Verve Coffee, DTLA
We are kind of obsessed with coffee shops, and Verve Coffee DTLA is definitely one of our all-time favourites. Maybe it's the giant living walls that make the perfect patio for selfies, or the convenient and oh-so-delicious partnership with Juice Served Here. Either way, we are smitten with the Downtown LA sister store to the Santa Cruz staple.
Verve Coffee started as a local micro-roastery in Santa Cruz (and we love it there too). This café is a little more grown-up from the chill surf vibes of their hometown, and we love the finesse put into every detail. Especially the patio, there's a reason that Instagram is so obsessed with it.
If you want to switch up your morning coffee for some fruits and vegetables instead, Juice Served Here has you covered. They sell local, organic cold-pressed juices along with a juice bar menu of shots and shakes. But the juice tasting menu is a must try! Think beer tasting, but with juice. Feeling like a baller? They even have a $20 juice...
We tried the juice flights with our friends Adam Van-Houten & Colby Barr (co-owner of Verve). The cold sparkling probiotic beverages are a new addition to Verve, and we are obsessed.
