Grove is pleased to offer coffee, soup, salad, and sandwich bar, including daily hot specials and ready-to-go items. The Grove offers homemade pizzas, fries, combos and pub food.

Located on the lower level of Grenfell Campus, Memorial University, The Grove dining hall offers a variety of fare. With a fresh new look, the area accommodates approximately 175 patrons at any given time and can be reconfigured to accommodate additional seating.

Management and employees of The Grove have been a leading force in western Newfoundland’s service industry for more than 20 years and are excited and committed to offering a menu created with the well-being and interests of the student body in mind.

Come visit us this fall to enjoy fresh salads, soups and daily home-cooked meals, along with popular favourites including pizzas, fries and burgers.  Fill your evenings with nutritious meals too and, before heading back, pick up one of our ready-to-go items.


Commitment to Safety – Covid-19

At the Grove we are fully committed to keeping our students and staff members safe.  We now have plexiglass installed at all of our counters and have eliminated self-service stations.  Social distancing requirements remain at our lineups, and our enhanced cleaning and sanitization practices continue in full accordance with NL and CMO guidelines and protocols.  We understand how difficult this past year and a half has been for our students and are committed to doing everything we can to ensure you experience a safe return.  We have certainly missed you!
