“A Breath of Fresh Air”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Finally, a fantastic café worthy of the Seabright neighborhood has opened in the spot once occupied by Conscious Creations and Black China. The breakfast dishes are innovative and reasonably priced; the service, friendly; the baked goods come from Companion Bakeshop, one of Santa Cruz's best bakeries; and the ambiance is both elegant and warm. Above all, the coffee here is, hands down, the best in town. It's rich and tasty, not bitter or acidic. I'm delighted that the folks at Midtown have introduced me to Acme Roasting and hope both Midtown and Acme challenge Verve's stranglehold on the coffee market.
