Urth Caffé Officially Opens Sept 2, 2013 in Pasadena

Urth Caffé Officially Opens Sept 2, 2013  in Pasadena
If you attended the Grand Opening Celebration of Urth Caffe in Pasadena this past Sunday, then you are eager for the much anticipated opening of Urth Caffe on Sept 2, 2013.

The Pasadena location has been in the works for about five years, and some of the elements of the new building have been in the works longer. Notable features like local tile and local ironwork make this especially attractive features that visitors and customers will enjoy.

We understand that the patio will be dog friendly, but that could change. It could be limited to some tables near the sidewalk perhaps or additional tables that will be added.

With a capacity of about 150 guests, we anticipate that this location will be pretty busy and that lines will be a common site.  So get there early on weekends and enjoy the wonderful select of coffee and tea.

Urth Caffe prices are on the high end but the quality is excellent for all the heirloom coffees and teas that are offered.

Some pictures from the grand opening celebration on August 18, 2013.
