Very good dishes, good service and great atmosphere. Try the Slow Chicken with Lemon and Olives. And dessert Macchia: Vanilla organic ice cream sandwiched between two Double Chocolate Homemade Cookies.

Places that get breakfast just right are always a good find. Here the food was fresh and flavorful. The staff, despite being very busy, was uniformly friendly. Don't be scared off by what might look like a long line. You order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. It moves fast and the food comes out... More

We went for lunch before going to MOMA-- a great decision! I had apple and chicken salad which was large and terrific; husband had Cubano sandwich which he wasn't too happy with, as it was a different type than he was used to. Order salad with your sandwich if you get the grilled cheese or veggie. Bread is from Semifreddo.... More

Simple food, but it is delicious! You have wait in line to order at the counter and then seat yourself which is nice because you know how long you have to wait. Loved the atmosphere

Salads, soups, sandwiches, entrees. Friendly workers. Inside and outside seating available. Trendy casual atmosphere. Little on loud side. Had hand pulled homemade chicken salad sandwich. Was served open face on nice piece of bread. Got mixed greens in lieu of French fries. Came with deli pickle. Overall, very tasty. Thought is was a little pricy, but are downtown. Would return.

I ate at The Grove recently while attending a trade show at the Moscone Center. The breakfast menu had many great options. Everything my group tried was delicious. This is a great choice for breakfast in the area around Market, Mission and the Moscone Center. The atmosphere is casual and the staff was very friendly. Thank you for a great... More

Stumbled upon The Grove by direction of our hotel concierge. Wanted a lunch spot with good food, and they nailed it! My daughter is a vegetarian and had a wonderful sandwich. My steak sandwich and beer was just what I needed.

Quick service but not 'fast food'. Visited for breakfast and for lunch. Heaters make it nice to sit outside (despite the traffic) to watch the world go by.

The breakfast here was awesome! I almost went multiple times on my trip, but wanted to try different restaurants. The food was well prepared and didn't take too long to be delivered. I had a nice seat at the espresso bar; watching the barista make drinks added to a good experience.....the smell of fresh coffee too!

Thank Asher P

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.
