Great food and great service!

For the event I was helping to put on, we got a platter from Urbane Cafe with six of their most popular sandwiches and a large salad. It was ready on time for pick-up and the food was AMAZING.

this is a bustling corner restaurant that moves you through the line quickly, so don't be 'put off' if there is a line! The food is healthy and GOOD!!! I had a quinoa chicken salad that was yummy!

After reading the reviews of Urbane Cafe, I took my daughter and husband there. It was pretty crowded, but we did find a seat outside. Prices were not bad for the food - but the water and juices were pricey and there was no option for sodas or tapwater that I could see. I had the Tuscan veggie sandwich -... More

Each time my parents are in town, my mom asks for soup and then to go to that place we went last time. It's Urbane! We haven't found many places on the Central Coast that serve soup but these flatbread sammies and soup and salad combinations are delicious. Everyone who goes always finds something they love! Great lunch spot, great... More

We had a variety of sandwiches which all came with a really nice side salad. The roast beef had beautiful lean flavorful beef. The bread is really good and clearly house baked. Sandwiches were under $8 and definitely well priced. They were accommodating and really organized. At 2 pm on a Tuesday, they were pretty packed but very quick. Atmosphere... More

I like everything about this quick, casual eating establishment. You order at the register, and receive a table buzzer when your food is ready. Excellent outdoor covered seating too - where one can watch people walking up and down busy Higuera Street (the main street) while eating. The bread is made in-house, the sandwiches come with a large, fresh, arugula... More

Fresh bread with well put together large sandwiches. Great choice of a few soups. Nice place to have a quick lunch if needed.

This is a terrific lunch place. When we're travelling we often stop here or at their sister shop in Santa Clarita CA. The food is very fresh; they make their own bread and it is delicious. Soups are homemade and hearty. I usually have a bowl of soup and the Turkey Club. I've had one or two of their other... More

Good fresh food and good service. I had the BLAT sandwich and it came on a roll that they made themselves. You can watch the guys making them. My sister had the chicken salad roll and two other friends had two of the salads, fresh and tasty both! Good place for lunch definitely!
