The food, the vibe, the service, and the neighborhood all combine to make Urth Caffe a very special place. The food is all outstanding, and the menu provides a wide range of both breakfast and lunch options. They also have outstanding coffees and bakery items. The bread pudding with banana sauce is an especially delicious treat. It is a quaint... More

Delicious menu and a gorgeously impressive pastry case. I stared at the chocolate and pistachio croissants and giant cookies, but ultimately decided I needed something a bit heartier. The granola also looked delicious! I opted for the Salmon Toast with poached eggs, which was delicious. I also got an iced coffee, which was pretty bitter. I would definitely check this... More

The vibe of the neighborhood of this restaurant is mellow, a nice break from the chaos of the San Fernando Valley. The food is prepared fresh and delicious. It's best to eat outside here whenever possible for the best overall experience.

Waited in line for over 30 min to get a table. Food was good. Had the Belgian waffles and specialty coffee. Nice seating area outside. Would come again on a less busy day!

Once inside, gave the impression of a more upscale Starbucks.In good American spirit choices on menus are endless in terms of flavors and possibilities. Which was later to prove to demonstrate complicate the handling of the order. For some reason, the coffee first, that is, when the food order, which this time was regarded as a continental-breakfast came to the... More

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.
