I have always loved First Watch - it's healthy, fresh, affordable, and the food typically arrives quickly. The First Watch in Kirkwood is easily the best one

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.
