Good selection. Clean and pleasant. Salads and sandwiches. I had the Cafe Salad. Abundant chicken and pecans, not much pears or goat cheese. Very fresh mixed lettuce. Balsamic vinaigrette a bit vinegary....not sweet. My SIL ordered the Tuscan sandwich which came with a fresh salad. A bit difficult to eat, she said, because it kept slipping and sliding. She did...

I ordered 42 lunch boxes from Urbane Cafe for my birthday party weekend. They were delivered on time and were absolutely delicious. My guests chose from 5 different sandwiches baked on homemade bread. Each sandwich came with a salad, kettle chips and a yummy cookie. Everyone was full, everyone was happy and the sandwiches were packed with meat, veggies, excellent... More

A great healthy alternative to fast food. A bit more expensive, but that means $40/versus $25 for a family of five, and the wife and kids have a half-sandwich for lunch the next day. My favorite is the Santa Maria Chicken salad. The best part is using their app-- order on the app, customize the order. Tell them what time... More

We have a word for this sort of place in the UK - it's a bit poncey. The billing as healthy and fresh - its all a bit trying-too-hard-to-be cool. The atmosphere is not different to the ubiquitous burger bars that festoon the US. The food (mine's a club sandwich) was OK but I found it all a bit dry.... More

Jumped across the street while training the hospital staff. Had the Urbane Cobb salad and ENJOYED IT! Everything was fresh. Loved the dressing. I had a side of Cilantro ranch dressing- AMAZING! Loved the fresh bread as well. Recommend you pop in! Lots of healthy options. They serve all natural, hormone free and in house prepared items!

When the Urbane Cafe opened several years ago, their salads and sandwiches were different and unique.....and delicious! I don't know what happened, but we both were very disappointed with the lunch that was served. My husband ordered the Kale and quinoa salad with roasted chicken......he said it was very bland. I ordered the salad of the day with roasted chicken......again,... More

This was a great little find. It is similar to Panera but has a lot of interesting choices for and sandwiches. I had the Californian thar had avocado, sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms, artichoke hearts and aoli. It was delicious and they bake the bread in a pizza oven on site. We all had great sandwiches and it was not too... More

I've never heard of this place but was staying at the hotel close by and driving around looking for a "to-go" dinner. Saw a lot of people going in and out so figured I'd try it. I had a California Chicken sandwich with avocado. It's made on a flatbread and came with a side salad. The chicken was warm, tender... More

So, it's not Paneras, it's better! The choices of sandwiches and soups were imaginative with a Cal-Mex twist, using ingredients more commonly found in Mexican restaurants, but in an upscale, boutique, chain restaurant style. Made to order, fresh and delicious. Maybe a hair more expensive than a Paneras, but worth it!

I think the sandwiches here are a great change for those used to Panera Bread... I recommend the so-cal sandwich... very good! I'll be coming back!
