    One of the best meals I had in SF. We ordered french toasts and the toast with avocado and two pouchet. Both comes with two portions, perfect for sharing. Best idea ever.

    Stopped by after dinner for some chamomile tea. Cozy spot, several tea, coffee and dessert options. Would be a great place to relax with a book. Love the decor.

    Closest thing I've found to a real pub atmosphere in SF. That is, you can go there and get a beer and take your time about it. With friends or on your own reading. Food is good but a touch pricey?

    One of my favorite lunch spots. Brunch served all day every day. Enough Said! But my menu favorites are actually the Berkeley bowl and turkey BLT with the spicy harissa mayo on the side! YUM.

    I have dreams about the lavender and watermelon lemonades here. The watermelon is only available during the summer months. Get it with the breakfast burrito. Everything else on the menu is subpar.

    A cozy little spot to bring your book or laptop & snuggle up with some coffee & a sandwich. Rustic in feel, the fireplace & pillows make this a very easy place to get lost for an afternoon. - Jill

    Grilled cheese and tomato soup is exactly what you would hope from that combo. Apple chicken salad is great too. All the staff are nice and helpful - very attentive.

    A cozy, neighborhood cafe atmosphere that is reminiscent of the shuttered Chestnut St. location. Uniquely different from her sister cafes in SoMa & Hayes Valley.

    This and La Boulange (across the street) are the only spots along this stretch of Fillmore where you can get a weekday cafe lunch sans the Ladies Who Lunch crowd.

    Huge glasses of fresh squeezed OJ from the zumex machine are a solid hangover cure. Makes a great combo with the Avocado and poached egg toast.

    You've gotta be kidding me. This place does not deserve it's location!! Shittiest sitting down experience. Über small portions (Nutella crepe) for $7... Stale coffee. The worst brunch so far!

    This location is wayyy better than the Chestnut Location. Get the tuna salad (salas with tuna on it). The giant chocolate chip cookies are also awesome.

    Beware dudes from nearby tech start-ups who will push back the chairs into the walkways to set up their standing desks. WTF? Otherwise, awesome free WiFi and sandwiches. Read more

    $15 for breakfast burrito and a coffee. No wifi and no free refills on coffee. So in other words, "give us your money and get the f out". Used to love this place.

    Breakfast burrito is still amazing but they don't have wifi anymore. Apparently they want people to talk to each other more. To avoid that, just tether!

    No other place in the city is as bad as managing their food inventory as the Grove. Want steak? Oops they're out of it. Want spinach dip? Oops they're out of it. Open 2+ years, Grove you suck.
