Jong is -nuts- about coffee so the Intelligentsia Coffee Venice Coffeebar on Abbot Kinney Blvd was a stop we were not going to be allowed to miss on our trip to LA.
The staff go out of their way to create an individualized experience for each customer. Line up for your one-on-one coffee consultation with a barista who will take your order and chat with you about the single origin grinds being offered that day.
After making your selection, cozy up in the lush outdoor alcove or industrial work stations. Intelligentsia has a pretty sweet logo so you can grab some nice swag too. I bought a nice branded notneutral cup and a hoodie with thoughtful holes in the pockets for an iPhone headphone jack.
The Abbott Kinney area is a hipster approved place to kill some time. Go for the coffee and all the pretty people.
