    Chai tea latte is very good. Tasty sandwiches.

    Perhaps the best cold brew coffee outside of Cape Town. Their ham and cheese croissant with a smidge of whole-grain mustard is so good, I want to hollow it out and live in it.

    Love the space, great espresso like all the Intelligentsia locations throughout LA. Love how they give you a side of bubbly water with a Macchiato

    Like all Intelligentsia in the nation, expect only the best coffee from this cafe!  With so many beans and blends to choose from, you are bound to find the coffee that is perfect for your taste.

    If you're a true coffee drinker, you won't add milk or sugar! ;)

    I'm in iced mocha and butter croissant heaven. The vibe and the decor is also divine.

    Pour over and espresso are very good. Really enjoyed the Burundi single origin. Overall quality coffee.

    Big space. More like a bar/lounge than a cafe. Too cool for me.

    Good coffee AND good wine.

    When you venture inland & the temp is hotter than midday in the desert, get the iced chai. For some odd reason, it's infinitely better than the hot version.

    Very trendy, great lattes and atmosphere

    Excellent coffee. The line starts closer to the door and not directly in front of the payment iPad.

    They use a reverse osmosis water filtration system and extremely high quality beans. Smooth and delicious coffee and very cool interior design.

    The coffee here is great, and the baristas are far less pretentious than they are at other intelligentsia locations

    Ava · August 26, 2014

    the Angeleno is best iced coffee drink on the menu. also try the feta scallion scone.

    all the deliciousness, none of the hipster douchebags of the Silverlake location.

    Free meter parking on Raymond 8-11 am daily. Also a 15-minute space there on the corner near Colorado.

    One of the few places that knows how to make a proper Flat White.

  • Jasmine S.

    Grab an iced latte here for that extra kick in the AM or for a afternoon pick me up! A great hangout if you're looking to catch up with a friend.

    Accompany a slowly dripped Kenyan with cured-meat plates, including Fra Mani salametti , as well as quite decent prosciutti cured in the restaurant's back room. Read more

    Angeleno FTW! But beware, it has 4 shots. Also the best mocha in town.

    Sat at the bar for 10 minutes-completely ignored. Been there several times-worst service ever!

  • Eric G.

    Great place and of course serving some of the best coffee there is. If you want to use your computer beware there aren't plugs so charge it before hand... + wine and beer is served here too :)

    Lines always are long and tables are tough to find. Great atmosphere and quality coffee.

    Angelino always and forever! Best cold drink!

  • Leonardo D.

    Great mochas but 2% is as light as it gets. No almond milk but soy milk is available if you're into that sort of thing.

    Leonardo De La Rocha · September 10, 2013
  • Kevin P.
