Nice bright place for early morning coffee or breakfast (burrito). Also had a great muffin with my coffee. Free wifi makes checking email easy.

Verve is the kind of place Chipotle wishes it was. Rice bowls and burritos are so good they could encourage you to forgo vegetarianism. However, they offer vegan options as well - that are just as delicious. If you need a quick, filling meal before a long drive, I highly suggest hitting up Verve! Did I mention they have coffee,...

Saw on the menu that the Bagels are baked daily at Bagel Central. That might be the case but my bagel certainly wasn't delivered that day. This was a stale dry thing that I wouldn't call a bagel to tell the truth, more like bread in the shape of a bagel. The smoked salmon cream cheese was so-so. The $5... More

Burritos and coffee, can't go wrong here. The food was very fresh and tasty, and the staff helpful and pleasant. I'd rather a place like this than bothering with a larger chain. But then again, a larger chain wouldn't survive in this college town niche market. Verve is a perfect fit.

Got the custom burrito bowls with a combo of chorizo and pork. The pork was the best I ever had, spiced so wonderfully! They have other nice options like garlic habenero sour cream and mango pineapple salsa and a variety of drinks. Cosy atmosphere and cheerful service to boot!

All food is fresh and for the most part organic, as well as meticulously prepared. Very clean. Wonderful friendly service. Good lunches and quick dinners but also breakfast, too, which is even more welcome now that Pat's is closing for breakfast. Love the breakfast burritos best of all, especially the one with lox! If you love burritos, you'll love this... More

If you like burritos, quesadillas and smoothies, this is the place to go. We loved our dinner. My chicken-and cheese quesadilla was warm and soft and I ordered mango/pineapple salsa to go with it. I also had a double mango yogurt smoothie and a chocolate espresso cookie. It was a great meal.

Good coffee and a wonderful bit of food. This is a nice spot to explore and get some coffee or grab a bite to eat. Verve is worth a stop to fuel up for the day.

Menu is limited but all quality ingredients for salads, quesadillas and burritos. Folks building the custom entrees are always cheerful and patient. Salsas are distinctive and hot sauces pack some punch!
