We shared the pastrami grilled sandwich and Greek salad. Both were delicious but we were glad we shared the sandwich as it was very rich. Food was spot on, my only criticism was everyone around us who arrived later ate much before us..maybe this is because they are locals. Either way we weren't in a rush and we would certainly...

My wife had been to the Urth Caffe in Hollywood, but since we were in Down Town we tried this location. We regret nothing. We both had the egg white and spinach panini and added sausage for extra protein. It was extra tasty. Also had an organic green tea boba which was delicious and a Spanish Latte that was not... More

The food here is fantastic lets start with that. I had one of the pizza's and it was delicious. Unfortunately you have to queue up twice. The first time to order then the second time for a table.

All the food is excellent and the coffee is loaded with caffeine if you get the strong. Great outdoor seating and close to some artsy shops.

After a number of hours doing photo shots around LA we got hungry and went to Urth for a bite to eat, I had the turkey burger which was delicious along with a coffee which was just as good. Decided to get a take away latte again top notch. Staff were pleasant so I'd highly recommend

Overall it was very good. Food quality was excellent. Outside seating is abundant which is why I picked the place. There was a long line to order food that we had to wait in. It then took a long time for the food to come. Huge cups of coffee were a plus. Portion was enough for two!

Nice Cafe, good choice of breakfasts, used very fresh produce, well presented. Was a very busy place. Service was ok. Nice help yourself cucumber water. Really large portions. I would return if in the area.

The location is completely off the beaten track for me but a nice surprise in a very industrial looking part of town. Very good coffee and excellent chai tea. The teramisu, one of three flavors, is definitely worth a try.

This place serves the best coffee I have ever had, it's vegan friendly and the food is super amazing! If you don't mind standing in a long queue to get seated or served, don't miss it!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
