PRIVATE ROOM AVAILABLE?No
Cheerful organic café with expansive sun-drenched terrace. Health conscious beautiful people congregate at the outside tables, wiling away a morning with one of Urth’s signature organic drinks and low-calorie breakfasts and lunches (sandwiches, salads). Peak times bring massive lines at the counter and tussles over tables.
The crowd is largely of the “hip ladies who organic brunch” variety, mixed with a few ciggie-puffing models trying to look the part.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Jeans and a t-shirt will do. Some of the clientele look like they rolled in straight from bed or aerobics class.

A friend – for a snack and a gab session
WHY WE LIKE IT
Although Urth is all about healthy, what we really love are their luscious, not-so-healthy organic desserts. Perfect accompaniment to one of their lovely teas or coffees.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Is a latte and a snack really worth a 30-minute wait in line?
GOOD TO KNOW
It gets mega crowded, so either come early or be prepared to wait for one of the umbrella-ed tables on the patio.The Melrose location is good for celeb sightings, while the Santa Monica location is the best for long, leisurely breakfasts.
