Brunch with Lowell, Carolyn and Mal
Grove is a wonderful little cafe on the corner of Chestnut and Avila (between Pierce and Scott). We met Carolyn and Mal for a noonish Sunday brunch. There are seats on the sidewalk outside as well as benches along a large window that looks out into the street. You have to get in line to order your food or drinks, but they bring them to you at your seat.
AWESOME Bloody Mary's, thick and spicy with garnishes of spicy peppers, olives and green beans. They also come in a glass that has to be a foot tall. The food was equally impressive in size -- the breakfast burrito looks like a baby seal -- and you can ask for additional ingredients like bacon or guacamole. Carolyn and Lowell had Dave's Downfall (I think) which is a eggs benedict with avocado. Sides of bacon, salad and 4-cheese mac & cheese were nice too. (We might have overeaten). Our neighbors had some good looking coffee drinks.
Cute brunch place with great Bloody Mary's. Parking is a pain but it is the Marina.
