Wonderful Breakfast Spot

This is a great place to enjoy breakfast with friends or family. Eat inside or out on the sweet patio. Well organized - order first; find a table and food delivered to you! All fresh; some organic and some local. Sourdough toast - olive bread toast - jams made on premises - local sausage. The... read more

The food lacks taste, service is fair, and the prices match the service. Over all I did not enjoy the Grove, and wondered what others saw in it.

Lots of different dishes on this menu. Seems to be geared toward "healthy choices", but not too sure if they make the mark on every dish. However, the meals we have eaten there have proven to be good.

It's easy to see why finding a table some days is difficult - the food is deliciously fresh and the light and airy decor make this place a personal favourite of mine when I'm in the city. I've never had a disappointing meal here and I really recommend their coffee and cupcakes as a treat to go.

Food had no flavor felt like I could easily make it at home with way better flavor and I'm not a cook at all.

We brought our family here for lunch. While it might be a little pricey, the food was fresh and very tasty. My son tried the pancakes which were not your normal American style pancakes, but my son loved them. I had the breakfast sandwich which was also fantastic. Our other son had the turkey sandwich which was also great. All... More

We stopped by for a Saturday morning breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. My husband and I had the French pancakes. They were more like crepes than the traditional fluffy cakes we are used to and they were delicious! They came piled with fresh local fruit, strawberries, apples and grapes. The fruit was fresh, crisp and flavorful. The pancakes had... More

We came into Albuquerque and needed a late lunch. Found this in TripAdvisor. Called from the car to confirm that pets were welcome--they have a patio outdoors. The place is an upscale coffee and sandwich shop. Friendly servers and good food. Not cheap, though.

There are many quality breakfast restaurants in downtown Albuquerque. Of them all, this is the most popular. I have to admit, we often skip this place due to the long lines. But I've been here from breakfast and lunch and everything was good. Very happy dining room and outdoor seating, too. Good choice for out-of-town visitors to showcase ALBQ.

The food is fresh in a farm to table way. However, you have to order at the counter and the service is extremely slow. The restaurant is noisy, making it difficult to have a nice conversation. With those caveats, I do eat here occasionally and enjoy it, it just is not at the top of my go-to list.
