The Grove Café & Market opened it’s doors in June of 2006, in Albuquerque New Mexico’s trendy Edo neighborhood. Owned and operated by Jason and Lauren Greene, The Grove quickly became Albuquerque’s favorite breakfast, brunch and lunch café serving up the finest local food, in a fun, casual atmosphere.
Jason, a New England Culinary Institute alum, worked in kitchens since he was 16 years old, honing his skills in wonderful restaurants around the country. His passion for using the highest quality ingredients and working with local farmers and artisans became the focus of his menu at The Grove. Lauren learned operations and marketing from an earlier hotel career in Las Vegas, NV and Scottsdale, AZ. They had a dream of creating a community gathering spot that integrated the art of hospitality in a fun, bustling, café atmosphere, where friends and family come to relax, and enjoy good food.
Today, The Grove is just that place. With a team of over 30 culinary-minded individuals, The Grove has grown! In addition to daily service, a full Catering menu is offered with pick up or drop off service. The Grove continues to focus on serving the highest quality food products in a neighborhood friendly environment.
We are bringing the community a team of professional, high energy, food savvy individuals that have one common goal in mind…to serve the highest quality food products while focusing on a neighborhood friendly environment. We create and offer the best food experience in Albuquerque, and never forget to connect to our customers.
