The menu at Urth Santa Monica features local, seasonal, and organic fare. Place your order at the counter, then select from one of many tables both inside and out. Breakfast is a popular time because of the great selection of delicious pastries, but lunch brings on a large variety of sandwiches--including The “New Yorker” Sandwich, which is a tasty classic Reuben with Russian dressing on marble bread. Pizzas and salads and plenty more options round it out. Among the desserts are an acclaimed pecan sticky bun and personal-size pecan pie, but don’t miss the delicious and light berries-and-cream cake. Acclaimed drinks include the Spanish latte and Japanese green tea latte, but I favor the smoothies.

All this and it’s popular with celebs, too! Though I saw somebody here (I’m just not sure who!), at the Beverly Hills branch I once saw Reese Witherspoon with her halo of blonde, blonde hair setting up shop with her young children. Keep your eyes peeled.
Shops and more restaurants are sprinkled along Main Street, and the Community Garden can be seen across the street at #2224.
