Get Caffeinated at Intelligentsia Logan Square

Give your morning routine a jolt

We used to envy L.A.

Not the perfect weather (wind burn is soul charging) or endless beautiful people (sturdy trumps purdy in this town). More its tricked-out Intelligentsia coffee shops, which beat ours bar none.

Now, that’s changed: Intelligentsia Logan Square recently opened its doors.

The shop aims to break our city’s coffee culture mold, introducing a more involved drink-making process. Fashioned like a modern diner, the space revolves around a main bar, where baristas brew to order via pour-over, Chemex, and the like. (Commuters and customers on the go can head to the takeaway bar for batch-brewed beverages.)

Grab a bar stool, a bit of lit (art, food, and fashion journals are for sale), and your Floriole Cafe and Bakery or Cook au Vin nosh of choice: basket of toast and jam, buttery brioche, milk shakes (because why not?). 

And coast.

Intelligentsia, 2642 North Milwaukee Avenue, between Sawyer and Kedzie Avenues (773-945-1690 or intelligentsiacoffee.com).
