Feel how you feel about the hipster baristas or the gentrification of Silverlake, Intelligentsia is serving some of the best coffee in L.A with their signature black cat blend - and probably the best cappuccino. This cafe is the beating pulse of Sunset Junction. One of the reasons I come here is because there's no wifi, so I can actually work instead of checking my email every 5 minutes. There's a great mix of writers, artists, and locals.
LA has gone crazy for this coffee. If you go, be prepared to wait in line and pay quite a bit for their delicious offerings.
I love my coffee how I like my men, very strong.
Perfect cappuccinos every time. Oh and they sell Short Cake pastries. Double win!
Considered among the best coffee in LA, this was the first location outside of its native Chicago. Expect lots of laptops, creative types and lines out the door. The patio is the place to be.
Great coffee in a great environment – I had heard a lot of buzz about the opening of Intelligentsia in Silver Lake. I finally got over to Sunset Junction one Friday night around 10pm, hoping for a refreshing respite from the typical stale/burnt taste of my local coffee chain. Next door, Cafe Stella was in full swing and the little covered patio outside the coffee shop was sparsely populated, with candles lit on every table. I got a cappuccino, which came out adorned in their signature "latte art" style in an actual coffee cup, not made out of paper. The coffee, the candle-lit patio, the Sunset Junction setting; everything was perfect! I loved the design and simple decor of the seating area, complete with red walls and blue and white tiled floors, and the baristas were very friendly and helpful. Inside they also sell beans by the bag as well as a nice selection of coffee makers and accessories. It was a great relaxing activity for a cold night and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for good coffee in L.A.!
