Ok I really like 1st watch, but this location always has a wait, morning or afternoon, seems so busy. Their food tastes fresh and good. I wills it seems like they put avocados on everything, my sister loves it, I think some avocado moderation would be advisable. My kids love their bacon cheddar pancakes and I do too, the healthy...

First Watch set the standard many years ago for fresh breakfast fare built upon healthy ingredients (with a few exceptions, of course)! We always go for one of the specials - can't go wrong!

Been here before and will go again. Always GREAT food and GREAT service. There is often a wait, but they move pretty quickly. You get GREAT free coffee and internet service while waiting and well worth the wait.

We visited this First Watch location on Jan. 2, 2017, a holiday for many people. Although the wait was nearly an hour, we decided to stay in anticipation of what we recalled would be a tasty meal from earlier visits. Overall, the experience was average, at best. Once seated, our server (not wearing a name tag) took our beverage order... More

The wait can be long especially on a Sunday, but it is worth it. Food is excellent and features items not found in other breakfast places. It's a little on the pricey side, but we go there for special occasions.

Let's just say we left hungry! I had the salmon breakfast frittata - it had a good flavor, but it was small and very odd to have a salad with it at breakfast. My husband had the traditional breakfast. We both left feeling like the food was lacking. The service wasn't great - kind of stuck up. Very over priced... More

Good service, average food, always crowded. I must be missing something here as a $10 breakfast should offer something that tastes good. Service is always good, but the menu and preparation are sub standard.

The city should be listed as Creve Coeur but I can't make that update via mobile. Just a wonderful breakfast place. They have several upscale dishes that are good price or if you just want pumpkin pancakes and sausage their offering will make you happy. Great place for family breakfast, we went twice in two days.
