Great coffee/tea/smoothie with freshly prepared food at a reasonable price!

For the insiders, the Urth Caffe has become an institution. I visit this place at least once when I am in Los Angeles area and have been to four different locations.

Very tasty. Overpriced. And it takes forever to get your order. So many people working there not sure what they are doing.

We stopped into this cafe for lunch while staying in Santa Monica. It was very crowded. The service was lacking - client orders were processed conveyer belt style. Our meal was very average. Before leaving we ordered several baked goods 'to go' (since we were enroute to visit friends in the area) and ended up waiting more than ten minutes... More

Urth has the best salads and sandwiches. I've visit here every time I come to LA and meet clients here. They have a wide range of teas to choose from and great selections from vegan to carnivore.

My partner and I had heard awesome things about Urth Caffe. I ordered the margarita pizza and a mocha, my partner got the egg and ham sandwich (he had actually ordered the eggs alone.. No sandwich but whatever) and a milkshake. I enjoyed my meal. You can't really stuff up a pizza though so it was an easy win. My... More

Love the salads and sandwiches here. The coffee is superb and the teas are showcased. Surprise! Urth has valet if you can't find a parking spot (which can be an issue ... try parking in the SM city lots and walking down Main St. if you can just to enjoy the experience.)

We waited over an hour for a minimal and incomplete order. Obnoxious staff who do not seem to be concerned about their purpose in this crowded sloppy and free for all 'cafe'. Expensive and overrated items. I personally would have left but my friends were my guests. Go anywhere else.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
