Intelligentsia Coffee
Photograph: Joe Lieske Intelligentsia Coffee

The west side outpost of LA's most famous coffee bar is only marginally less of a scene than its big sis in Silver Lake. With long lines, a menagerie of dogs tied up outside, and the best-tasting brew available by the beach, Intelligentsia is crowded but decidedly worth the hassle.

The Intelligentsia in Venice has a great design but get ready for hipster snobbery of another level. It's not obtrusive but this place certainly omits a vibe which you either love or can't stand. Most people here seem to be on laptops making use of the wifi but its the quality of the coffee that brings me back. If that's your number one concern, it's a great place to go but maybe bring a laptop if you want to fit in. 


This coffee shop has delicious chai lattes! The baristas can be kind of snobby and the place doesn't have outlets if you're looking to work there with a laptop for long hours. The outdoor seating is neat.
