Over-rated, Expensive and expect No-Service!.
The service is not there at this venue. You have to walk up, order, pay and wait for a waiter to drop off the food at your table, that is if you found a table that was clean to begin with. There is no other service what so ever at any locations of this chain. If you want a glass of water you need to fetch it yourself. The food is ok but very expensive for a venue with no service. The staff think that they are descendants of Royalty, expect them to be snobby and less than cordial. sometimes flat out rude and argumentative.
Attention All Coffee & Dessert Lovers <3.
I've been to the Melrose & Beverly Urth, and always prefer coming to the Beverly location. The people that come here tend to live or work in the area, whereas the Melrose Urth has blown up to unspeakable paparazzi proportions thanks to Entourage!
Spanish Latte - Ordered with non-fat milk, strong espresso & easy on the condensed milk. This allows me to be able to eat dessert without having too sweet a drink to pair it with.
Egg Sandwich - Only served at breakfast! Who knew avocado & sliced cheese on top of an egg would be so delightful.
Fruit Plate - Thinly sliced with a dollop of creamy yogurt in the center for dipping. They put seasonal as well as specialty fruit on top (e.g. Dragonfruit, red oranges, plums & yellow kiwi) along with your standard melon & berries.
Desserts - Unsure of what to get & don't want to spend $7? Look on the far right and/or bottom section for "Bake Sale" items. These are usually only $2-$4 and are only a few hours old. Usually they are trying to get rid of the breakfast items by 3 PM. Great deal!
Try: Pumpkin Pie, Oreo Cheesecake, Blueberry Cheesecake, Fruit Tart, Lemon Poppy seed Pound Cake, Blackout Chocolate Pound Cake, or Pecan Pie.
Best Pumpkin Pie on Earth..
Read other reviews for details on drinks salads sandwiches etc. All I want to say: BEST PUMPKIN PIE. I think they sell the whole one (it's huge) for $40. Or by the slice if you please.
best urth location i've tried.
in my opinion, this is the best urth location i've been too. I have yet to visit the santa monica one and the new one downtown. I didn't mind the melrose one, but after my trip the beverly location, i was hooked! The service and the people are great. its a great spot to go to and have a dessert and coffee, but their food is great as well! if you like tea, they will have a great recommendation for you if you want to try something new!
Good location and GREAT pumpkin pie.
Located right in the center of the popular Beverly Blvd restaurant strip between Wilshire and Olympic boulevards, this cafe serves up DELICIOUS, fresh and organic sandwiches and salads. Their plentiful and rich dessert options are just as satisfying, particularly their graham-cracker crust pumpkin pie. And their Spanish latte with honey is one of my favorite coffee drinks ever! Parking is cheap; free until 6pm at the garage nearly across the street and only $2-ish afterwards. The negatives: It can often be hard to get a seat, and the homeless sometimes approach you to ask for money if you?re sitting outside closer to the street. However, equally is likely at this location is that you?ll spot a celebrity.
Excellent coffee and outdoor seating.
Great place to sip aromatic coffee whie enjoying the outdoor patio or cozy fireplace inside. It's in easy walking distance from where I live and some cute shops so I've worked my way through a considerable portion of the menu - oatmeal , omelettes, and paninis are nothing to write home about; salads, soups, and sweets (particularly their hazelnut chocolate croissant and decadent, warm bread pudding with baked apple or banana on top) are worthwhile. Service is generally friendly and helpful, though there is sometimes a gentleman controlling the flow of the tables outside who can be a bit abbrasive.
Good place to hang out with tasty, healthy food.
The chicken curry salad/ sandwich is one of my favorite items on the menu. It's a cold cut sandwich and the chicken curry is very strong with curry spices (BUT not hot at all). Most items on the menu are quite light and healthy. If you are looking for more fulfilling food, they have excellent panini melts too.
As for their desserts, I would recommend the tiramisu and the napoleon cake.
best coffee in LA, great outdoor seating, friendly staff.
This place made my move to LA worthwhile. In an otherwise urban city teeming with Hollywood superstars and dog leash-clad actors, the ambiance, atmosphere and--most importantly--FOOD at this restaurant is a welcomed respite from the "rest." (My friend saw Meg Ryan there last week so, its not "star-free," but we're in LA people . . . we don't even expect "star-free!").
I highly recommend the Spanish Latte. Throw back one of these and, coffee will never be the same to you, I swear.
