Love to visit the Farmer’s Market on Thursday night in downtown. For those of us that do not eat meat this is the perfect place for dinner during the market. The sandwiches are lovely and the bread they make on site is some of the best I have ever had. Not sure where the picture came from on this listing... More

Urbane Cafe, a nice restaurant in the middle of town. Across the street is an Apple Store, people are walking, chatting, laughing. Picture it, a warm summer day, a cool breeze blowing thru the patio, all while you are enjoying an amazing panini with a friend. The food is fresh, the flavor is incredible, and the bread is to die... More

A self service restaurant. You place your order on line and then they ring you when it is ready. Salads were large and delicious and they will customize per your request. Very clean and friendly.

Don't let the short line scare you away. Service was fast and food was excellent. Think Panera with better soup and sandwiches.

Each and every time we visit our daughter at college, my wife insist we stop at the Urbane Cafe and I don't argue. The Rosemary Chicken sandwich is my wife and daughter's favorite. Grilled Rosemary Chicken, Roasted Red Bell Pepper, Provolone Cheese, Green Leaf Lettuce, Tomato Aioli. I am a big fan of the Hot Pastrami and haven't ever been... More

We frequent urbane cafes whenever we find them..and this one was a stand out! First off..their was lots of beautiful wood in the decor..and they had booths to sit in..in a very large seating area. Much bigger and more decorated than any urbane cafe I had ever stayed before. The food had some new choices as well..such as the kale... More

What a wonderful location, menu, staff, and food! well now that I have summed it up, how about some details! The salad was wonderful, and the baby arugula is my wife's favorite and she was raving. The vegetarian sandwich I had was The Californian and it was perfect. Just perfect. Artichoke hearts, avocado, herb mayo, jack cheese and well yum!... More

An excellent sandwich in a great time frame! Seating is on the street so you can people watch as you eat. They offered a wide array of salads, but the Hot Pastrami got me! The place is clean, well run, and the fresh bread is a plus!

Ate here while shopping in downtown SLO; fresh, yummy & innovative salads! Have eaten here before & we have never been disappointed. If you're looking for quick, fresh food (not sit down with table service) this is the perfect spot....enjoy!

We were disappointed with the food at Urbane. I ordered broccoli cheddar soup - it was watery and bland. And I ordered the grown-up grilled cheese sandwich - it contained 3 different types of cheese and avocado. It sounded really - how can you go wrong with ingredients as tasty as cheese and avocado? but unfortunately, this sandwich lacked flavor.... More
