Great Coffee!

I was in the Silver Lake area for the sole purpose of visiting a store on Sunset, but I accidentally stumbled across Intelligentsia (perhaps not an accident) and I knew that the coffee would be amazing. It has a gorgeous outdoor area, but unfortunately for me, there was no space available to sit... read more

You need a cool dog, a detached look, semi-cool clothes and a wallet with cash not to mention a secured outside table in which to be seen for the total Intelligentsia Coffee experience. Coffee was so so, too expensive and we had to wait in a long line to get it. Why? Save your money, go somewhere else and enjoy... More

I'd had this coffee elsewhere so I decided to go to the source. It was good, hot Oaxacan coffee that did the trick, but it was a bit too expensive. Nice setting to have coffee, just don't be surprised to see that it will be more than $5.

I accidentally passed by here when I was walking to Dodger Stadium for a tour. I was planning on visiting before I left LA, but when you're led you have to take advantage. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the my drink tasted great. I have to buy some coffee now!

I wish I lived closer to an Intelligentsia because they are one of my favorite coffee houses. Absolutely delicious latte. This location is beautiful and relaxing with nice shaded outdoor seating and the staff is always friendly.

Undrinkable coffee. Bitter and tasteless. Much ado about nothing! For all the fanfare about roasting, brewing etc. etc. the coffee is so bitter that quinine tastes better. It is good packaging for a very poor product.

Whenever I am in the area of Abbot Kinney I will have to make a stop for the BEST mocha in LA. I have high standards coming from San Francisco however I found Intelligentsia has great coffees and a fun space in Venice.

For Aussies in LA looking for great coffee just like at home this place is a must! Parking is relatively easy (this is LA after all) service is great, as is the coffee! Great place to start your morning before exploring LA
