If you need a real coffee fix in Chicago, you need Intelligentsia. Love their featured brew. Wish they had more tables.
This is the kind of place I could sit for hours watching the staff work away. You can tell they all love what they do and are passionate and knowledgeable about coffee. Not only do they know how to make a great cup (whether it be an espresso, pour-over, filter..you name it!), they clearly know where their coffee comes from,... More
I visited this shop and the one at Logan Square during a recent stay in Chicago. Both were outstanding in service and coffee quality. I particularly enjoyed their house roasted - Black Cat - macchiato. The cost is quite inexpensive given the quality of coffee. Must visit locations.
We were on a walking tour and our guide, James, who knew we love good coffee, took us by here. One of the two best coffees I had in our 12 days of travel, which included Manhattan and Washington, DC.
This was a real find. Perfect coffee beautifully presented. Friendly staff who love what they do. And in the Monadnock building too. What more could I ask? Oh yes, I can give St*****ks a wide berth while I'm in Chicago. .

This remains my favourite place for coffee in Chicago despite some growing competition. My choice is always a flat white and this is one of their specialities. We had to drop by on our most recent trip to the 'windy city' and once again I was not disappointed.
Stopped here on a hot day due to the reputation. It is totally deserved. The cappuccino was fantastic. None of that mountain-of-foam starbucks-style garbage; it was real, European-style cappuccino. There is not a large amount of seating at this location. Service was quick and prices were fair. If you want coffee prepared by people who know how it should be... More
My husband LOVES coffee and I only sort of like it, but we both love returning to intelligentsia over and over. Wonderful ambience and coffee! Definitely a must-see in Chicago if you love coffee!
Intelligentsia is to Starbucks what the Space Shuttle is to paper airplanes. This was a great place to sip a latte and do some people watching. I took a seat in the back and watched them come and go. The latte was so good that I had another.
