Urth Caffe all day no matter what location. This is the original spot and is close to the Santa Monica beach so that's a major perk if you need to walk off your food with nice scenery. Favorites here are always the organic green tea boba, the chicken pesto sandwhich, and my favorite is the burrata pizza (I'm blanking out on the actual name) but the presentation is amazing and is oh so delicious.

There's always something to hear to satisfy everyone and the food is fresh and healthy.

California,

Urth is on of my favorite coffee spots - the location in Santa Monica in particular. Friendly and helpful staff, a lovely fountain in the back patio.

The original wonder, lines used to stretch around and you don't get to sit down more than 20mins at the table. Now it's similar but less crowded and a good spot to get some coffee on. You can get valet or park at a meter around the corner for on the go or dine in and eat. Make sure to come when it's not super crowded.

I absolutely love Urth Caffe! The quality of the food is fresh, healthy, and tasty.
I went here with my little sister on our day off for lunch. I had the New Yorker sandwich which is a classic reuben sandwich with pastrami, braised cabbage, imported swiss cheese on thick slices of marble bread served with mixed greens salad and pickle. Lil' sis had the grilled cilantro chicken pesto sandwich. We also ordered the spanish latte and organic green tea. Food was amazing and the lattes are unforgettable especially when it came with cute bear designs.
Overall, fun place to grab lunch and people watch. One more thing, they get quite busy at all hours it seem.

Is this THE destination for coffee drinks? Their delightful honey latte, or any of the other concocted variations of espresso they roast themselves? YES!

Is the food worth the hour long wait in line + seated at the table? Debatable.

Their espresso roast is wonderfully flavorful, rich, vibrant, and pleasant to the olfactory palette. Is it a foodie destination, though? The problem lays in the fact that they do their coffee so impeccably well, that the food simply hasn't been able to measure up.

Take a student, for example. Typically puts out A work, so when you read something not as great, you give them a B. But the D student who puts out a good paper? He's going to get a B too, but they're completely different papers - they're just weighted differently due to expectation. Of course, this is what I argued to one of my professors and how it wasn't fair...hint hint guess which one of those two I was...

The point is that you'll find me in the short line. Waiting for a drink and a pastry to-go, because I spent too much time in Reno not waiting for food that the idea of waiting in line tends to be too unbearable these days. I'm too hungry for you, queue!

Very busy and crowded place, but I guess there is a good reason for that. Urth has GREAT coffee and a huge variety of tea. Most of the ingredients in the food and drinks are organic and it's not very pricy.

My favorite cafe on the west side. Amazing espresso drinks served in big cups, mind blowing pastries and sweets, great sandwiches. The egg sandwich for breakfast, on fresh baked bread with avocado and cheese is my favorite - I get it every time I go to L.A. The bread pudding is also mind-blowingly good. The seating is all open air, so if you are there on a chilly morning, bring a jacket so you are not cold.

A real hot spot for lunch nearby. Very artsy...in an area that is design oriented.

Saw this listed on the Gogobot Travelers' Favorite Awards & had to check it out. The food, the coffee, the preparation, the care & EVERYTHING else truly made this one of the most memorable breakfast experiences. The Spanish latte, pictured above, really does take you back to the kind of java beverages sold in Madrid cafes (even thought the menu made a point of mentioning Barcelona) & the food, from the fresh baked bread to the perfectly cooked eggs to the sticky bun - I can't wait to return.

great food and fantastic customer service! This place is really popular so it will be a challenge to find a seat; however the cashiers and greeters are really helpful in finding seats for you. definitely try the tostada....definitely a favorite! the only drawback is that it is overpriced.
