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.
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???
Bohemian hipsters flock to the casual comfort of this happening cafe--a refreshing escape from the usual ultra-trendy Marina scene. – Redwood tables and old ski-lift chairs fill this funky cafe with flavor and charm, creating a cozy ambience that keeps patrons coming back. But it's not just the interior decor that makes this spot a popular Chestnut Street hangout: the menu, which is served from 7am to 11pm daily, offers home-style cuisine with a hipster flair. Regulars love the macaroni and cheese made with gruyere and fontina and the Grove club sandwich.
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.
