Noticeably good for a franchise restaurant.

First of all it is Urbane Cafe, not Urban Cafe. This is one of the very few chain restaurants to which I would give 4 circles. Like almost all franchise food places the food tends toward bland so that it does not displease people. The food has been, however, fresh each of the three times we have... read more

Urbane has good clean creative food. It may have a little bit of a wait but is well worth it. Fantastic lunch spot.

I love that I can walk to this restaurant from home. I love their salads and sandwiches. The flatbread is baked on site so it is always fresh. Salads come with a wedge of bread. They offer large salads for take out which are great for home parties.

Don't expect anything fancy but the food is good. Love the chipotle mayo on some of the sandwiches and their balsamic vinaigrette, their house dressing is excellent.

The food is wonderful and it's refreshing having a salad as a side instead of fries. The people who work here are so friendly and helpful, always offering their favorites to help in deciding. Also, the owners are really nice, down to earth people. I will for sure keep coming back.

This place has delicious food - soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts. Indoor or outdoor dining. You can seldom walk right up to the counter to order. I usually end up as #3 or 4 in line. Since I am eating Gluten-free now it is harder to find something on the menu that I can eat but I can usually special... More

I frequent this sandwich, soup and salad restaurant. It's very casual with not much space inside, but on a nice Ventura day I love to eat on the patio (if there's room). Arrive early because there's usually a line, but it goes quickly. The staff is friendly but busy. The sandwiches are served on a very unique type of flat... More

My group was meeting at another venue in Ventura and offered the menu from this place to select from. WHAT A GREAT SURPRISE! Our meals were picked-up and brought to us at our conference site. The Kale & Quinoa salad was exceptional. All the ingredients were prepared appropriately, especially the kale which made the presentation very appealing. Nicely done! I... More

The pastrami is awesome. Urban throws in some salad to make it healthy. Great portions and service at a good price. Always good food! We're there once a week.
