I've been to a few locations now. I will say that the packaged intelligentsia you purchase by the pouch is amazing.
Although I am not the biggest coffee expert, I can say that although intelligentsia coffee is the best tasting that I've had when I brew it at home; I can't say the same about the ones brewed in the stores. Overall its good. But can't justify the price tag on the coffee.
Five Star Rating - Packaged Intelligentsia, Three Star Rating - Store; Four - average

This is one of my favorite spots to get some writing/art done. I also like coming here to read, and this is also a great spot for groups of 2-4 (relatively small space). No outlets but free wifi, nice natural light during the daytime, plus it's a very well ventilated and open, airy space.
Light, summery spot during weekend mornings. It gets super busy during the weekend (and with good reason!). Excellent coffee and tea (great selection), prompt service.

Really good coffee -- Intelligentsia doesn't disappoint in that area, ever. Black coffee is great. Nice location in Abbot Kinney (sunny, friendly hipsters, etc.). Nice place to read a book outdoors, not so good for work (no outlets, kind of noisy, crowded, etc.).

This is a hipster central in my book. There's plenty of seating so it's great for hanging out with friends. Some of the barista are a bit snooty but I guess they can be since they're pouring a high quality espresso beverage. I did enjoy my mocha, it wasn't sweet and it was just perfect. I liked it!Recommended for:Trendsters

I walked by Intelligentsia and had to stop in. On a random Tuesday afternoon around 2pm, it was packed! I was lucky to find a table in large outdoor sitting area. They offer free wifi but for some reason I was unable to log on.
The workers were all super friendly and something about all the people in Silver Lake intrigues me. It's very different from other parts of LA in a very good way. People are more laid back, they are their own person and I find it so enjoyable to sip on coffee and people watch.
I absolutely LOVED their Chai Latte. It was soooo good! I also tried their chocolate chunk type cookie and it was tasty as well.
