For carrot cake craving!

A very busy place, however they have a very efficient and effective team to cope up with the line. It is a bump to bump tables space; no reservations and pay as you order at the cashiers. I love their carrot cake, and all others. Portions of the foods are good for its price; you can spot incognito... read more

A bit crowded but well worth it. The flourless chocolate cake is the best!! Nice ambience. Service could be faster but not so bad. Parking a bit tight

Outside eating too,super fantastic cappuccino ,salads that are leaping up and down on your plate,with color,crispness,variety,flavor......Can't say enough. The honey sweetened deserts are sooooooogood. Anything unhealthy drives right past. as fast as it can. Now, there's often a wait for a table,because of the popularity factor but, so worth it. There are lots of shops around,but watch out, you may... More

You can't miss Urth. It looks like a cottage slightly off-set from Melrose Avenue. This is my second visit and I wasn't disappointed. Every dish seems to come with some unexpected value added. For example the roast beef hash came with large chunks of meat (not shredded). Excellent. The espresso was strong and good. The bakery is outstanding. The Tiramisu... More

Let's face it - Urth Caffe is the place to see and be seen in the non-drinking LA Arab community. Order an herbal fusion tea, and watch the latest fashions from the Middle East. The food is reliable and quick - perhaps a bit too quick if you want to linger and be on the social seen. It's a great... More

Took my kids to urth cafe for lunch. They ordered simple salads and it took over an hour to bring the food. Was just too busy and crowded. Would not go back.

Great healthy options on the menu. We had Greek salad with chicken, avocado wraps, poached eggs, sausage and potato omlete, Urth Salad, kale salad and smoothies. Good was delivered quickly after we were seated and was very fresh and delicious. If you can tolerate a line and chaos until being seated it is worth the visit!

I went to the Beverley Hills branch the day before and the experience far exceed this branch. It was super, super busy which is a given as they are popular but it was just so rammed here and the wait time was a joke. Just under an hour for our food. Personally the food quality I think is better in... More

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
