UnUrban Café is a Santa Monica must! Many people think of SaMo in terms of 3rd Street Promenade, the Pier, Main Street, and Montana Avenue, but there is so much more to this fabulous city! The flip side of all that upscale consumer-friendly business is absolutely UnUrban: a masterpiece of kitsch and coffee, proudly jutting out on the corner of... More

When I dine in I like real coffee in real cups. If I choose to go to Starbucks I accept that I will get paper cups. The coffee at Un- Urban was too weak & with a polystyrene after taste. That place needs a big overhaul. Give it a miss ..

Great coffee, hip building (a bit run down, but I think that is part of the charm), interesting neighborhood. Seems to have an active (mostly female) community that meets there regularly (in a back room). Easy walk from Travelodge. Neat (but inconspicuous) French pastry shop nearby.

A local landmark that is an acquired taste, little more casual than I need first thing in the morning.

I was in Santa Monica on a solo trip over June/July 2011 and was staying in the Travelodge just across the road and this place was a godsend! Good priced coffee, free wi-fi and always something "interesting" going on of an afternoon/evening! OK let's answer some of the critics. Yes, the place looks ramshackle; if you don't like that look... More

The Unurban is a neat-o little cafe with a great atmosphere and friendly people. Their tea is very yummy, and they have a good selection of sandwiches / soups / bakery stuffs. Lots of outlets for your laptop (free wifi) and comfy furniture; a great place to stop and relax.
