    Just so you know, the soy mocha is great iced on a hot day as well. It's one of the most delicious things ever created by human hands.

    Grab a cushion and sit anywhere on the concrete steps. One of the smartest designs I have ever seen.

    I don't doubt their passion, but I do feel they're losing their touch. The espresso has been inconsistent and often more bitter then usual. It's time to move on, been good while it lasted.

    the best coffee in los angeles. order the soy latte, even if you can have regular milk. love the dirty-thirties clothing the staff wears.

    Long line, über pretentious, crowded, one unisex bathroom....but the hot chocolate and chai are worth it.

    Does Intelligentsia coffee make me more intelligent or just more pretentious? No complaints either way.

    The hot chocolate here is amazing, unlike any other I've ever had. The mocha powder at the end of the cup is the best part. ;)

    The weekday Slow Bar (8am-2pm) is a treat - skip the line, sit down for a few minutes and treat yourself to anything the weekly barista has planned!

    Apparently these guys don't allow you to have your dog on the patio. You have to tie them up on the street...

    The lattes are almost too artfully made to drink at times... but the best coffee drink is awaiting you with the first sip!

    Every coffee is a pour over so it takes forever. Line is ridiculously long, but scared to run to the also ridiculously long restroom line for fear of losing my place
