Caffeine Dreams: Haute 5 Coffee Houses in Los Angeles


You were worried we’d forgotten about this one, weren’t you? How could we neglect to include the caffeine-masters at Intelligentsia? With one outpost in Venice and one in Silver Lake, the hipsters of Los Angeles are kept in a constant state of adrenaline by coffee beans imported from Papua New Guinea, Burundi, Rwanda, and Colombia.  Both locations, with modern industrial décor and a spirited atmosphere, offer an experience in coffee like none other.  Yes they have cookies and scones to go with their brews, but the focus here is on what you’re drinking.  Learn more about that caffeine you so desperately need in the morning or just let your barista surprise you – either way, at Intelligentsia, you know you’re in good hands.

Intelligentsia is located at 1331 Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice  310.399.1233 or at 3922 W. Sunset Blvd in Silver Lake  323.663.6173
