Casual cafe operator Ugo has expanded to Downtown, bringing to fruition a longstanding goal to drop simple Italian fare into the neighborhood. With locations in Culver City and at Santa Monica Place, the growing company hopes to become an all-day option for anyone in the busy 6th Street corridor.

This latest Ugo takes over the long-shuttered Bruno Coffee at 6th and Olive, just off Pershing Square. It’s a space built more for casual snacking than a laid-back meal, but that certainly won’t deter anyone looking to dip in for a morning coffee and pastry. The shop also serves gelato, a variety of pre-made salads and sandwiches, as well as freshly prepared panini.

Hours for Cafe Ugo Downtown run seven days a week, with weekday hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and weekend hours starting at 10 a.m.
