  • Gone are the extra-large drinks and blender mochas, and in are a constantly rotating series of seasonal single origin coffees for the manual brew bar, or feature single origin and blended espressos.
  • "Back home where it all started in 1995, baristas keep it real with brisk service, perfect cappuccinos and meticulous cups of pour-over."
  • Worth the wait!
  • These registers should be everywhere!
  • Thought youd want to know: Intelligentsia has been nominated for Best Local Coffee Roaster in Time Out Chicagos 2011 Eat Out Awards. Vote now!
  • If you tip your bartender then tip your barista!
  • Great service
  • Not the best place if you're in a hurry. But most definitely the best place for amazing coffee.
  • The redesign is very nice and much needed but where's all the electrical outlets?!
  • The baristas here turn brewing into a work of art. You'll be motivated to get up early to grab a cup of coffee before the daily grind.
  • Buy a pound on Tuesday or Thursday and save $2.
  • Cold brew always tastes good on a warm day.
  • Service isn't fast but it was fun to watch them turn out the coffee! Got the la perla & it was great. No sugar needed, which isn't usual for me.
  • Probably my favorite coffee house in the country.
  • At the North Broadway flagship, enjoy free Wi-Fi and glam-rock tunes with your signature syrupy and sweet Black Cat Classic espresso.
  • I always got a Gibraltar but always wanted more. I started ordering a medium latte with an extra extraction. Very similar in taste and you get a LOT more. Makes me so happy!!!
  • Ask the barista to explain the differences among the beans if you don't have a favorite. They're all quite knowledgeable. I haven't been steered wrong yet, and now I know how to ask for what I prefer.
  • Espresso purists, pour-over nerds and latte lovers alike can find their caffeine fix at this coffee shop, which works directly with growers to develop its coffees and roasts its own beans locally.
  • Everything I've ever had from here is delicious. There is so much care out into their drinks, never had one that isn't perfect.
  • Line was long but the coffee is worth it. Great renovations too!
