Finally found a healthy food place in Santa Monica with fresh organic salads. The food was delicious, fresh and a nice change from the processed food of most cafes in LA. Great atmosphere and quick service. Mostly visited by locals so I had a 'what are tourists doing here?' moment by a patron but that was reassuring to my tourist... More

I have eaten at Urth Caffe in Beverly Hills, but this was my 1st visit to the one in Santa Monica. The food is as fresh and yummy as I had recalled. The caffe is very attractive with a lot of outside seating. I always love the berry bowl with yogurt (be sure to request a tiny bowl of the... More

On our way to the beach we stumbled apon this gem. Very good breakfast and we are packed. Now we can stay at the beach all day and bring along just a bottle of water.

Excellent cafe and a vast menu of American eats plus a variety of organic drinks. Long wait time due to its popularity, but the wait is worth it! It's a great place to sit in the morning.

Got the food delivered, which was relatively prompt. Should have scrolled down further on TripAdvisor. I got the Pot Roast sandwich, which was okay tasting but I had one in New Orleans that was 1/2 the price and 20 x bigger and better. The Chicken Tamales my fiancé had were bland, very bland in fact. The side salads were a... More

Outdoor and indoor seating, friendly and knowledgable staff, but, most importantly, very good baked item and serious strong coffee make this place a must for breakfasters.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
