Location: Santa Cruz, CA
We love it when a reader passes along a favorite spot for us to feature! Verve coffee has three locations but their Santa Cruz location really blew me away. With a polished, handmade quality the space feels warm, inviting, social, and relaxed. All great qualities for a community gathering spot and roaster.
I love how the custom L-shaped tables feel substantial yet not cumbersome. Allowing them to have a single support opens up the area underneath and allows more seating along the built-in banquette.
The use of multiple seating groups throughout the space encourages varying activities and personality types.
