Sweet Breakfast/Brunch Spot

Nice spot with lots of plants and a nice ambiance. Only a few vegan options and they’re not marked on the menu, but they have a pesto and artichoke sandwich that’s great, a couple other sandwiches and also açai bowls and oatmeal. Probs more too but that’s what I remember!

Nice atmosphere

Had a great salad and the vegetarian had a gluten free caprese. Both were good and really big portions. I forgot to ask for the dreasing on the side but other than that everything was great. Orders came fast.

I’ve been coming to this location for over 10 years and it’s always changing but once things stays the same everything is 100% organic and fair trade!

Some of my favorites...
- Portobello mushroom Panini with no cheese!
vegan pesto
- Hot chocolate with almond milk
- chai latte with almond milk and a shot of espresso
- vegan oatmeal cookie
- vegan chocolate cake

Good location

Lots of outdoor seating. Ordered the “omelette” with tofu instead of egg and sans cheese-not bad. Coffe is delicious!

Good place to take non-vegans

Although Urth does have some good vegan options, but the majority of the menu is catered to non-vegans. I'm not sure if they are famous for it, but about 80% of the people I saw in the restaurant were ordering the mac&cheese.

Pros: Good location, Nice terrace, large menu

Great pesto sandwich

Not very many vegan options but the grilled vegetable pesto sandwich is delicious! The vegan pesto is super tasty.

Urth Caffe on Melrose

This Urth Caffe location is just next door to the famous Bodhi Tree book and spiritual gifts and things shop (soon to close, unfortunately). I've been here just once in all the times I've come to the area, here's my review for happycow.

Basically same menu as the other Urth Caffes in the greater LA area. Plenty ovo-lacto vegetarian meal options with a just couple vegan ones. It's a trendy place, and there is a small area in front of the restaurant for seating. I like the organic coffee drinks. The desserts are look attractive but are too sweet for my taste -- usually vegan cookies on offer and sometimes a vegan chocolate cake (very sweet). During the holidays, you can order a vegan pumpkin pie.

It's a very popular place that's always packed.

PS. You can get an incredible cappucino at Urth Caffe (with soymilk is extra $0.50, ask for "dolce" style).

Pros: best dolce cappucino

Urth Caffe

My bf really likes Urth and stops here during his frequent business trips while in town. During our latest visit he decided to drag me here since we were near by. I honestly don't care too much for Urth because they lack vegan options. Needless to say, I just had heirloom potatoes, they were OK. In the past I've had smoothies at other locations which I remember were good. I wouldn't go here on my own, but if I had to I'd make it work (like this last time).

Place to be seen

I wish they offered more vegan items, but sitting outside with a nice soy or almond milk ice blended tea on a hot day and watching for celebs on Melrose is a popular thing to do!

Pros: soy and almond milk

Cons: few vegan items
