    If you take a good look around once you step in, you can tell that there's a history behind this restaurant. Had their bruschetta appetizer and mac n cheese for my main dish, and both of them were wonderful. I'd recommend stopping by if you're in the area and in need of some good eats.

    This Grove is like an updated Hipster patron meets Hippie diner. Or is it the other way around?

    The newest outpost of The Grove collection is here in the "up and coming" (the real estate agents have been saying this for decades, but it is finally happening) Hayes Valley, just a block off Van Ness.

    The food is simple comfort food, unpretentious and not overly imaginative, just beyond what you might serve at home to a friend who stopped by, and really not much more than diner food without the chain restaurant logo and florescent lights. A smattering of breakfast choices al about $8 be it bagel or traditional American style, simple, eclectic entrees for lunch or dinner in the $12 range, i.e. Skirt steak, Cous Cous, Pot pie, etc.

    The space is very inviting, right on the corner on Hayes. A lot of large glass windows. Inside the interior is dominated by untreated wood flooring, a huge center trellis/gazebo constructed of large natural lumber, and a huge flagstone fireplace. A little bit of a rustic Tahoe resort decor not far from the gritty Civic Center of SF. Their are some very interesting pieces of furniture, rich in woods and leathers. great to look at, not all comfortable to sit in. The little round stools are precariously wobbly and hard.

    This just opened two months ago, and it is a nice place to hang out, talk with a friend, or sit and do Yelp reviews while sipping a coffee or tea.

    Yes, this is the same Grove that is so popular on Filmore, Chestnut and a couple of other places in the City where mostly educated singles congregate for a casual encounter when they are recuperating from dining in a chic, fancy and expensive restaurant that they are compelled to go to occasionally to keep their Facebook friends impressed and jealous. Here, they can just relax without the pretense.
    (Facebook is optional)

    The Grove has taken the 1970's Berkeley restaurant with hanging plants, little colored stained glass windows, eclectic upscale garage sale furniture pieces motif, raw wood beams and accents, and updated it for a new generation of urban singles looking for something their little efficiency apartment in the tenderloin can't provide, and charging a reasonable price for it to bring them back again. The signed rock photos on the walls adds to this vibe.

    Terrific sandwiches, salads, and breakfast. Rosemary hash browns are amazing. Berkeley bowl salad is also a classic as us their turkey blt. This is the eggs florentine, Dave's way.
