This might be the best of the Urth Cafe locations

Great food, nice vibe and reliable coffee. The Urth Cafe has become a food staple in LA. The downtown addition is pretty good choice.

The only problem with this place is long lines (we had to wait about 15 mins to get in), otherwise it's pretty much perfect. It's located in an artsy area with plenty of street parking right off freeway, so easy to get to. The cafe is nice inside and outside. The staff is super nice and friendly. The food is... More

I went to Urth Caffe on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. It was a beautiful day to sit outside. I have heard that the line can be extremely long, however I must have picked the perfect time because there were only a few people in front of me. I ordered the Panini El Diablo because I love spicy. It did... More

We had brunch there and chose to have pizza, egg benedict, green tea boba and caffe mocha. I would say, their beverages are really great. I loved my green tea boba and my friend also like her coffee. The food was good too.

I LOVE Urth!! Don't be scared when you map it. This place will not disappoint!! Although it's surrounded by a lot of cement-y buildings, once you're at the cafe, you feel like you're in someone's diy-ed backyard. Food is amazing. Drinks are amazing. A definite must try!!

This Urth is located in the Arts District of DTLA so a bit further away from the business commotion. I came here for lunch on a Friday and the line was crazy long, but it was moving. I got the Spinach Quesadilla which was great, I loved it. There is plenty of outside seating which is really nice for the... More

Discovered this jewel of a find on a show called, "Food Finds." From then on, I knew I had to try it. Coffee, is amazing! Food delicious! Hard-working cooks and waitstaff Great! I don't mind the wait at all. After all, if someone's not standing in line just to eat your food, then you might want to know...why? :)) --... More

The place to see and be seen, teas and coffees are great as well as the desserts, any other food is bland and flavorless, the place is always packed but the service is fast & efficient, parking is hard.

A group of us coming from different parts of the city met up at Urth for brunch. We lined up and took some time before we could get our food but we were lucky to secure a long table. There must have been 10 of us! Each one had a different dish and we shared a few desserts too! Everyone... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
