Baked daily at the downtown location, Urth Caffe is known to have one of the best apple pies around. The fresh pies are sent from their downtown restaurant to one of the 3 locations around Los Angeles and come with a crust made up of butter and shortening as well as sanding sugar for that extra delicious taste. Other favorites at Urth Caffe include blueberry and cherry pies. Come hungry because their pies are large enough for two to share.
