Just arrived in from Melbourne in transit to Detroit and my bro swung by airport and took me to intelligentsia for quick fuel up! Flat white and macchiato later and feeling the jet lag disappear already. I love this place! There's a reason it's so many Aussies fav place to grab a cup of joe!
Very good coffee and quite a cool place. Expect a big line up and a healthy spoonful of pretentious with your coffee...
What more can you ask for. Four (4) Synesso twins head brew units. One (1) 4 brewhead GS2. And so many grinders that I can't count them all. Here is a place where you can enjoy their game changing BlackCat espresso, and then compare it with a single origin expresso. There are many pour... Read more
An absolute must visit. The whole experience is awesome. The venue sets the scene for a brilliant coffee and the in the cup result does not disappoint. The coffee menu alone is a highlight.
Very cool cafe in Abbot Kinney Blvd in Santa Monica...
I went 4 days in a row, all the coffees were good, although quite inconsistent from barista to barista. One of those coffee's was amazing, so I think my biggest frustration was knowing how good it "could" taste, and not having... Read more

Amazing coffee, amazing setting. Very good quality espressos, friendly baristas and top quality machines (they make their own). This is a must visit!
1 Espresso, 1 Cappuccino
To think the US doesn't have coffee to Australian standards is very very wrong, It may be a rare occurance but its very possible to find great coffee and this is where.
So glad I found this place on my stop over in L.A.

Wow. This is a cafe you can't stop talking about. I read the reviews before I went and thought they may have been a bit too exaggerated. But no, the cafe is everything people have said and more.
The line up took about 5 minutes, and it seemed we got in just in time, as this place gets busy.... Read more

Intelligentsia sets the standard for American espresso and this place is a coffee snob's fantasy. All the baristas are excellent. I was particularly impressed by M'lissa, Nicely and Dan. It's best to go there early in the morning or in the late afternoon for a lovely affogato. The lines can be... Read more
Mindblowing coffee experience in the US. Struggled to find this place and it was worth it. Great set up, baristas happy to have a chat and uber cool. Best coffee
I nearly drowned in Hipsters, but the coffee was perfect. Great Burundi pour-over and Rwandan macchiato. Constantly busy, industrial vibe.
the week i was in LA i would end up here everyday. the coffee, normally i had espresso, perfect each time. the one time i had a pastry was also very nice. a must visit
AMAZING. Wonderful helpful staff. Awesome interior. What a cool space! Great coffee. Whole experience.... Tops!!! Best so far on our whirl wind US spro tour ;-)
One of my favorite cafes!!
pretty good. neat idea. not so friendly when its busy though. the Marzocco in the back is really awesome. definately a shop everyone should see
Brilliant concept. This place is a must visit for every coffee lover. It is great as the customer to have the barista talk you though the preparation of your drinks. Exceptional latte art.
Intelligentisia Venice Coffeebar is amazing!! What a great concept. To have multiple baristas each on their own 2 group Synesso with Mazzer grinders & tamp area that each barista can customise to their height preference by hydraulic lifting benches! From the front this store is very subtle and... Read more
