Breakfast / Brunch Hours
Saturday and Sunday: 10 am – 2 pm.
Located in Columbia City, Verve is right around the corner from the busy Geraldine’s Counter. Immediate seating, then leisurely and worth the wait during my visit on a Sunday morning.
My over medium eggs were a tad greasy for my taste, but cooked perfectly over medium, and with an unexpected, delicious hint of coriander… it appeared not directly intentional, since the coriander was visible (but less noticeable) in the hash browns. Perfectly crispy on one side; almost creamy on the other, the shredded potatoes qualify as #nomnom and just right in size… not too big, not too little. Just right.
The wild greens with a light vinaigrette are a lovely, unexpected touch.
My perfectly cooked bacon arrived late, after a little bit of confusion… but oh my, the bacon for dessert was just splendid. Crispy all the way from first bite to last, but not overcooked.
The bottom line: If their eggs are always just a hint tinged with coriander, Verve might just have me as a regular.
Bonus points: When asked if they have soy milk for their yummy Stumptown coffee (+1), their answer was “Regular or Vanilla?” (+2). More bonus points: their extensive Benedict menu. I overhead a neighboring diner being asked if they would like an extra side of Hollandaise (with tarragon, as it should be).
