The Ask

The Grove is an independently owned café with three locations spread across San Francisco proper (a fourth location opens in 2017). Named “San Francisco’s Living Room” by Spotted by Locals, The Grove needed a site that evoked the same cozy comfort of its restaurant spaces. The owners wanted a website that was easy to edit and fully responsive, with high performance and beautiful design that matched the woodsy, soulful atmosphere of the café.

Our Solution

The Grove’s previous website was built on a WordPress template filled with unnecessary code and plugins. That extra code slowed performance and made the user experience feel clunky. Mangrove worked with design partner Public to deliver a newly optimized WordPress site showing off the vibrant personality and delicious offerings of this bustling hub. The new site easily accommodates restaurant menu changes and location updates through its custom backend setup, and delivers this information efficiently and smoothly to its hungry clientele.
