    Similar to Blue Bottle but with more choice in (cold pressed) juices and more space to sit/work. You may want to out-"intelligentsia" them though and avoid the $12 price tag on their juices!

    This well-known coffee shop has become synonymous with high-quality coffee and carefully crafted beverages, and it remains the most reliable spot for a good, more often great, cup of coffee. Read more

    excellent ambient!!! the concept of this coffee shop is different than our coffee shops in Europe. They are very much into the quality of the coffee they offer, and the service is equally good

    Love that the interior looks like a coffee science lab. They specialize in hand-crafted pour over coffee, and have solid espresso drinks as well.

    It strikes me how little has happened in the world of artisanal coffee over the last ten years This this place is still the (well deserved) gold standard, with some of the best pour overs known to man

    This is by far the best coffee and atmosphere in LA. The baristas never rush, are clean and know exactly what they are doing. Perfect coffee every time.

    Quite busy on a weekday but it's a nice atmosphere and great coffee! The baristas are quick and great at handling the pace.

    Worlds away from the OG Chicago locations, this branch is an oasis of indoor/outdoor seating apropos to the general Abott Kinney vibe.

    Yesterday, my sister and I went to this coffee shop to catch up sometime, and we just love the taste of their coffee. It was freshly brewed. We also love how the barista made our coffee.

    You know night clubs? This is a day club. Coffee is dependable as always. Architecture is crazy but may be too wild for work sometimes. Other times, no prob.

    One of the coolest looking/feeling coffee shops around. The vibe's so chill that it doesn't even feel bothersome to wait on line.

    There will likely be a line, but the coffee and service are worth the wait. Treat yourself to a treat with your coffee. Churro croissant for the win!!

    Come charged. It seems all Intelligentsia shops go the extra mile to ensure there are no accessible power outlets. Great brew tho!

    This place is like the "mecca" for coffee shops... Their coffee making process comes to another level, very professional and clean! Intelligentsia is a must in LA.

    Welcome to Mecca! If you're searching for coffee nirvana, you're finally found it. They make the best espresso based drinks that you can get anywhere.

    The chocolate in the mocha is rich and not too sweet. And the matcha latte is one of the best in town. But yes, this place is expensive AF.

    Grab a latte (LA's finest) for 5 bucks and a seat to get some work done (u may need to brin headphones as it does get noisy at times). Park in the back for free and use the back door entrance.

    Deadly serious about perfect craft coffee, tea, and espresso. While the attitude may intimidate, it's worth hacking through the pretension, bc you'll realize they earned it.

    Best coffee in LA. For NYers who know 9th street espresso level of coffee will be very pleased. Venice location is predictably cool. Staff dressed like Rosie the riveter and know how to make coffee.

    Interesting set up for a cafe. When it opened, it was revolutionary. Solid espresso drinks, but their roast has been getting lighter in the last couple years (meaning a more sour cup).

    It gets no better than this. From the playful architecture and design, to the sharply tailored and supremely knowledgeable baristas down to the very last drop of Black Cat - Intelli is a must do in LA

    My favorite in the chain. It's like an amphitheater set up where you get a personal barista. Always a necessary stop when in Venice.

    The year-round Black cat espresso, despite the revolving door of seasonal coffees, will always do you good. Before 10a, the soundtrack skews Motown & soul.

    L.A.'s most buzz-worthy java joint crafts espresso, cappuccino and macchiato for the hipster set. Coffee connoisseurs will geek out over the store's custom-made machinery and well-versed baristas.

    Possibly my fave coffee/espresso in Los Angeles. It's hard to find coffee as good as Australia, but these guys come pretty close

    Their iced teas are fantastic. Give the Emerald Spring a shot. Corn flake cookies are also amazing.

    I think this is the place where you'll find more Apple products and bearded hipsters than in any other places in Venice. Cool place if you are OK with it. Music too loud though.

    The Americano is smooth and not sour. Friendly staff and lots of laptops running. The hipster design is a little over the top.

    Parking sucks here! You might have to huff it a few blocks but, it's def worth your time! Maybe, grab a bite to eat @ Gjelina, Casa Linda or Hal's first. Then, come chill on a brew & WiFi

    Best coffee I've had in LA, hands down. Yeah, it's pricey, but the atmosphere is cool and unique and the baristas are awesome. And they use Strauss milk!!

    The shorter, dark haired barista dude brews an awesome French Pressed Coffee. I recommend you find him out to help when you're in line! 👍☕🍵
