Too expensive and very forgettable. Lots of selection and seating indoors and out. Nothing to write home about.

It would be a real treat to visit Urth Caffe for excellent food if the atmosphere were more amenable to a pleasant rest or visit with your company. However, the hurried, loud and crowded customers waiting in line to get food and then rushing for whatever table will be available next is distracting. Our food was delivered and we were... More

I did a search for the best restaurants in Santa Monica, and found Urth Caffe listed as the 5th best. So we decided to try it. Dinner time was a bit busy, but not terribly so. We waited about 5 minutes in line to order our food. The salads that my daughter and I had were delicious. Their candied pecans... More

Urth cafe is the most pleasant place to cafe or breakfast. Can't have enough of their ice cold Spanish Latte. The breakfast menu is very extensive. The drawback is they get a bit chaotic with seatings when it gets crowded. They need to organize the seating better.

There are healthier places to eat. But this one has brand name recognition as a trendy/ healthy place in LA... it's almost a chain now, with several locations. Food is good- but not amazing. portions are good as well... it's expensive though. Lunch for one is around $20. But it's reliably decent, and the outdoors patio is nice.

One of my favorite coffee and lunch spots. Stand in line to order then be seated at a table. The best Urth cafe with the best location. One street over from Ocean Park. Parking is not abundant but they offer valet service.

The Urth Cafe on Main Street Santa Monica is the epicenter of a good lifestyle experience on the West Coast. The plates are like the Garden of Eden arranged by a Feng Shui God; the view is through lush flower bushes onto the street with electric cars and bikes zipping by. The whole neighborhood is worth exploring all the way... More

I go once a week. The menu is very rich, staff is always nice. Once, I forgot my whole wallet over the counter, it was with cards, money and documents. 3 days later, I called and my wallet was there, perfectly fine.

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.
