This is certainly a coffee and food spot, but there is no comfort here. The seating on metal chairs, or trying to perch on a stone thin bench, is at best uncomfortable. Today I found the tables on the patio clear of dishes but food all over the tables. Granted its busy, but they need some help in the bussing... More

Like many other Australians in the US, we were in need of a decent coffee - and Urth delivered! The breakfast menu had plenty of variety and was very tasty. Service was prompt. Don't let the fact that you have to queue to order put you off - we were served quickly and didn't have any trouble finding a table.... More

We were in Santa Monica for 3 days. We ate at Urth Cafe for all 3 breakfast/brunches. There you go! I could have spent hours in the pretty, quiet outdoor seating area. Delicious coffees/chai lattes, fresh juices and yummy breakfasts - we tried baked goods, eggs, and fruit salads. TONS of options for all sorts of meals and palates. The... More

Best coffee we had in LA (coming from Australia it was hard to find a coffee that satisfied) & the sandwiches and breakfast burritos were delicious. The patio is gorgeous too!

This is a frequent stop either before or after yoga at Yogaworks or just an excuse for a walk. This place is always busy and we did have brunch one day which was not as good as previous times a year ago, sadly. Probably went there about 10 times over 2 weeks though I believe taste-wise that Espresso Cielo does... More

First of all, let me say this place is extraordinarily busy. I live a couple of blocks from the same café in Beverly Hills. The one in Beverly Hills always has a small little line but you could get through it in about 10 minutes or so. I thought the same thing for the one in Santa Monica, right? Wrong!... More

Beautiful breakfasts, wonderful coffee and freshly squeezed OJ. A bit picey but good value all the same. Don't go at weekends unless you want a long wait.

Great for breakfast and the coffee is real brewed coffee ( not the usual insipid stuff you get in the US) Great Brekkie and breakfast burrito

We had dinner at Urth during a trip to Santa Monica last northern summer. It was very busy that night & since it was our first visit there, we didn't understand the ordering system. Efrem the manager that night was so helpful & friendly. He removed us from the queue, seated us outside on the terrace & took our order... More
