The location is very nice but the floor plan could be confusing. The food is not even close to good but average. The service is neither bad or good but more indifferent.

Everything is delicious at Urth Cafe, but the granola is to die for. I like it so much that I buy additional packets (in store and sold online) to have for breakfast daily. The atmosphere on Main St. is hip and outdoorsy, and the line to order moves quickly due to the efficient staff. Valet parking makes the experience easy... More

Stopped by on the way to Venice Beach. Had a great breakfast. The waffles with fruit tasted good. Popular. So it gets busy. Plan to wait for a table.

I usually avoid Urth Caffe at lunch because they are usually so crowded. But 4 of us wandered in for dinner Saturday night and got right in. I don't have a parking problem because I live walking distance. The food was as good as ever. Shared salmon salad and lentil soup. Friend had turkey burger and hummus plate. Were excellent... More

Such a good breakfast choice , we decided to try it and we are happy we did so while in Santa Monica . The menu had a variety of options and their coffee was good but what we really liked the most was their amazingly delicious deserts 😍! Would recommend it to a friend definitely.

I've been to 2 diff rent Urth Caffe's and they were both very crowded. But the food here is awesome so maybe that's one of the reasons. It's quite expensive but they have organic food, big portions and they have a lot of yummy and healthy alternatives. Everything went smooth, ordering, getting my number for my order and then get...

A trip to Santa Monica, Beverly Hills or Laguna Beach is not complete without a visit to Urth Cafe. Our family thinks their coffees are among the best in the world, and the baristas decorate the creamy lattes with art to please any customer. I find the honey vanilla latte irresistible, as well as the croissants and apple tarte tatin.... More

Introduced by a local friend, we visited Urth Caffé for lunch. We were impressed by their handmade creamy lattes. My kale salad was was subtly dressed, the flavor of the organic ingredients presented their authentic aromas. I also tried my friend's sprout sandwich. The fresh flavor of the sprouts attacked my senses, crispily salivating. This a must-go near Beverly Hills.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
