The popular breakfast, brunch and lunch chain First Watch (3101 E. Sunshine, Springfield, 417-889-0601) made its way to Springfield in October 2017. Known for fresh menu items like avocado toast, superfood bowls, wraps and juices, Springfieldians have found a new boozeless brunch-time fave. 

In the few short months the restaurant has been open, the National Avenue location is one of First Watch’s top-performers. “The opening of the Springfield location broke the record,” says James Tillman, owner of Springfield’s First Watch. “Since our opening in October, we have remained in the top 10 of all 310 locations.” 

Because of its success, Tillman has plans to open a second location at Plaza and East Sunshine on April 8, 2019. 

The new location’s menu will be the same, but the decor leans more toward modern than the usual urban farm look.
