Wonderful place for coffee. The iced mocha is excellent! They finally have WiFi, but space is a premium. The workers can be a bit snobby if you don't know what you are doing, but are generally friendly. One of the beat coffee places in town. @3p on Saturday, crowded.

I have recently started appreciating coffee. Starbucks only gets me through the day, but for good coffee, Inteligencia is a reliable place. A good slow drip coffee can be had black and Inteligencia deliver on this principle. Their staff is friendly and they are knowledgeable enough to help with recommendations.

One of the grand-daddies of LAs coffee scene, now with a branch in Pasadena. Good coffee, nice interior, and free wifi. One of the better coffee stops in town.

Decent experience! Everything was sooooo expensive! Came here one morning for breakfast and coffee. We walked down and found this place which was super cute on the outside and on the inside. There was a bunch of yoga/gym rats in line ahead of us in their designer yoga pants that clearly cost more than $100 each. Definitely a very snooty clientele. We ordered a hot tea each, and then 6 different pastries to share. Each pastry item was well over $5, which is definitely more than what I'm used to paying even at a fancy coffee shop. Our hot teas took a long time which was weird since teas are easy to make. The pastry items were interesting with random flavors such as the spam kimchi croissant, which taste pretty good. The other items were ok, with 2 of them being very hard and difficult to chew. Service was nice, but I definitely would not go out of my way to come here.

Intelli is my go to and has been since the opening night launch party years back. They are masters of consistency, cup to cup, month to month, you will always know what you are getting. People complain about pricing, but they don't realize the quality and expertise they are paying, and that simply put and education issue. Between the 20% disc for rolling in on a bike, to the well designed layout and aesthetics, and the required skills of the baristas, intelli always gets my vote, plus beer and wine! And as an aside, There aren't outlets for a reason, Coffee camping kills profit margins, OT square footy is expensive, and always tip your Barista.

Intelligentsia has incredible coffee and espresso--we all know that. The product is top-notch and the baristas are all experts. But I like the Pasadena location in particular for its atmosphere. It's just a cool place to hang out!

These days not too many places can offer an espresso close to ideal. Some doesn't even have proper espresso porcelain. Here at Intelligentsia, they have it all. Their espresso totally deserves five stars. Their china and utensils are good. Last but not least, I enjoy the atmosphere here.
