Great find!

Was recommended by hotel and we were more than pleased. Right around the corner from our hotel so we liked it so much that we went back twice! I had the egg and avocado toast one day then the breakfast burrito another. Great coffee's and service

Got there at 7:45 a.m., but they didn't open until 8:00. Didn't know that, but not so bad. Ordered a breakfast sandwich and a salmon platter. Breakfast sandwich was nice: lox, eggs, toasted bun. Not great, but still good. Big glass of juice. Lox platter had lox, capers, pickled onions, cream cheese and toast. Would have preferred a bagel, but... More

This restaurant is very convenient to the convention center and to the St Regis hotel - and cheaper than the hotel. I ate here several times (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and thought the food was very good. Service was fast even when busy. You put in your order at the counter, pay and then take a stand with a number... More

From outside it looks very busy and nice so we decided to have breakfast in the restaurant. Eggs and French toasts were terrible. There is no service from the waiters. There were over a dozen of waiters running around but were not asking for anything.

The Grove is just plain fun plus great food choices galore. Pick the time & avoid 12-1:00 PM as its a bit busy from Moscone visitors, but otherwise just fine. Great open spaces with multiple seating choices. My fav is the breakfast all day items, these hit the spot for a nice quickie bite! Enjoy. ...

Visited for a quick lunch between meetings. The avocado toast and eggs was unique and tasty. The bread was delicious. The place is busy but easy to find seating upstairs.

Our hotel recommended this place and we fell in love. The food is amazing and excellent value. Their staff were extremely friendly and we just kept coming back. Great for people watching too! All day breakfast, you can't go wrong.

By chance I stopped here instead of heading back to the hotel from Moscone Center, ended up having a cranberry pie and a latte. Sat out by the side walked and really enjoyed the moment watching the city walking past. The serving was generous and good. The service was average. There were quite a number of people sitting indoor, but... More

Wide range of menu selections for every level of hunger, salads, sandwiches, entrees, breakfast items (served all day) great beers. Very casual vibe. Coffee bar. A place to hang out more than to eat (although the food was good). Glad it was opened late. Not full service (order at counter and they bring food to you).

The food hit the spot. Great breakfast spot. Their omelettes are excellent and we'll portioned. The toast is amazing. This is a place where you order at the counter and sit yourself. There is outdoor seating and couches and tables inside. Very low key. Great coffee and lattes. I recommend for a solo traveler or a small group.

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
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.
