We have nothing but good things to say about Verve. The coffee is excellent and the pastries and sandwiches are some of the best cafe foods in the city. The space in the Castro is set up to accommodate maximum hangout time by yourself or with a group. As required by the city, they have avocado toast. It’s good.
