Mellow, little neighborhood place to eat

The Grove is well known in SF for breakfast and lunch. It is not a fancy place to go grab something to eat. In other words, people don't get dressed up. It is mostly locals rolling out of bed or visiting with friends for brunch/lunch and they serve dinner items as well. On a sunny day, there... read more

Stopped in here on a rainy day for a mocha and to chat. We ended up staying for a while and having lunch as well. The mocha's are very flavorful and leave you wanting more. We had avocado toast and the breakfast special (yes! they serve breakfast ALL DAY!). This place does get really busy and loud at times but... More

Whenever we stay in the area, we make it a point to eat breakfast/brunch at The Grove. I don't think they need a good review as the quickly moving line out the door should speak volumes. I look forward to our return!

I was looking for a place to have a late lunch and found the Grove, Fillmore. It was a lovely sunny day and I was able to sit for 2 hours in a window seat with a pillow at my back. I ordered the roasted chicken with quinoa and veggies. It was flavorful, and delicious. The staff was super nice... More

a really popular/busy place but the line to order moved quickly and the food was excellent given how busy it was. The manager was great - we fell foul of the no sitting at a table till you have ordered but he politely let us know. Being from san diego that was appreciated as if it had happened in SD... More

Very popular place in the Fillmore neighborhood, with lines on weekends. I tried the classic hot dog that was just OK. It is good for a quick break while visiting the area

This is the 2nd time to visit on my business trip. I'd recommend this cafe if you are staying in San Francisco and got up early. There is line in 9:30AM so you should have plenty of time. Busy, but nice people good food.

The Grove offers a simple American menu at very reasonable prices and delivers food which is consistent and tasty. The interior is rustic, themed in a ranch style which was warm and comfortable. Ordering and paying happens at the counter but food is brought to your table and the waiters follow up to see if you need anything. For a... More

Hey... your out and about in Pac Heights... strolling Fillmore... why would you not stop for a great brunch? I hadn't been here in 3 years and decided to see if it was the same. It was just perfect. Salmon Eggs Benedict and a large fresh OJ. It is so nice to have an exceptional known entity to rely on... More
