This was my first visit to The Grove, and I would probably go back but order something different. I ordered the spinach, fontina and tomato scramble, and a chai latte. The cashier gave me my number and told me to step over towards the coffee bar to pick up my drink. Thankfully I'm a server, because the food came out... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge and it was a very good recommendation. I really liked this place. I had the avocado egg smash on toast and it was very good. I wish they had a place like this in LA. This is a family run business by San Francisans. We went back later for desert and the lavender... More

Was walking up 3rd in search of dinner for myself and my tired ~5 year old and was pointed here by the desk staff at the nearby W. What a gem! Great menu ranging from breakfast to desserts with multiple kid friendly options. Ordered at the counter and speedy, polite staff brought our food out moments later. Coffee house vibe... More

This restaurant was close to our hotel so we went many times. The food was great, the atmosphere was great and the service was top notch. I have recommended to so many friends who have been there since!

Saw the place from the Jump on jump off bus. Nice and clean place, quite crowded, and that was understandable. We were a party of six, and we had different courses from the menu. And everything was excellent. Very serviceminded waiters. Quick serving, in spite of many guests. Good prices as well! What can I say?? Just go there!

Had breakfast here and was very satisfied with their food. Excellent food and friendly staff. It's perfect place to go for a quick bite but with the extra trimmings.

I had lunch here twice. For some 15 dollar, I had a good time twice. They serve a perfect lunch, so they proved their high ranking.

This was perfect for a pre-concert dinner, very fast and efficient with very friendly staff and counter service instead of servers. I got the recommended Chicken Pot Pie, which tasted wonderful, but it seemed to all white meat and it was really not a full meal. Had to top it off with a great pieced of pecan pie. I recommend...

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
