Pretty good!

Ate here twice during our stay in Santa Monica, the food is pretty good and we enjoyed the atmosphere. It can be very busy though.

This restaurant, (and all the Urth Cafes) is always packed with people. It is a bit chaotic, jostling to place an order and find a table, but the food is excellent and the atmosphere is young and fun.

Enjoyed a Delish Lunch at Urth Caffe during vacation in Santa Monica. The Pesto Chicken Sandwich and Margherita Pizza were very good!! Don't forget to get one of their coffees and incredible desserts!

After a couple of hours flight to LA, our friend took me and le husband to Urth cafe - a really great choice of place to bask on the afternoon sun while sipping our exhaustion away with cup of coffees and lattes.

Great little spot for breakfast options and B++ coffee. Tons of organic options plus sweets and breads. Sit outside and watch Santa Monica wake up.

A second visit to this popular cafe and it was just as bad as the first. Horribly tired, cold and boring food. Why do people come here? To be fair the manager who served me was exceptionally helpful. But the experience is terrible. You wait in line, you get disappointed, you wish you had gone somewhere that cared about food.

My fave place in California, it offers great fresh and healthy food at a reasonable price. Breakfast is superb, particularly the burritos and granola with fresh fruit. Good coffee, friendly staff.

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.
