Long line to order lunch, then a wait for a table, then one of our party had to go back because they lost her order, but they recovered quickly and brout her food in five minutes. Great kalamata olives, bread, portabelo a sandwich and humus. I am told it is frequented by celebrities but none at our visit

My family enjoys this place everytime we are in town. The blended green tea boba with coconut is my fave. This time I tried the matcha tiramisu which was rich and yummy. My daughter and her friend had sandwiches with their green tea boba and liked them-- the caprese had basil chifonade; the grilled cilantro chicken w pesto. Outdoor patio... More

This is one of my favorite spots in LA. It's a great place to hang out, enjoy some good lunch and just watch people around. Their boba tea is good, give it a try!

Have tried two of the Urth Caffes now and will no doubt be having breakfast there for the rest of our holiday. The de caff coffee is full of flavour and not at all weak and tasteless. The granola bowl with berries keeps you fuelled up all day. Counter service is good but in both of the ones we visited... More

These places have great espresso drinks, pastries, salads, sandwiches and breakfasts. They are very popular so, if you go at a peak time, be patient. The tables outside are very nice when the weather is mild.

Fresh organic food with lots of choices. We split two dishes, the Urth Salad (feta, chick peas, lettuce, hearts of palm) and the Curry chicken (over a salad). Both were great. I scoped out the food at other tables and the sandwiches and drinks looked so yummy. We got tasty gluten free bread with ours and we had a delicious... More

This is just the kind of place I hoped to visit in California. We arrived early enough to get a table, just before it got crowded. There was a great vibe with lots of different types of people. It was a cool evening but sitting outside was comfortable with the gas heaters going. I ordered something called a rice wrap,... More

Famous for appearing in Entourage so it's really busy, with tourists and locals. But worth a visit, the service was really good and the staff really pleasant. The food was well prepared, presented and tasted great for a Cafe. We hand sandwiches and make sure you leave room for desert. We visited Urth Cafe for lunch after sight seeing in... More

I was all set to write a bad review. The only reason we were going here was because my teenage daughter said it was the place to be. When we got there, it felt like a tourist trap, and the crowd matched. After waiting on the ridiculous line, we then ordered. The cashier really did not rush us and was... More
