Urth Caffe | Breakfast in Southern California

You can never go wrong with a Southern Californian breakfast.  A nice big cup of coffee, fresh eggs, fruit, and bread make for the perfect comfort meal.  Urth Caffe is a great place to indulge for breakfast.  The cafe offers a great variety of coffee, entrees, and baked goods.  Everything is fresh, made-to-order, and simple.

The spinach and feta omelette is my favorite.  It is a three egg omelette with sautéed spinach, red onions, and imported feta cheese.  The dish is served with a spring salad and a side of bread.  A simple combination which compliments the omelettes very well.  When it comes to choosing a beverage, the coffee and tea options can be overwhelming.  There are hot, cold, and blended, caffeinated and non-caffeinated varieties.  Out of all of the delicious coffee options, my favorite has to be the honey vanilla latte.  The combination of vanilla and honey makes this choice just the right amount of sweet – no sugar needed.

Currently, the Urth Caffe has four locations throughout Southern California.  Each cafe’s architecture is unique.  I love the Pasadena locale for it’s laid-back ambiance and Spanish colonial design.  All locations offer outdoor seating, which is a must in Southern California, and great for people watching.
