Is the coffee good? Yes! But, the line is consistently out the door and there are plenty of other good coffee shops in the area with seats available and no wait. Head up Sunset to Cafe Vita or Dinosaur and save yourself the wait and avoid the hipster inundation.
Line is long but it's really worth the wait. Limited outdoor seating. Love their decor. It's always nice to get a cup of good coffee and walk around Sunset Junction.

had the ravioli there the other day with a latte....very good and light pasta. salad was also very fresh and clean. Latte was great too and its a good price for how nice it is in there. Great atmosphere! AAAA
definitely recommend this place. Sounds system is awesome. I believe Solutions in Los Angeles (nextdoor) did it. That makes me like it more haha.

I truly believe that Intelligentsia makes the best cup of coffee in Los Angeles. If I want a real afternoon treat/pick me up, I'll definitely stop in for a large cup of iced coffee.
Sometimes it can take a bit to get your specialty coffee drink, but it's always worth the wait.

Hands-down the best coffee in Los Angeles. Intelligentsia puts a lot of work into making each individual cup, and it shows in the taste, and price. Be sure, it's not the type of coffee you drink four times a day (leave that to Dunkin' Donuts), but it's a nice treat for yourself on those days you need that extra kick.

I went to Intelligentsia yesterday for a meeting. It was my 1st time there so I did not know how the line worked. I got what I can only describe as a dirty look when I walked up to the assembly like line to ask a question about their blended type drinks. This annoyed the person I was speaking to as I did not know the menu. OK, fine.
Then I pay the $5.50 for my regular size iced coffee with vanilla (I guess syrup? looked like coffee with ice but had a hint of vanilla). As I had waited almost 15 minutes to place my order I figured it would take a few minutes for it to come up so I went to sit with the person I was meeting with.
About 3 minutes later, 4 TOPS, a man came outside and practically pushed my drink it my face. He said in a VERY rude tone- ""In the future you need to wait for your drink. We do NOT do table service here"". I said ""I'm sorry! I was going to come pick it up"". He reiterated I needed to wait at the counter and added that my drink was just sitting there.
I swear not more than 4 minutes went by. I frequent Coffee Bean and Solar de Cahuenga often, both of which also do not offer table service. It is OK however if you go speak to someone, use the restroom, what have you. This guy spoke to me in such a way (and not a quiet tone might I add) that I felt like I had offended him and the entire establishment. Had I not been there for a meeting I would have left.
The guy was tall, skinny, close to bald head with a sneer. Steer clear on him if you would like to be treated with a smile.
I have read the reviews here that it is a super cool place with great coffee (my coffee was indeed good) but I just cannot spend another dime there after being talked to like I has an infectious disease.. b/c I sat down before retrieving my coffee.

It lives completely up to its Chicago reputation. The staff takes their coffee making very seriously. Not taking it to go? They'll be quick to tell you porcelain makes all the difference in taste. Go for the drip coffees of the day, brewed on the spot one cup at a time. The lattes are pretty damn good too. It's pet friendly for those curious.
