The smiley staff member delivered our very reasonably priced coffee and cake order very promptly. Verve is on the main drag of Gisborne and was open on a long weekend Sunday.

Went in to escape the rain. Ordered 2 bowls of coffee and couple of delicious slices. Good variety on offer and reasonable priced. Coffee was great on a cold day. The barista was lovely to chat to and was very welcoming. Cosy cafe.

Number one in Gisborne, Verve has been operating for as long as I can remember. The coffee is the best in town, and you'll never be disappointed by the food. Nice atmosphere, central location and pleasant staff.

Have now had several visits to Verve and just had to let everyone know about it. Being a big fan of sweet treats I find myself here every trip to Gisborne - selecting is a difficult task!
