Consistently great espresso drinks with strong full flavor, friendly staff and always a treat. I buy the beans too!
I've been in town for two days now and I've had as many trips to Intelligentsia. It's down the street from the Ashtanga yoga class I'm attending (Noah Williams) in Silverlake. So far I've treated myself to lattes and a "self-pour" (individually filtered hand-drip coffee) and have been delighted with both drinks. I expect to be back tomorrow!
If you drink your coffee black, and want to appreciate the different layers to a coffee like you would appreciate a wine, then Intelligentsia is where you want your cup of java. I had the Ethiopian blend, which was brewed properly and I could appreciate the blueberry and strawberry tones, slight undercurrent of lemon citrus, and the mild acidity. All... More
Would get five stars but sometimes there are not enough seats and the line-up to order is long. Complimentary wifi, excellent coffee and delicious pastry-thingies. Nice staff, friendly clientele. What's not to like?
Amazing - would love to have stayed longer - but was on a deadline to see as much of pasadena as possible! The tea was delicious!
Haven't ordered anything yet because both times I have gone here, it's been too crowded. No seating. Maybe I should just grab a coffee to go. Looks nice inside and outdoor patio is ok. Nothing special. People rave about this place and I don't know why yet. Hopefully I will get to try something soon.
We've been coming here twice a day on this visit. Great coffee, friendly service. Some indoor seating available and ample outdoor seating.
I'm sitting here drinking my gorgeous cup of coffee. Eating a homemade breakfast oatmeal cookie, using free internet and people watching. My regular stop when I'm in town. We usually take a couple of pounds of coffee home with us to carry us through to our next visit.
To see and be seen, where the science and art of all things coffee is cultivated.
