Great family restaurant

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Stopped here for late lunch with my wife and 2 children on our way around SF. There is no table service here so you need to find somewhere, choose your drinks and food and go order at the bar. The food arrives in good time and the chicken pot pie is excellent, as... read more

Setting: Nice restaurant with groovy interior western decor. Very down to earth with lots of wood and stones. Parking on street and difficult. You order first and then you sit. Food: Pastries fresh and juicy. Homemade granola with fruit was outstanding. Fresh made orange juice. Caffe latte was too hot and boring. Outdoor seating available. Service: To place the order...

The Grove is often full with lunch crowd, or folks grabbing coffee or a glass of wine. Works well for those situations but not so much a full destination dinner. Has outside, café type seating as well as space indoors. Creative décor and convivial atmosphere!

My daughter just moved to the area, so we were in search for breakfast. The Grove was inviting with its outdoor seating and open windows in the main dining area. The menu is extensive, you walk up to the counter, order and they bring you your food. The food was wonderful, everything cooked just as we had requested. The decor... More

I would like anyplace that serves lavender lemonade. However, this place also had great outdoor seating and a really nice staff.

We ate twice at the Fillmore location and twice at the Mission location during a recent stay. We were much more impressed with the food and service at the Fillmore location. Same breakfast meal (granola) tasted better at Fillmore., and more generous serving. Coffee re-fills were free at Filmore vs $1 at Mission. Good variety for breakfast, and excellent sandwiches....

A great buzzing place with a fabulous choice of local fare for breakfast/brunch. Very reasonable. Counter service only. Hash browns, benedicts, sandwiches, an array of eggs plus delicious coffees, juices, smoothies. It gets very busy, so try get there before Church ends. There is outdoor seating, if this is preferred. Recommended.

We had lunch on the sunny terrasse. It as OK not more. Orange juic was supposed to be fresh, taste was really the one you get from bottles bought at the supermarket. Very noisy.

Took a minute or two to realise that it was counter service - duh... While visiting, found this gem by chance - great atmosphere and the best salad in SF - I had the Berkeley bowl salad and very fresh and the flavours were amazing. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu - on another evening, returned for... More

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
