No matter how long the line is, how trendy and hipster and perfectly arrangedb are ALL the girls sipping tea next to you, this is an amazing place for every craving you might have.
Desserts are the best : just perfect!
My favorite is still the tarte tatin, that they can heaten up to the right temperature, so that it fully delivers its buttery sweetness, which is nowhere else to be found.
The French can just be jealous of such result...

Urth Caffee was one of our great eats while visiting the US.
The store has a lot of character, tasty food, friendly staff, and the best terrace to enjoy the Californian weather; what else can you ask for?

Looks like it's a hotspot, most reviews on TA and Yelp are good/excellent, and there was quite a line the day we went for lunch. Despite the crowd, the servers were very efficient taking up orders, preparing our drinks, cash us out and serve the food. Don't expect anything too fancy like in a gastronomic restaurant; Urth Caffee is a very casual, laid back coffee shop, that has an extensive choice of food and drinks. Ideal for lunch/brunch, and suitable for couples or a bunch of friends (not too many or else it'll be hard to get seats).

I don't usually fancy organic food but apparently that is what they serve, and I had no idea organic could taste this good! We had the Parma ham pizza and the chicken curry sandwich; both good size, like pretty much everywhere in the US, and tasty. The prices are quite affordable, especially for the location, the environment and the food.
Too bad we didn't get to stop by a second time because we would have loved to try other stuff. Oh well, that gives us another reason to return to California!

Always popular (like the one in Beverly Hills & other in West Hollywood...expect a line at the counter) because of the variety of healthy great tasting while a bit pricey food in a charming and inviting environment. My fav. is the chicken curry sandwich in the summer & the veggie chili in the winter.

Had the poached eggs on fresh greens with corn and cherry tomatoes side of toast.
I didn't thinksomething this Healthy and simple could taste this good! Maybe it was the BBQ corn pieces Inside the green? Or the combination of the yolk on the greens?
The eggs were cooked perfectly: which is rare for me to say - I AM PICKY.
A must try
