Today’s truly successful Fast Casual restaurants deliver great food, great value, exemplary service, AND dedicated involvement within the communities they serve. This is the foundation of Urbane Cafe, a family owned, fast casual restaurant, known for their fire-baked focaccia bread sandwiches and unique salads since 2003. On Monday, November 6th, they will celebrate the Grand Opening of their 13th restaurant in California, this time in the San Diego County city of Encinitas, located at 1042 N. El Camino Real.
