It's a great hang out. The furniture is both horrible and comfortable at the same time. it's the kind of place where you can find a spot to sit and talk while with a friend, but because the chair is so garage sale you don't feel bad about

I really enjoy the look and feel of this place, and the coffee is excellent, much better than Starbucks. I can't comment on the frappes and capps because I never drink those anyway. To the person who complained about the junky look--I'd rather have a worn-out old couch I can sink into than the hard chairs and tiny tables that Starbucks increasingly favors. And just having the art there at all is a plus even if it isn't always very good. It's better than blank walls a la Starbucks. My only complaint is that the wi-fi is so slow and intermittent as to be virtually unusable. I wish they'd fix that, because otherwise I love the place. But I usually need to work on my computer during the day, and this is keeping me away.

I went here to meet a friend and hear some live music. The coffee/tea options are decent prices and the ambiance here is very hippie chic. I found it kinda amusing that they serve their coffee/tea in small beer mugs. The music was good, very indie. There is also a back room were you can grab a table with friends to play cards or a board games.

Unurban is a small cozy neighborhood cafe. It is a great place to get a cup of coffee and hang out with friends. You have to find street parking which can be difficult sometime.

This place sucked completely. I'll start from the outside look of it which looked like an old abandoned place that was remodeled on the inside with bright purple, green, and orange paint. Really amateur elementary type art, followed by the people that hang out in it who know nothing about art sipping on their latte and blabbering their mouth off spewing bulls*it about not knowing anything about art.
The staff wasn't very friendly and welcoming at all. I think the lady with the shaved head is the owner, not totally sure on that. But most of the night she was just sitting on the couch talking to someone else sitting next to her. At midnight when it was time to close she was being rude to customers who were in her way raising her voice and tapping whoever was in her way to move and proceeded to clean the tables.
There were several bands booked for the night, and the last one on the line up for the night was all set up, and doing a little sound check before beginning to play when suddenly the lights were turned off and everyone was asked to leave. Very disrespectful thing to do to their customers, the band, and their fans. I drove all the way from the Long Beach area to see my friends play a show which turns out I didn't get to see. I'm sure I wasn't the only one that came from 25-30 miles away, so it would have been nice to at least get some free food, free drink, or $5-10 for gas, or even see the band for 10 minutes since they also had to drive a pretty big distance. And they didn't even get some kind of reimbursement.
This place oughta be shut down.

If I could give it less stars than 1, I would. The place looks like it would be relaxed and easy to fit in. Until you walk to the counter. I asked the guy there if the drinks on one board had milk...as most smoothies are. He either didn't know the answer or just didn't want to do his job.
Went to sit down after ordering and set up my computer etc to get some work done. After I've gotten settled and am working, a guy flags me down telling me I've got to move because he's setting up to show some films...all the while, he was standing in the room with me while I set everything up. He blames it on me saying that he made an announcement, which I clearly was not present for. He continued to tell me that life was hard, and if it sometimes life is inconvenient. And continued to talk about it. What a b*stard.
No parking either, this place is a phony hippie joint. Skip it. Go to Coffee Connection in Mar Vista, free parking, free internet, free power, nice people, quiet, and everyone leaves you alone.

Pros: If you want a place that looks welcoming, this is it

Cons: Rude and unknowledgeable staff

If you want to come and see locals croon it's the place to grab a java or a scone, but don't expect it to be the best of the west. The atmosphere however, makes up for the less than par lattes. Poets with verse, and crooners with acoustic can come and make a show here and it's a fun place to do a little discovery of that way way indie band.

I met a bunch of my friends here to catch up. This was the first coffee shop that I went to since I moved to LA that is non-Starbucks. I was totally in love with the atmosphere. The food was great, in fact one of the only places that had food in the immediate area. Free wireless is a huge bonus if you want to a cool place to work. By mid-afternoon, some people started playing live music. It definitely adds to the cool vibe the place has going. Great place to go to.

UnUrban is a great place to hang with friends and a great venue to play some music or just sit and listen. The sound isn't the best, because it's a strange shaped room, but the people are great (the baristas and the sound guy)!! It's an awesome environment, really creative and is pretty happening. They have an open mic on Friday nights that gets a pretty good turn out with a really supportive and encouraging crowd. The only bummer is that parking is hard to come by ... being Santa Monica and all ...

i didnt really eat here, but i went in with my friends to get coffee. the crowd really depends on the music playing there. the time i went there, there was a really country/folk-rock band playing in the restaurant half of the store. That room looked like an old western, with a bunch of old gristly men in hats eating and drinking while listening to hokey music. In the portion of the store that we were in, the coffee portion, there was crazy artwork and all the people that worked there had at least three piercings and/or a tattoo. The atmosphere makes the cafe. I've never been any place like this in my life.
