The Grove is a café where Lydia Rodarte-Quayle often met Walter White and Todd Alquist at 10am on Tuesday mornings. Lydia always ordered chamomile tea, using stevia to sweeten it.


Season 5

Walt met Lydia here after Mike Ehrmantraut's disappearance to ask her for the names of Mike's "nine guys" so he could arrange their deaths. Lydia acquiesced on the condition that Walt join her venture in selling Blue Sky to her clients in the Czech Republic. ("Gliding Over All")

Walt was later shown meeting Lydia in the café again to exchange money for meth. ("Gliding Over All")

Todd met Lydia after intimidating Skyler White in her home and assured Lydia that she did not need to be killed. He explained to her that the quality of the meth that he and the white supremacists had been able to produce had risen to 92% purity. ("Granite State")

After returning from hiding in New Hampshire, Walt interrupted a meeting between Todd and Lydia at The Grove to pitch a new meth production process to them for the price of $1,000,000. The three agree that Jack Welker should meet Walt that evening. It was revealed later that Walt had poisoned the stevia Lydia used in her tea with ricin. ("Felina")
