Great coffee & friendly helpful service. Appears to be very popular with locals. Baristas went out of their way to make our coffee to our liking.

Hands down best coffee in Santa Cruz/Capitola area. Hard to beat the taste, vibe and atmospheric quality of Verve. I like the napkin wrap vs hot barrier sleeve. Wish I had the waistline to try the pastries, as they looked over the top scrumptious!

Well, it seems like a lot of students like it but really its for everyone. Very organic! I had at the macchiato and the guy wanted to serve me a cappuccino. Need a little training.

My iced latte is always perfect, especially when I get a delicious monkey bread to enjoy it with. The baristas are always super nice. Good place to stay and do some reading or just get your caffeine and sugar fix to go.

If I am ever within 50 miles of Capitola, I come here for an espresso. "Amazing" doesn't even cover it. Get here now and be ready to be blown away.

Okay, we're not coffee drinkers, but iced tea and hot chocolate. With the exception of Europe, this coffee shop hands' down has the best hot chocolate that I've ever tasted. The staff is always upbeat and the line is normally very long. They have WiFi, so it's a great hang out place for using it as a workspace. The parking... More

Great place to grab a latte to go, walk towards Opal Cliffs and Pleasure Point, or stay and watch the world, and surfers, go by :)
