Editorial review from Citysearch

We frequent The Grove whenever we're in town. Good, solid food and great service.

Add in Wi-Fi (when it is working) and The Grove is golden.

Made me a fan of salads

I am not a big salad fan, but I absolutely love their chicken Caesar salad with the toatsed bread on the side. They also have these delicious big flat crunchy chocolate chip cookies that are difficult to resist. The only thing I don't like about this place is there are not enough useable seating areas. The tables to the side and outside are ok but it's kind of annoying to eat while sitting in their more lounge type areas.

Second office in a pinch

The Grove serves as a great office in a pinch if working a job without an actual office. I usually crash this lofty spot in the afternoon and choose one of their tasty teas to complement my internet browsing. The cuban sandwich with extra pickles has made me very happy here, and their chips are totally worth the extra time on the treadmill at the gym.



Great ambiance, good looking p...

Great ambiance, good looking people (that's because it's my neighborhood rocks!), good food and service. The place reminds me of being inside a ski resort.

Love this place!

The wood floors and old furniture add to the ambiance of this trendy coffee house. There is much more than just coffee though. Amazing smoothies, delicious cakes, fabulous selection of beer...they have a wonderful variety. This place is a great alternative to the crazy night on the town. If you want to get together with some friends and actually be able to carry a conversation w/out screaming aver loud music, this is a fun place. Enjoy!

Worst breakfast I've ever had with Flies!!

This is a hole in the wall with NO charm and terrible food! The breakfast was AWEFUL! Cold eggs, undercooked hasbrowns and bad fruit. You're better off staying at home and making the same stuff and actually eating it. I left it all and walked out! The bus boys were polite and that was it! BAD BAD BAD! It ruined my day!! How can you mess up on eggs, toast and hash???

Great place to chill

Great place to hang out and study and have a coffee on a weeknight. Also when the weather's nice, a great place to sit outside and have a glass of wine. The baked goods and coffee are great, the ambiance is so cozy. It's like you're on an episode of Friends.

Love it

Great place to read, people watch, do work (free wireless!), or lounge. Excellent beer/wine selection with solid menu selection for all three meals. Love this neighborhood Marina hangout.

Who knew they served food until 11:00

Looking for a late night dinner or snack try The Grove. It seems that everyplace on Chestnut closes at 10pm except The Grove. It's a casual place with beer, wine and assorted other drinks. The food is always good and the portions satisfying.

Get a seat by the window

This is a outstanding place to watch the activity on Chestnut. Try for a seat outside or near the open air windows. The food is pretty good, but fairly standard. I had the breakfast burrito, which was a dab of sour cream and scoop more avocado away from great. I would recommend the oatmeal with bananas, strawberries, and brown sugar. Great for those with a sweat tooth.

There is no real service to speak of as you place your order up front and find a seat. The ambiance is bustling with many folks just enjoying a coffee or tea.
