turkey sausage links were overcooked/dry and cold. I... More

2nd time we have eaten here and it will not be the last. When visiting K.C. this is where we eat brunch before heading home to Branson. By the way, wish we had a First Watch in Branson. Food is sooooo good and always service with a BIG smile. See you all next time.

Came highly rated. Ordered the blueberry pancake. Wide had strawberry French toast. Mine was ok but enjoyed the compote topping. Sausage too bland for my liking. I love a more hot Jimmy Dean/Webbers variety. Her meal was very good. Place is loud but friendly.
