Another great coffee shop is headed to Historic Core/Fashion District

Verve Coffee Roasters, the Santa Cruz-based shop which has long planned a retail operation in Los Angeles, is finally close to opening their first cafe in the Downtown within the next few weeks. Located on the corner of 8th and Spring, it's a bright, open space with great frontage onto Spring Street, just a few blocks from where Coffee Bar used to stand (it's since turned into Beelman's Pub).

Up the street, there's also Spring for Coffee while Elabrew opened a month ago along 6th street. But Verve gets the luxury of using their own beans, with a roasting operation launching soon in the Arts District (they'll invariably get roasted beans from their Santa Cruz until then). The opening date for this first Verve location is currently slated for early January after some construction setbacks pushed their initial December debut.
