This is one of those rare places where all the elements just come together to create a lovely dining experience. First of all, it's counter service, which I love as you can leave as soon as you're done eating without waiting on the bill, or you can linger as long as you want. And while that might sound super casual,... More

Love the decor and vibe, very casual, think lounging/coffee shop. The people were really well informed about the food when they took our order and the hardest part was finding a place to sit. Gotta have the Avocado Toast...something so simple but amazing. Filmore is a lot of fun too, Lots of shops and recommend making a day of it.

We had breakfast outside and enjoyed dog watching while we waited for food. You order your food inside, get your drinks and a number then seat yourself. We ate outside and people had dogs waiting with them. They had heaters under the awning to keep you warm. We were there Sunday morning around 11am and the whole area was busy.

And in this case...we would agree! The line on a sunny Saturday morning was intimidating but it moved pretty quickly and we were able to snag an outdoor seat for four of us. I ordered the Chinese chicken salad and it was terrific. The kids' menu was fantastic with better-than-normal options including a turkey and avocado sandwich and an almond... More

After a brutal winter in Maine, I was walking around the area looking for a place where I could eat outside and enjoy a perfect morning brunch. I encountered this place and it hit all of my happy buttons. I had perfectly made eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and home-fries with a freshly ground giant coffee. I just sat outside... More

The Grove was awesome. It's in a cool neighborhood with a bit of challenging parking, but not impossible. The service model worked pretty well, but we came in during a rush so there was a bit of wait for food. (You order, pay and they bring it to you. Open seating, 1 hour time limit) The food quality was great... More

Faux Wyoming Ski Cabin look. Now that I got that out of the way, I can say I really like their salads and cookies. They just changed up the menu, and I think they did a good job of adding in more variety and selections. The staff is also super helpful/friendly.

Excellent bar/cafe for brunch - great service, amazing food - the Advocado and Eggs Toast is just what you need. A real neighborhood hangout away from the tourist crowds. Loved it.

We always stay in Japantown when in SF & this place is a short walk. We usually have breakfast, but sometimes it's late & half are having breakfast & half lunch (both are served all day). We ate breakfast here 2 days in a row & when other relatives got in town they wanted to go so we ended up... More
