“One of our frequent lunch spots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We often stop here for lunch on Sundays - just a pleasant, casual spot to have a quick bite that's above the average fast food. Very pleasant staff, good quality food and nice options. We usually sit outside and people watch, and all in we keep coming back.

“Incredible sandwiches and soups at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

This small restaurant has a great selection of comfort food soups and flat bread sandwiches for every taste. Plenty of food and reasonable prices, cafeteria style service in a pleasant and convenient downtown SLO location close to shopping and entertainment. Grab a bite after the movies or a day in town.

Urbane Cafe is new to SLO. This is a great place for a quick lunch when shopping downtown. I love their salads.

“Ideal lunch place in Downtown San Luis Obispo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

Tasty sandwiches and salads. Prices are moderate: $5 to $7.75. Urbane bakes its own bread daily. The San Luis Obispo cafe has covered outdoor dining in a corner setting (but only 7 or 8 outside tables with the rest inside).

My favorite sandwich is the Club Sandwich. It has oven roasted turkey, avocado, tomato, applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce plus a salad. $7.45.

Urbane has 17 different types of sandwiches. Service is quick. No wait service at the table. You order and pick up after buzzed.

Good value, good people watching if you have an outside table - and have a nice day too.
