Popular family-operated cafe The Grove, which has locations in Pacific Heights, Yerba Buena and Hayes Valley, is now headed to the Design District. It's set to take over the corner space of a new development at One Henry Adams Street (at Division).
Owners Kenneth and Anna Zankel have been on the hunt for a new Grove location ever since their Chestnut Street cafe shuttered four years ago. In 2015, they finally secured a long-term lease within Equity Residential’s One Henry Adams, a 1.65-acre and residence apartment community on Townsend Circle in Showplace Square.
The development will include 8,600 square feet of retail space, said Jim Kelly, Equity Residential's first vice president for development. The Grove will occupy 3,600 square feet, with views of the historic Two Henry Adams Building and Townsend Circle roundabout.
Like the other locations, The Grove will serve an eclectic menu, with full breakfast options (like French toast and breakfast burritos), salads, sandwiches, entrees like mac and cheese and slow-cooked chicken, and cookies and cakes for dessert. Also on offer: Verve coffee, fresh-squeezed juices, tea, and beer and wine.
The location is set to open this summer, but tipster Al M. tells us that it's still in its early stages of construction, and no official opening date has been set.
