“Best coffee shop in LA”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Their honey lattes are to die for. Love their soup and salads. Everything is pretty much amazing! The Hollywood location is a great place for celeb sitings as well.

“Great place for breakfast!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Really unique place with great food! My wife and I had the apple bread pudding and the banana bread pudding for breakfast one morning. It is billed as the best breakfast in LA. If it wasn't it was close. Very good. Portions are large, so you may want to share. The next day we shared the banana walnut oatmeal and it was also really good. There are so many good choices on the menu that it is hard to pick. The orange juice is fresh squeezed and the coffee is strong and flavorful.

“Excellent and fresh -- often crowded ... great for "to go"”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

This is one of our regular places - we like the grilled chicken with pesto (they can provide cheese free pesto for a dairy free choice). Also the chicken curry salad is great in a sandwich or salad - try the nut bread (this bread is addicting). There are several vegan choices (including Quesadilla with soy cheese). The Moroccan MInt boba drink (blended) is our group's favorite. They also have lots of coffee and pastry choices for dessert. There is often a wait for a table so we usually just phone our order in and can directly pick up the order at the bar. The outside tables in the back patio are very nice if one is available. Parking can be tough but they have a valet for a fee but it can save you a lot of time! The valet willl let you park in fronr for a pick up order and I think the charge is one dollar.

“Tasty food, but not all good values.”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

I told the counter staff member that I wanted the Curry Chicken Salad Sandwich but without bread. Instead of ordering the sandwich, she suggested I have it on greens. I received a full plate of green salad, with a miniscule amount of the curried chicken salad. My waiter sent over the manager, who wanted to charge me for more (already over $16 for the salad with an iced tea). He suggested I fill-up on the bread they put on the side, which I couldn't eat! Eventually, he decided to give me more without a charge, but with a "warning" about next time! Although I was abstaining, the baked desserts looked delicious, but many of the prices were outrageous for a small portion.

“Down to Urth”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Urth Caffe in Santa Monica is a great place to spend a Saturday or Sunday morning, enjoying the weather and atmosphere of Santa Monica. The breakfast offerings are varied and plentiful. Even the long weekend lines move along at a sufficient pace and the delivery to the table following the order is quite prompt. A good choice.
