I think the vibe is cool, but this is definitely not a vegetarian restaurant or a healthy restaurant. They may seem like one, but they're not.

Had our 2.5 year old who is great at restaurants, tried to order from the Kid's Menu a Turkey Panini, but asked them not to "panini" it because our daughter isn't really into melted cheese. They said they "couldn't" do it, and suggested

the way it says "Organic" prominently all over the restaurant caused many patrons to think the food is organic when in reality ONLY THE COFFEE IS ORGANIC.

The chicken, tuna, salads etc are NOT ORGANIC! And therefore it is not an "organic

The taste is not too bad, but the wait is terrible. Suchhhh a long line and its not worth the wait. The smoothie i purchased was like 10$ almost and the sandwhich, which was supposed to be hot, was cold. The coffee is very pretty there

Working your why through the patio at Urth Caf is similar to walking into the cafeteria on your first day of high school; everyone is staring at you and judging, or, at least, it feels as if they are. Urth is definitely the go-to place

Ok, so what does that mean. The food is good and great for a quick bite on the go when shopping in 90210. Take note, not all of their food is "organically" made. They can't make everything they sell here. I recommend the sqaush soup and turkey sandwich. Their coffees and teas are legit. Beautiful people all around and you might spot a movie star under the ball cap and denim. You can bring little Tinkerbell and Bandit, but leave them outside. Everyone's friendly, even the Hollywood agent, who might give up his extra chair for your table. Tip the servants if you can and don't leave a mess when your done.

The most exciting part of Urth Caffe is the that we went on a sunday and didn't have to pay for metered parking. The food was ok, we asked for water from three different people...we could have seriously died of thirst. Nothing special

If you're okay with infinite circling to look for parking, and prices that are a bit steep for what you get, this spot has good food. I especially recommend the breakfast bread pudding.

If I could go to this place and just get some dang coffee and a snack, life would be great. But that's not going to happen because not only is this a place where "young Hollywood" likes to be seen, but the food and coffee is actually good-no, great. I have tried to go at different times (to coordinate with my Beverly Center or Melrose Ave. trips), but it's always freakin' busy. I would eat there more if my mocha wasn't cold by the time I got back to my car.

PROS: Food and coffee is great
CONS: So many people here to stargaze, you can't get anything for a half an hour

I wish this place was less busy...it's impossible to get a seat at night and it gets busy during the day, very good people-watching. The coffee is great and they feature a lot of great, healthy (mostly vegetarian) soups and salads. Their pastries are also quite good. Parking is impossible in the area though.
