I have eaten here many times, and sampled pretty much the whole menu. The food is mostly organic, all fresh, no preservatives, cooked simply- but very tasty. The salads are all excellent. My favorite is their version of a Reuben Sandwich. Its not a big loaded with Pastrami Deli style- but just the right amount of everything with no guilt... More

Great burrito but the food was the only positive aspect of my visit for breakfast. It was fast, cold, un personal, uncomfortable seating - drafty, hard chairs, not much warmth or comfort. I asked for a green tea and it took a while to identify one which was neither flavoured with mint nor puffed rice.

We went in the middle of the afternoon during a long walk from Santa Monica to Venice and back via the Urth Caffe. I had reservations on entering... it looks a little like a posh motorway service centre trying to be a European cafe where the tills are and the menus don't say quality either. However, the juices, the coffee... More

With a wide variety, the salads and deserts are my choice. And, the bread w/sweet butter and the coffee are outstanding, always a test of an establishment, and this test receives the score of 100%. The service too is 100%. Without reservations this restaurant is a go.

We had coffee and croissants with a berry bowl on the terrace. Really yummy - I splurged and had brie and jam too.

If you like queuing, you'll love this place! Queue to order, queue for a table ... the setting is nice with a lovely sunny patio. The ethos of the place is to get 'em in, get 'em out. The food was ok but nothing special - I had the mexican-style omlette, which was minutes away from Freesbie consistency. Good selection... More

Urth Cafe is my favorite cafe hands down comparing it to almost any town or city with maybe the exception being the Dushanbe Tea House in Boulder. I've eaten many times @ Urth Cafe and the food is always consistently very good as are the coffees. I love the honey vanilla latte, I still haven't found a better latte and... More

People want to go here - trendy, popular, with so so food imo. The lines for ordering are often out the door, finding a seat can be difficult at times. One of the few places that won't allow your dog to sit with you outside - for me that's important especially now that the state law has been changed.
