I stopped in for a quick lunch with family. One of their specials was Croque Madam. I had to try it to see how close they were to the French classic sandwich. Their version was really good with ham, cheese, toast and bechemel sauce with 2 eggs on top. It was a meal. I hope they add it to their... More

I did not know this place was a franchise! I love the menu. I recently had the chia pudding bowl. I had been concerned it wouldn't be enough. Not true, it was so good.

Vegetarian choices are limited but are good nonetheless. Pancakes are good and salad options are great as well.

We used the No Wait app. to place ourselves in "line" on a Sunday morning at 11 a.m. and didn't wait but about 25 minutes being behind 12 others. This First Watch has a large dining area, but it's broken up into several smaller sections. I had the Tri-Fecta which is my usual favorite. The food is always hot and... More

Great for breakfast, brunch or lunch open from 6:30am - 2:30pm (hence the name 1st watch) delivers great food with healthy options for all ages. The service is pleasant and they are pretty accommodating regarding special dietary requests. They often have seasonal items such as butternut squash, salmon and pumpkin. The waffles and pancakes are to die for.

Greeted and seated immediately, then welcomed by Christina with a pot of fresh, hot coffee. With her recommendation ordered the breakfast power bowl - an excellent choice. Service was excellent as was the food. Will recommend and try again - next time I am in St. Louis.
