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.

Had breakfast here at about 10 am on a Saturday. It was busy with a short 95 minute) wait. Free coffee on a table in the waiting area. Service people professional but friendly.

Visiting our daughter in KC and we wanted brunch so she suggested this place. Wish I could have sampled it all. Prices are reasonable, service was great and with a smile. Very good coffee too. Easy to find and parking is a breeze. Will return on our next visit......for sure.

This is a great breakfast place. Different breakfast specials with each season. The coffee is always hot and fresh. They now have different fresh juices on the menu that are a refreshing change of pace from OJ. They also have healthy options that taste great. No ground pine bark dishes.
