Is Urth Cuisine Healthy?
Yes, Urth Caffé Cuisine is very healthy! We are passionate about serving a health-conscious menu focused on the finest organic, sustainable, and local ingredients, many of which are delivered straight from local family farms each day. We offer fresh, tasty, vibrant choices that fit the spectrum of healthy diets from many plant-based vegan and gluten-free dishes to pure decadence of the creamiest, imported French butter, organic and hormone-free dairy, grass-fed beef, and the best old-school, truly free-range eggs.
In fact, several menu items are available with plant-based ingredient substitutions upon request. All heirloom, organic coffees and fine teas can be prepared with soy, almond, coconut, oat, or organic milk (for additional charge). Gluten-free bread is available to use on all of our sandwiches. Many entrees, Urth's Huevos Rancheros and Pizza Huevos Rancheros for example, can be prepared with plant-based eggs, plant-based cheeses to make the dish completely vegan.

So many menu choices started out vegan, such as our Avocado Toast, Urth Acai Bowl, Pizza Primavera, Paradise Salad (pictured above story), Vegan Patty Melt Panini, Vegan Panini Portabella and so many more.
Urth Caffé juices and smoothies start with the freshest fruits and vegetables to offer not only great flavors, but also important nutrients guests can rely upon. Juice at Urth is always squeezed to order fresh and never bottled. In the spring, our orange juice is squeezed to order with remarkably sweet, heirloom, organic oranges grown on a Riverside County family-owned orchard. Urth's Rumi Latté, Rising Sun Matcha Latté and Green Rose Latté (left to right below) were developed to offer important antioxidants and vitamins along with great flavor.
Urth Caffé is proud of its many relationships with local, organic farms with whom Chef Davide Giova has had the opportunity to visit and collaborate. with. One of our notable long-time relationships is with Kenter Canyon Family Farms. Kenter Canyon provides Urth Caffé with our excellent, certified organically grown lettuces, organic mixed greens, and fresh herbs seven days a week. Kenter Canyon partnered with Chef Davide to customize a proprietary organic baby spring lettuce mix enjoyed exclusively by loyal Urth Caffé patrons. In fact, a salad at Urth Caffé is so fresh, it may have been harvested just the day before.

Urth receives very special eggs direct from a local family farm every day. These are the very best eggs in Southern California and are delivered to Urth Caffé without any warehouse storage or middlemen. The farm is completely old school with truly free-range, vegetarian fed, happy chickens that produce the best tasting eggs with bright, vibrant, deep, orange-colored yolks. Our farm-fresh eggs are used for many excellent egg dishes at Urth Caffé and for our artisan bakery of pastries and desserts.
