the coffee is good and it has a nice atmosphere, however the loud music makes it overwhelming.
Definitely worth a visit if you're traveling to Chicago!
Best mocha in town
Chocolate hazelnut vegan cookie, Emerald Spring green tea.
Saturday is crazy here but their foamy creamy cappuccino is superb. If you like espresso more than watery American coffee, this is your place! Besides it's close to one of the main train stations!
Large space with quality interior design.
A bit pretentious but when your product (coffee) is that good, you can get away with it. Ask for recos on which brew to get.
Cold brew and seasonal treats
Tasty coffee. Could use more power outlets though.
Don't waste your time coming here for espresso. Unfortunately they don't know how to make it.
Ethiopian Espresso is definitely the best choice to try!
Phenomenal cold brew.
Black Cat Espresso and mochas
Incredible as usual
Cold brew always tastes good on a warm day.
Hey Intelligentsia Coffee, you should join Freebie! It’s pretty rad and the benefits are great for both you and me. Check it out!
I had the Cinnamon Spice Latte at Wildberry in Grant Park.
It's all good at intelligentsia! Don't let the hipster vibe scare you away, just ask for a coffee and they'll treat you well.
Delicious coffee if you don't mind the wait
Jam packed on Saturdays!
Offering best coffee in town :-)
The drinks are always quality however the vibe at this shop is more "laptop" oriented and less "chatting with friends after dinner." The intelli fresh flowers are also something I look forward to.
The staff is pretentious and everything is over priced and not worth it
Good roast, great place to work
This place is always packed on the weekend. Tough to get a seat. Though the line moves quick. So get the coffee to go.
My favorite latte in the area so far.
Pretty good iced coffee, hard to find a place to sit on the weekend.
Chai tea latte = delicious.
Cool vibe. Coffee always amazing. Mexican Perla a winner.
A busy place to do business. If you happen to nab a table during the work day - covet it but be respectful and don't sprawl out.
The original, and still my favorite Intelligentsia.
slightly more expensive then all the other places, but absolutely worth it! Best Chai!
Very artful brews. Try a straight espresso.
Best coffee place in Chicago. If your in the city visit one off their coffee shops
The third or fourth Chicago Intelligentsia I've visited and just as good as all of them.
Love the remodel.
Could've done without the croissant and sticky bun (I prefer semifreddi's and tartine), but the Agua Preta brewed coffee was the right amount of dark/bold for me!
I like the new image but liked the old one better. Great for a shot of espresso with a sparkling water cup aside!
No matter how big they get, still the coolest place on earth. Get the cortado to say (Gibraltar, I guess).
1 star. Insufficient sockets for laptop chargers. 30 people in here. 29 laptops. 4 sockets.
Free cup of coffee w/ purchase of beans!
Why would you be going anywhere else if you're serious about java
The remodel is great. The original location. Great tunes. Supreme coffee.
