This was my second time eating at the Urth Cafe. The first one was in Santa Monica. This is a great place to eat while in Los Angeles. The food is consistently good and it's relatively reasonable (for LA). My preference is to do breakfast at this restaurant. Lots of choices for pastries!

OK, I'm an old foggy. This earthy, real café food isn't my cup of tea. Ordered a burger, but the only thing they had was a turkey burger. It's strange. The salad (no fries), was OK for a fancy café, and the place is wall-to-wall with customers, all under 25. Imagine I could find something to like but think I'll... More

If you've overindulged in greasy food and feel adventurous in having a more healthier, but yet delicious food, then Urth Caffe is the way to go. They have locations on Melrose, in Beverly Hills, Downtown LA, and Santa Monica. I prefer the Melrose location. It's street parking, but they do have a Valet option. You order first, then you sit...

Stopped here before a visit to Design Within Reach across the street. Can't have caffeine and decaf usually tastes like old dishwater. However, the iced decaf here was surprisingly good and actually tasted like coffee. Really liked it. It was quite crowded and I had the impression that most people were celebrity-spotting as each time someone entered, people would look.... More

I love this place, great cakes (carrot cake is my fav), and coffees are amazing too since they only source from one place in Uganda (who also only exclusively sell to Urth. The Spanish Latte is by far the best coffee on the menu.

It is hard to find a good coffee in the USA its a nation that loves Starbucks which can explain the poor coffee culture in the USA, however that all changes when you drink the superb coffee at Urth with simple amazing food. We had several dishes an all were fresh from excellent produce and without any salt and other... More

Yes I know most of the time there is a wait and you have to jostle for a table, but the ingredients, the freshness and the overall fun, LA atmosphere of this place gets me every time! I love their Farmers Salad with the baby spinach, the artichokes, the candied pecans...and everything else they serve is good and super fresh.... More

Bit of a wait but worth it. Spending your time people watching, just a fantastic place. Egg dishes for breakfast were nice and good sizes. Organic and fresh food. Lots of choices. Healthy food to choose from. Green tea lattes are a specialty. Can get your food and coffee to go.
