I visited this restaurant with a group of approx 20 people who come here the same time every month for many years. Since they replaced the old facility, they no longer accommodate our group in a timely manner. They know when we are supposed to arrive but they rarely get us seated by 15-20 minutes past our scheduled arrival. The... More

We recently met friends here after not dining here since the renovation a number of years ago. We arrived at prime time Sunday brunch but had to wait maybe 20 minutes with complimentary coffee available and indoor and outdoor waiting areas. The people working were very friendly and made us feel like family. The food was delicious. I recommend trying... More

This is a very nice and updated First Watch. I went here for the first time last weekend, and really enjoyed the meal, as did everyone else at the table. Here is a big tip: Download the app NoWait. We checked in to get into line while we were still at home, and by the time we got there we... More

I came with a friend for lunch. She stressed that the butternut squash creations were very good. I had breakfast instead. 2 eggs scrambled, a really good blueberry pancake and 1 link of sausage. Add a small grapefruit juice and you have a $12.50 meal without tax or tip.

We met another couple for breakfast. Two ordered the Tri-fecta, two ordered omelets. I had the works omelet with bacon, sausage, ham, tomatoes, onions. Delicious! The side of greens were fresh and the hearty toast with their preserves was scrumptious. There was hardly a bite left on any plate. Our waitress was very efficient. She kept the coffee pot full...

Looking for breakfast without fast food. Located in North Kansas City, Mo. Nice and clean with a good crowd. Had to wait a few minutes for a table. Quick service and nice atmosphere. Food was very good and hot.
